Jessica Soho should be emulated


SOHO. Remains calm and collected, even when she’s reporting about controversial issues

Juan Miguel de Belen: “I’m an avid listener of Richard Enriquez’s show on dzMM, ‘Yesterday and Moonlight Serenade.’ He transports listeners to the past through a well-chosen lineup of songs that you don’t hear on other programs anymore!”

Other notes:

Marilyn Flores, office employee: “I admire Jessica Soho, because she doesn’t report the news in an ‘alarmist’ way. She remains calm and collected, even when she’s reporting on controversial issues. She should be emulated. That’s why I watch her ‘State of the Nation’ news program on GMA News TV every night!”

Marichu Albano, housewife: “One of the reasons why I watch ABS-CBN teleseryes is their use of OPM songs as soundtrack. Even better, they use popular and well-sung tunes, beautifully re-arranged and rendered by the likes of Charice, Lani Misalucha and Jed Madela.

“I used to watch GMA 7’s ‘My Husband’s Lover,’ but the relative overuse of its theme song, ‘One More Try,’ is a turn-off. Playing Kuh Ledesma’s song twice or thrice should be enough—more than that is torture!”

Ronnie Macaraig, film buff: “After last month’s successful Cinemalaya fest, cineastes will be treated to another batch of indies via the CineFilipino film festival, which unreels next month. Let’s support it!”

Marciana Sioson, televiewer: “Another former sexy actress who has morphed into a fine actress is Diana Zubiri. Her decision to transfer TV networks has worked in her favor. I’m glad that she’ll be seen soon in an upcoming ABS-CBN teleserye.”

    I didnt got the connection between the title and the contents of this story…I dont know what message the writer wanted to portray…

      Not your fault, really. It’s just one of those “reports” taken from people’s reactions in social media and elsewhere. Everyone does it — PDI, TV Patrol, 24 Oras, Rappler. “Journalists” these days are so lazy and sloppy they pass off people’s opinions as actual news.

        It a paid infomercial using fake names the Napoles way

    Yes, the likes of Jessica Soho, Ted Failon, and Nestor Torre has become a rare breed indeed. Most current Mass Media practitioners are sadly so much less competent, unprofessional, unprincipled, and undisciplined. Perhaps envelopmental journalism may have been too much of a temptation.

    Jessica Soho….I don’tlike her.
    She reports news without passion, masyadong cold.
    Unlike Noli, headline news pa lang excited ka na.

    Besides, with the way Vice Kabayo made her the butt of jokes, na pinalampas niya as if she tolerated the bad manners of Kabayo.

    Yes, Jessica’s State of the Nation is so informative. Questions on her reporters clarify more on the issues and a good training ground for good reporting.
