Netizens: ‘I Went Beyond My Limits’ Statement on Villamor Interview Deepens Arnold Clavio’s Arrogant Brand

Arnold Clavio, GMA Network news anchor and one of the hosts of the morning show Unang Hirit, issued his stance on his interview with Janet Napoloes’ legal counsel Atty. Alfredo Villamor last November 5 that drew flak from online and offline readers.

Media groups have also slammed the uncouth behavior of Clavio.

First, check the video below:

Here’s the transcript of the very short statement by Clavio uploaded on Youtube:

“Mga Kapuso, sa mga nakapanood po sa naging interview ko nung Martes, ang tanging intensyon po lamang, na tulad po ninyo, ay makakuha ng impormasyon kay Atty. Alfredo Villamor patungkol po sa pagpunta ni Ms. Janet Lim-Napoles sa Senado.

Sa ngayon, siya lamang ang kilala naming natitirang abogado ni Janet Lim-Napoles kaya siya lamang po ang kinausap namin, na umaasang makakuha ng impormasyon tungkol sa nasabing senate hearing.

Sa sidhi kong malaman ang balita, inamin ko po na lumampas ako sa aking limitasyon at humihingi ako ng unawa kung may nasabi man ako na wala sa lugar.”

(To GMA-7 viewers, to all who were able to watch my interview on Tuesday, my only intension, like you are, is to get information from Atty. Alfredo Villamor about Ms. Janet Lim-Napoles’ visit to Senate.

As of now, he is the only remaining Janet Lim-Napoles lawyer, that is why he’s the one we spoke with, in hopes of getting information regarding the same senate hearing.

In my fervent desire to get updates, I admit that I went beyond my limits and I am asking for understanding if I may have said something that was out of place.)

Is this finally an apology from the broadcaster? Here is a roundup of some reactions from netizens:

If the voice of the people will be used to weigh in on the statement of Arnold Clavio in the morning show, Unang Hirit last November 6, he’ll get a failing mark.

This blogger’s take: Read between the lines: “kung may nasabi man ako na wala sa lugar” means Arnold Clavio is not seeking for public apology. It’s not or never an admittance of error committed. Hence, Clavio has not issued an apology. Still, no spanking from his mother network, GMA Network?

To Mr. Clavio and GMA Network, the public deserves your swift action on this.

Filipinos are soft-hearted and can be very forgiving if you are sincere. But never belittle the Filipino people and insult their intelligence, they know and deserve better than your arrogance.

To the advertisers of Unang Hirit and GMA-7, listen to the voice of the people.

  1. Sana di ka na lang nag interview Arnold Clavio dahil wala kaming nakuha sa’yo na kagandahang asal at respeto di lang kay Atty. Villmor kundi pati sa mga nakapanood ng kagaspangan ng ugali mo on a national television. MTRCB,KBP, at iba pang ahensya na may kinalaman sa pamamahayag paki aksyunan lang po ito at tatanawin naming napakalaking utang na loob ang inyong pagmamalasakit sa sangbayanang Pilipino.

  2. eh napaka g**o mo pala Kung titignan mo may mas mataas pang pinag aralan si atty villamor kaysa sa iyo di ka man lang nagpakita ng respeto. Kapal talaga ng mukha mo di nga magkasya sa 46″ ng tv ko…

  3. The thing really speaks for itself. In my opinion, the public should get rid of irresponsible, arrogant and careless journalists like Arnold Clavio. They could poison the public.

  4. Wow! Open your minds people. Arnold already admits his fault. “inamin ko po na lumampas ako sa aking limitasyon at humihingi ako ng unawa kung may nasabi man ako na wala sa lugar”. This statement, I BELEIVE, is good enough for an apology. He do not need to elaborate the wrong thing that he did because all the people who is aware about the issue knows it already. I GUESS, some of us at some point, experienced similar situations like Mr. Clavios’ but some never tried to ask for an apology. I, too admit what he did is not professional enough but he is man enough to ask for an apology and I guess that’s the GOOD trait that we MUST PUT OUR FOCUS on. Also, a black dot on a White paper does not make the paper black. I respect all your opinions, I hope you respect mine.

      1. MALI KA DRE GAMIT KA DIN NG UTAK TULAD NI CLAVIO!
        INTINDIHIN MO TONG MABUTI – – > “kung may nasabi man ako na wala sa lugar”
        MARUNONG KA BA NG TAGALOG? MARAMING NAGKOKOMENT NG NEGATIVE SA STATEMENT NA YAN NI CLAVIO DAHIL NAIINTINDIHAN NILA ANG IBIGSABIHIN PERO KUNG DI MO MA-GETS E SIGURO PAREHAS KAYO NG PUPPET MONG IDOL

  5. di sapat ang public apology ni arnold clavio, at isa pa halatang scripted ang pagsasalita nya, sana naman pagtuunan ng pansin ng mga taga MTRCB ang isyung ito, para din yan sa mga taong bayan na makakapanood at makakarinig sa kanilang programa
