Netizens were annoyed with “Kabayan” Noli de Castro, news anchor of ABS-CBN’s TV Patrol and former Vice President of the Philippines over “Rude” on-air attitude towards Winnie Cordero.
Was Noli de Castro rude to Winnie Cordero in an on-air conversation during one of the episodes of ABS-CBN’s nightly news program? You judge.
In the said program, Cordero– a segment host for the morning program “Umagang Kay Ganda”–reported on the preparations being done by Manila Mayor Joseph Estrada for the upcoming procession of the Black Nazarene on Friday.
At the end of the report, De Castro commented about the ambulant vendors during the procession.
“Sana’y aksiyunan din ni Mayor Erap yung pakiusap ng mga deboto, Winnie, na yung mga ambulant vendors, lalo na yung mga nagbebenta ng mga fishball–kasi ano yun e, may stick–na basta na lang tinatapon ng mga kumakain, at saka yung mga nagtatapon din ng mga plastic na lalagyan ng tubig,” De Castro told Cordero.
“Sana ay wag sumama or sumabay ang mga ambulant vendors sa mga deboto. Yun ang pinakikiusap natin kahit nung isang taon pa,” De Castro added.
Cordero tried to explain to de Castro that the city government are looking at the issue of ambulant vendors as one of the things that need to be fixed.
But De Castro replied with an apparent ‘rude’ attitude as how netizens concluded — to the point that he cut off Cordero on her explanation.
Netizens immediately made a negative reactions about de Castro’s attitude towards Cordero, saying the “TV Patrol” co-anchor was “rude” and “unprofessional.”
Dear Noli de Castro, its one thing to be assertive, and another to be rude. Very unpro behaviour from a seasoned news reader. #shocker

Deboto rin kasi 'tong si Noli de Castro ng Nazareno kaya medyo personal din sa kanya ang issue na 'to ano?
