An apology to Senator Grace Poe

/ 05:50 PM August 08, 2017

Senator Grace Poe during an ambush interview by Senate reporters on August 3, 2017.

On August 3, 2017, an story erroneously stated in the headline “Poe reminds Duterte: Watch your mouth.”

Senator Grace Poe, who was reacting earlier that day to President Duterte’s comments on former President Benigno Aquino III’s criticism of the administration’s campaign against illegal drugs during an ambush interview, actually said:


“Style na niya ‘yan pero syempre pag ikaw ay pinapakinggan ng mga bata, gagayahin. Sang-ayon ba tayo doon… Basta alam na niya anong tama o mali so paalala lang, SPG.”

The headline did not reflect the content of the interview and we later revised the head to “Poe on Duterte’s cursing: Kids are listening.”


We apologize for the mistake.
