A few minutes ago: faculty members pry out details from 2017 University of the Philippines Gawad Plaridel awardee Tina Monzon-Palma about the coup d’etat coverage …

and the fast and famous hard question she pulled on Canadian PM Trudeau during the 2015 APEC media briefing …  when most were star-struck with the boyish Trudeau and were throwing fluff questions at him,  Tina quizzed him on the truckloads of garbage left by a Canadian company in the Philippines : 

shining moments in Philippine journalism and international news coverage (photo courtesy of U.P. CMC Journ Dept Chair Rachel Khan, center … standing beside someone in blue Lumad threads): Many thanks, Ricci! (The Gawad Plaridel is the highest lifetime achievement  award given annually by the University of the Philippines to distinguished media practitioners)
