The video interview conducted by Karen Davila on actress-turned politician Alma Moreno went viral, most netizens expressing their disappointment with how Alma answered the questions.
There are also those who criticized Karen for the way she handled the interview.
On her Instagram account, Karen posted a photo of her and Alma with the following caption :
“Hello @manrich143 – NO, interview questions are never given to an interviewee. I research a lot & try and come as prepared as I can every single day. If you watched the interview in full, you will see that I shifted to Tagalog, during many times – I tried to help her. My previous interviews were much tougher – w Sen Bongbong Marcos for example or MIAA GM Anghel Honrado. When someone is running for higher office – they must have an understanding of issues. This is a standard we owe to the Filipino people. You will choose in the end. My job is to ask the hard questions. Salamat Maam..”
Karen added the following comment:
“Please note – I didn’t ask Ms Alma Moreno about the West Phil Sea issue, but moved to RH Law because she said her advocacy is on “women”. I took on from there – her thoughts on RH Law which is a landmark law crafted for women. Salamat po!”
