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.

    Makes one wonder what type of decency the senate maintains when one of its own uses profanities on high profile hearings. Are they really like this in the senate? Is this normal for them? Must be.

      heard of the term ‘comic relief’!

    DISAGREEING disagreeably is definitely a trait of the uneducated.  One may have all the academic titles available and yet remains uneducated.  Such is the fate of the “uneducated” in current topic.

    Can someone create a Face Book acct. for Brenda where we all can show our protest against her kabastusan and abusive ways? It’s time to let her know that people can no longer put up with and are sick of her ugly face and behavior, and show her what a disgrace she is. She craves so much attention so let’s give her the right dosage of it – the very unpleasant kind.

       Someone should post her outburst on YouTube. I’m sure it’ll be a hit. It might even reach the ICC and declare her psychologically incompetent. What a shame!

      Wag mo naman sabihin na kabastusan ang mga sinasabi ni Miriam. Alam mo kahit ako kung puedi lang magsisigaw sa mga hipokrito na mga politkung yon magsisigaw ako palagi sa maga ginagawa nila araw araw lahat corruption ang ginagawa at mayroon pasilang mukhang sabihin sa isang taong, huy ikaw ay corrupt kailangan ka maalis sa puesto mo. Ang totoo wala pa akong nakitang politico sa provincia namin na hindi corrupt na corrupt. Hindi ibig sabihin a kumo hindi sila pa napatunayan sa husgado sila kurakot gunit nakikita ko naman na pagnasa puesto na sila at pagkatapos ng kanilang term mga milyonaryo na sila at lahat ng membro ng kanilang pamilya ay tag iisa na ng mamahalin sasakyan at nagtatayoan ng mga magagarang mga bahay. Kung kagaya lang ako ni Mirriam bakit hindi ko sasabin ang totoo sa in proper time and in proper place kagaya sa impeachment court na alam naman natin na ang mga 188 congressmen na yan ay mga kurakot kasama na yong mga senator-judges. Hindi ba si Jesucristo nagsisigaw at nagtatapon ng kahit ano upoan, lamisa at iba pa ng gawing market place ang lugar ng kanyan ama o holy place. Sinabi ba natin na basto si Jesus?

        hindi pa kasi nahuhuli yang mga korap na sinasabi mo kaya maghintay lang tayo dahil ituituloy ni Pnoy ang pag-sugpo sa kanila. Isa-isa lang dahil mahina ang kalaban. Based sa mga ebidensya na lumabas eh korap si Corona di ba? bakit inbswelto sya ni Miriam? dahil close sila?  dahil marami pang ibang korap na hindi naman pina-alis sa pwesto na tulad ng sinasabi mo dito at hypocrisy ang nangyari? kung ganyan ang logic mo eh wala ng mahuhuling korap at patuloy tayong maghihirap dahil magpapatuloy ang korapsyon.

        Kung gusto ni Miriam na sugpuin ang korapsyon e di sana kahit best friend sila ni Corona eh dapat bumoto sya ng ‘guilty’ dahil ang loyalty ay dapat sa taong bayan at hindi sa ibang dahilan.

        at ang sinasabi kong kabastusan ni Miriam ay hindi yung pag-tuligsa nya sa korap kundi yung ugali nya na mang-verbal abuse ng mga kaharap nya na pakiramdam nya lagi ay sya na ang pinakamagaling na nilalang sa balat ng lupa at lahat ng lumalabas sa bunganga nya ay tama at walang pwedeng mag-disagree. ang pangit na nga ng itsura nya ang pangit pa ng way nya magsalita at ang pangit pa ng diction at accent nya. no offense. ;] at isa pa huwag mo naman banggitin ang name ni Jesus at isama in the same sentence with Miriam’s name in it dahil baka tamaan ka ng kidlat because that is blasphemy. no offense.
        Good luck!

        It was a blessing that the guilty votes were not tainted with the votes of Mirriam, Bong2 and Joker.

        wag mong ikumpara ang Panginoong Hesukristo sa bastos at walang modo na c miriam hane, kilabutan ka naman.

      Gusto mong ban sa FB dahil sa inappropriate content? LOL

  • abudahbi

    The trouble with Defensor is she might have the brains but she really behaves and thinks like a lunatic. The put-on accent, the face-only-her-mother-would-love, the talsik-laway lectures and terminology rich but senseless speeches are just too much to watch. All these years paano ito tiniiis ng mga kasama niya sa trabaho. Hasn’t anyone ever told her the truth about how people really see her? Has anyone showed her a video of her? Rude, unprofessional, CONDESCENDING. Pranka, yes, pero sa maling dahilan and paraan. The nerve to be scolding middle aged professionals in public yet she went ballistic when someone showed contempt. Bastos na pangit pa might be too cruel to describe her…but thats how she come across to most of us except to people who have similar personalities as her.

    • cornelonz

      Will somebody bring these comments to her attention so she might consider refining her ways. or get madder to raise her BP to kingdom come.

  • 14nono29

    let miriam be…she is a clown of a mind. the problem is that WE are NEVER entertained…so maid miriam (ayon pa kay mon tulfo), tahimik na lang sana po kayo…

  • jayemdee_412

    Correct! Senator Santiago in her explanation of her vote for not guilty could have criticized the prosecution team for their inept presentation of evidence against the Chief Justice without resorting to vulgar language which belongs to the gutter. Contrast her demeanor with Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile in lecturing both the prosecution and defense panel. She may be the most intelligent human being on earth but it is not an excuse to insult and belittle her fellow human being.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_I4H2WMHPSR6JGHOTMDLUA6QYHU Observer18

      No, Brenda is certainly not the most intelligent (let alone intelligent); with intelligence comes temperance and a good sense of decorum. Instead, when she wants to convey a point, her mouth is literally foaming with words of stupidity and lunacy.

      • jayemdee_412

         I was being sarcastic when I described her the most intelligent human being on earth. Peace!

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_CYE6T5YKGOURS6CRDB3CKETBQU Jobert Robin

      Sana, may reporter na magtanung kay Enrile ngayon na tapos na ang impeachment.  Ano po kaya ang nasa sisip ni Enrile when Lola Brenda, on many occasions, ay parang baliw na nagtatalak sa harap. Maganda po malaman ang nasa sagot ni JPE sa tanung na ito….

    Majority of the public does not take Senator Santiago seriously anymore. Most especially her colleagues in the senate. They would not censure her rantings and just see it as entertainment. The public sees her for what she is. Just an insecure, hungry for attention, insensitive, grandstanding  and insensible public figure.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_CYE6T5YKGOURS6CRDB3CKETBQU Jobert Robin

      tama ka po. in fact when Lola Miriam was ranting, the senators just ignored him, and they were conversing, yong iba yong swivel chair nila nakatalikod pa at nagpulong-pulong sila, without even bothering to listen to her…ang tanung ko lang po kay Miriam, kung panoorin kaya niya ulit itong asal niya sa tv, hindi po kaya siya nahihiya?

    • Jerry_SeinfeId

      Pampaligaya ng publiko si Miriam Santiago, kapag siya na ang nagsasalita nakikinig ako baka sakaling meron na naman akong matutunan na salitang kalye. Ngyahaha…

  • dconsultant

    And I thought the Lady Gaga show was at the SM mall of Asia. There was one at the Senate too.

  • Jerry_SeinfeId

    Eh bungangera nga ang futaching na Miriam Santiago, king-nang ito dapat dito turnuhin sa buldet. Minumura ang ibang tao eh pasang awa lang naman pala nung nag Bar Exam ang hitad. Akala mo kung sino matalino ang lintikikay na sorgo ang mukha. Asa ka pang imbitahin ka ni Loren ”ganda lang ang puhunan” Legarda.

  • kumar01

    yng expose nya d kabastusan iho, ang kabastusan eh yung pangaralan mo at sigawan ang isang tao ng dahil lang gusto mo syang pagsabihan, kaw ba gusto mong laging naccgawan ng amo mo? ika nga ng isang broadcaster eh “tamanga adhikain sa maling pamamaraan”, peace……
