During a press con on Wednesday, Mary Grace Poe-Llamanzares, chair of the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board, was asked about Sen. Miriam Defensor-Santiago’s outburst during the just-concluded televised impeachment hearings. At one point, the senator-judge dropped a four-letter word that starts with the letter G.

Llamanzares said coverage of the trial fell under “straight presentation of a breaking news event” and couldn’t be sanctioned by the Board.

The trial was given the classification Parental Guidance. There was no violation, she asserted, but pointed out that the public looked up to lawmakers, who should therefore conduct themselves properly in public. She said the Board “continues to respect the goals of networks to entertain and inform the public.” Bayani San Diego Jr.
