(ISSUE) ABSCBN Defends Korina Sanchez, Told Inquirer Story ‘BASELESS’

Have you heard of Napolist now? Some high calider broadcast journalist are now involved in that alleged list. Korina Sanchez was mentioned on that part. Thanks to ABS-CBN spokesperson Bong R. Osorio, who finally issued a statement about the Inquirer’s story. He said the article is ‘baseless’ and ‘unsupported‘. Korina Sanchez actually denied receiving anything  from Janet Napoles or any of her representatives. “The sworn statement of the person named to have allegedly brought the gift to Korina had also denied participation in this alleged gift-giving.”, Osorio said.

“The PDI story was based on only one source – an entry in the computer files of Benhur Luy which was turned over to the paper one year ago. The imputations on the journalists named are serious and damaging to reputations built over many years. We encourage all responsible journalists to verify this entry’s accuracy by getting corroborating proof, a second source, and other supporting documents.”, Osorio added.

ABS-CBN spokesperson said that the network fully supports Korina Sanchez as their news organization remains committed to uphold the highest standards of professionalism, integrity and ethics in news reporting. ABS-CBN took note of Sanchez’s denial of having received P50,000 from the Napoles camp through Arroyo. “In our coverage of the PDAF scam, our journalists are mindful of the need to present the truth fully and be accountable for our actions., Osorio emphasized.
