TV5 released an official statement regarding the remarks made by Ben, Raffy, and Erwin Tulfo on their public service program T3 last Monday, wherein they threaten couple Raymart Santiago and Claudine Barreto on national television (see related story here)
Here is the official statement sent to us by TV5:
"News5 assures the public and all parties concerned that the statements made by the Tulfo brothers in its program, T3, last May 7, 2012, were unscripted, spontaneous, and do not in any way reflect the stand nor the policy of the network, its management, staff and employees. While we understand the emotions at play during the broadcast, News5 does not and will never condone such behavior. It was not only uncalled for but runs counter to the established Code of Ethics that we all strictly adhere to.Related Stories: MON TULFO, RAYMART AND CLAUDINE BARETTO-SANTIAGO MAKE EVENING NEWS ROUNDS
We are taking necessary actions to deal with this lapse in judgment on the part of the Tulfo brothers and assure the public that we remain committed to objective and impartial journalism."
