Poe, former MTRCB head, noted that Uson’s appointment to the agency was the “President’s prerogative.”

“The MTRCB board should be representation of a cross section of society. The board thrives on diversity but with a common goal of promoting intelligent media viewership and providing the right classification to enable parents to properly guide their children’s viewing habits,” she said in a text message when sought for comment.


Uson, a staunch supporter of President Rodrigo Duterte, was appointed to the MTRCB last January 3.

Senate Majority Leader Vicente “Tito” Sotto III, meanwhile, believes that Uson was a “good choice” for the job.
