Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson has recently come to Jessica Soho’s defense.
It can be recalled that Bongbong Marcos declined the invitation for the multi-awarded journalist's "The Jessica Soho Presidential Interviews" and his camp stated that they believe Soho is biased against the Marcoses.
Soho, on the other hand, was able to interview Lacson, Sen. Manny Pacquiao, Manila City Mayor Isko Moreno and Vice President Leni Robredo.
On his Twitter page, Lacson denounced BBM camp’s remark against Soho as he was asked “very hostile questions” during the news anchor’s interview with him.

“Jessica Soho, biased? I was asked very hostile questions like my role during martial law, why I evaded arrest in 2010, my co-authorhip and sponsorship of the Anti-Terror Law, human rights issues and other hard questions,” he wrote.
“I don’t think so. Like any journalist, trabaho niya yun,” Lacson added.
Jessica Soho, or Maria Jessica Aspiras Soho in real life, is a Filipina journalist who has won numerous awards for journalism. She already bagged an award at the prestigious New York Film Festival.
Earlier, Atty. Vic Rodriguez, BBM's chief of staff, stated that the reason why Bongbong Marcos decided not to attend is that they believe that Jessica is "biased against the Marcoses." Arnold Clavio then defended his fellow Kapuso journalist. Arnold shared the alleged response of BBM Media Bureau to the guest coordinator of ‘The Jessica Soho Presidential Interviews’. The response bears BBM’s camp's alleged initial reason why the presidential aspirant declined to be interviewed by Soho.
Amid the issue, Jessica's old clip where she could be seen saying Bea Alonzo’s iconic lines in “Four Sisters and a Wedding" has resurfaced. The clip was taken from the multi-awarded journalist's interview with Bea in July 2021. In the said video, Soho said, “Bakit parang galit ka? Bakit parang kasalanan ko? Kasalanan ko?”
