Arnold Clavio Refuses to Say Sorry in Statement Re Rude Interview VIDEO

Written By Nikki Mendz on Thursday, November 7, 2013 | 11:56 PM

Arnold Clavio has issued a statement regarding his rude interview with Atty. Alfredo Villamor, the lawyer handling Janet Lim Napoles' serious illegal detention case, on Unang Hirit November 7 2013 episode.

Sadly, the apology that most of us were expecting, was not included in the said statement. Instead, it appears that Arnold Clavio preferred to justify the following:
  • that his only intention was to get information from Atty. Villamor about Napoles' plans of going to the Senate
  • that they had no choice but to call Atty. Villamor, the only lawyer left, as far as they know, who is still with Napoles
  • that admittedly, he went beyond his "limitations", simply because of his "intense desire" to let us (the viewers) know the news
In lieu of an apology, Arnold Clavio appealed for understanding if ever he had said anything improper or uncalled for (in his language, "wala sa lugar"). Nowhere in his 44-second statement did he make any mention of an apology, or sorry or "paumanhin" or even just a hint of remorse or regret. To me, it just sounded like an explanation or, as I've said, justification.

Well, if he thinks, that statement is enough, then fine. At least, we now know what kind of broadcaster he is. I am still hoping, though, that GMA Network will issue its own statement and what they intend to do with this kind of behavior that their broadcaster freely shows on air.

The Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB), for its part, has invited GMA 7 representatives from Unang Hirit to a conference set on Monday, November 11, citing concerns for children who may be watching the show. MTRCB chairperson Atty. Toto Villareal said that they also want to get the program's side on how they can self-regulate regarding incidents such as this.
