Kris Aquino Defends PNoy


Kris Aquino on Monday night broke her silence over her brother's criticism of ABS-CBN News anchor Noli "Kabayan" de Castro and other Filipino journalists during the 25th anniversary party of "TV Patrol." 

Kris Aquino, the younger sister of President Benigno "PNoy" Aquino, who happens to be Noli De Castro's co-employee at ABS-CBN, tweet her answer to a twitter user who said that you never attack media back.


Here are the screen captures of the said Twitter conversation:
 
She said she is careful in commenting about the issue. "Prayed before I replied to make sure I don't tweet the wrong thing. My issues are so trivial in comparison to PNoy," Kris said. 
 "PNoy is our president and I do believe the majority of our people feel he's doing a great job. Maybe he just like anybody else," she added.
Kris said on Twitter that her brother has the right to defend himself and express his opinion. Freedom of speech is a 2-way street right? quips Kris Aquino on Twitter.

Her brother on Friday night lashed out at de Castro and Philippine media for alleged bias toward negative news reports. Aquino, in his speech at the 25th anniversary celebration of TV Patrol at the Manila Hotel, said he wants a positive spin in news stories and commentaries from ABS-CBN's flagship primetime news broadcast.

The president specifically vented his ire on de Castro, a veteran TV Patrol anchor and former a vice president of then President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, for allegedly belitting the gains made by his administration with regard to the sorry state of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 1.

Aquino also said he was unhappy over criticisms on TV Patrol regarding the National Bureau of Investigation's recovery of a kidnapped child last June 26. 

"May naitutulong po ba ang mga walang-basehang spekulasyon, lalo na kung lumalabas ka sa telebisyon at sinusubaybayan ng sambayanan? Kung nagbabangkaaan lang tayo sa kanto, hindi problema ang mga walang-basehang patutsada. Pero kung alam mong opinion maker ka, alam mo rin dapat na meron kang responsibilidad. Sana po, sa tuwing sasabihin nating 'magandang gabi, bayan,' ay totoong hinahangad nating maging maganda ang gabi ng bayan," he said.

De Castro has yet to comment on Aquino's statements. Ging Reyes, head of ABS-CBN's News and Current Affairs Division (NCAD), said: "Criticism is not a monopoly of journalists and media practitioners. The President had as much right to free speech as every citizen. Ang aming mga mamahayag ay may editorial independence, o kalayaan sa kanilang pagkalap ng balita at paglalahad ng istorya," Reyes said on TV Patrol Monday. "Ito ang pundasyon ng kredibilidad. Sa mga pagkakataong kinukwestyon ang aming pagiging patas at balanse, mayroon kaming sistema para tugunan ang ganitong reklamo ng manonood," she added.

TAX For Online Traders and Entrepreneurs



Attention: Online traders and entrepreneurs

The Bureau of Internal Revenue will start going after those who fail to issue electronic invoices to customers this year.

Commissioner Kim Jacinto-Henares told reporters that online businesses, such as the following:
  • sulit.com.ph
  • e-bay Philippines
  • alibaba.com
  • ayosdito.ph 
  • multiply.com 
These are just sample businesses that need to be registered with the BIR and should be paying the corresponding taxes.

The tax will cover even those entrepreneurs who use their personal Facebook accounts for business transactions.

"They are all bound by the law to comply with the invoicing requirement. Under the rules, online sellers shall be registered as such to the BIR, and that their electronic invoicing shall likewise be registered either directly to us or a third-party accredited by us", quips BIR Commissioner Kim Jacinto-Henares

The electronic invoicing could be availed of through a third party, but such third-party shall be accredited by the BIR. Meaning, private parties could participate and get the necessary accreditation from BIR.

Citing Section 237 of the National Internal Revenue Code, the BIR chief said the bureau need not issue a revenue regulation to implement the law requiring the issuance of receipts and sales invoices for online transactions as well as penalties for non-compliance.
