ON SEC. MARTIN ANDANAR’S CLAIM THAT SENATE REPORTERS HAVE BEEN ‘BRIBED’ TO COVER LASCANAS’ TESTIMONY VERSUS PRES. DUTERTE
THE National Press Club of the Philippines joins its media colleagues in their denunciation of Sec. Andanar’s claim.
I am also covering the Senate beat and personally knows the strict adherence to the Journalist’s Code of Ethics that members of the press assigned thereat observe.
Sec. Andanar’s statement is also unfortunate as the NPC always holds him in high regard.
The least that Sec. Andanar can do is to apologize for this snafu. He should man up under the circumstances. ###
