Mag-abogado ka na lang! Calida challenges ABS-CBN-reporter to court face-off
Abogado turned ABS-CBN TV reporter Mike Navallo has gotten deep into the skin of Solicitor General Jose Calida.
Shortly after filing a quo warranto petition asking the Supreme Court to revoke ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corp.’s franchise, Calida told a Navallo a piece of his mind.
“Palagi mo akong binabanatan ah, abogado ka rin pala eh…Mag-practice ka na lang, magkita tayo sa court,” said Calida after meeting Navallo among a pack of reporters interviewing him at Padre Faura.
Navallo, however, was unfazed and stressed that he was just doing his job. Calida asked if Navallo was from Cagayan de Oro but Navallo corrected him and said he was from Surigao.
Calida told Navallo that he too was from Mindanao but did not elaborate on what he wanted to say.

passionately to frighten Philippine media into submission. Your
mandate is to work for our people, not to carry out the frivolous
whims of Duterte. https://t.co/OKdgOlKr4d
