The broadcaster has "no personal statement" on the matter, his manager Noel Ferrer said.


TV5, meanwhile, defended Bediones from the "attempt to smear his reputation."

"The recent issue involving our news anchor, Paolo Bediones, on social media is a purely personal and private matter in which TV5 has no involvement or desire to intrude," the company said. "We accord our employees and talents all respect that are due them for their privacy and personal action or decision. We disapprove strongly the malicious and wanton publication of the video, an act that clearly violates pertinent cybercrime laws."

Bediones is seen regularly in "Aksyon Tonight" on the Kapatid network. (Sunnex)
