Mayor Isko Moreno’s camp questions SMNI News’ viewership

Banayo said Moreno had a trip to Samar that made him skip the event. Even if Moreno is available, Banayo would still advise Moreno not to attend.

After Mayor Isko Moreno’s refused to appear on the debate stage, his campaign manager questioned the viewership of SMNI News.

Lito Banayo sat down with One News’ The Chiefs on Tuesday, February 15, and claimed that SMNI isn’t ‘considered’ a major news channel.

Kingdom of Jesus Christ church founder Pastor Apollo Quiboloy owns SMNI and endorsed Bongbong Marcos for president.

“Meron bang nanonood ng SMNI to begin with?” he asked.

“To begin with, how many subscribe to SMNI?”

Senators Panfilo Lacson and Manny Pacquiao, and Vice President Leni Robredo also declined to debate on the SMNI platform.

Marcos, who is by far the favorite to win the top position in the country, was the only leading presidential candidate who took on questions from a panel.

He shared the stage with former Defense Secretary Norberto Gonzales, labor leader Leody De Guzman and former Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella.

Banayo said Moreno had a trip to Samar that made him skip the event. Even if Moreno is available, Banayo would still advise Moreno not to attend.

“I mean, I’m sorry, I have to say this magalit na ‘yung magagalit sa akin dun sa SMNI but that is the reality.”

It seems Marcos already has SMNI in his pockets.
