Garry Valenciano's Wife Angeli Burns Maria Ressa and ABS-CBN for Spreading Fake News


The wife of Gary Valenciano, Angeli Pangilinan Valenciano took to Twitter and burned down Maria Ressa and other members of the mainstream media particularly Rappler and ABS-CBN for spreading fake news about her husband who is now suffering from an illness.



According to Angeli Valenciano, Maria Ressa should not report the misleading information provided first by ABS-CBN without consulting their family about the matters regarding the illness of Gary V.

Angeli Pangilinan Valenciano was quoted as saying "You didn't interview Gary or any family member so why are you posting this @mariaressa #fakenews." The statement of Angeli was her response to the news report posted by Rappler that says "Gary Valenciano tells Korina Sanchez he also has kidney cancer #EntertainmentNews rappler.com/entertaintment" with a link to article posted by Rappler.



The son of Gary Valenciano, Paolo Valenciano also retweeted his mother's tweet by correcting the bad grammar presented by Rappler, correcting has cancer to HAD cancer.

On Facebook Angeli Pangilinan Valenciano corrected the accusations made by Jerms Estrada who called Maria Ressa as Despicable by explaining her side and defending Maria Ressa and keeps the blame on the junior reporter of ABS-CBN who was allegedly the source of the fake news about Gary Valenciano.

According to Angeli, Maria Ressa is her dear friend and he was upset when somebody posted on Facebook some accusations against Maria Ressa because for her, Ressa has never shown a despicable side as she has always been a friend but the post upset her family as they did not interview them.

The main reasons why there was panic was due to the fact tha a junior reporter of ABS-CBN made a mistake and used the word HAS when it should have been HAD and so chaos and panic happened. The careless act of the ABS-CBN reporter was then picked up by Rappler, Pep, Myx, Inquirer and other sites. It shows you that the news departments of many media agencies today don't do consistent due diligence and just life "news" from other agencies without verification or thorough research.



Here's the Complete Statement of Angeli Pangilinan Valenciano on Facebook:

Jerms! Maria is a dear friend and I was so upset when they posted this. For me though, she has never shown a despicable side as she has always been a friend but the post upset my family as they did not interview us. A junior reporter of Abscbn made a mistake and used the word HAS when it should have been HAD and so chaos and panic happened. Friends, fans and family members were crying. We kept silent about the second surgery of Gary so as not to stress people because a coronary bypass then cancer of the kidney and double back-to-back surgeries would surely sadden millions who love my husband and our family.

The careless act of this reporter was then picked up by Rappler, Pep, Myx, Inquirer and other sites. It shows you that the news departments of many media agencies today don’t do consistent due diligence and just lift “news” from other agencies without verification or thorough research. Maria and I communicated about this because we are solid friends. I posted this because their careless act caused so much pain and stress to so many especially to my family. I eventually deleted my tweets because I know I was angry when I posted them. Abscbn may have been the source of the error but the other sites should have called us to verify first.



Abscbn News head Ging Reyes called me from abroad to apologize and had their post immediately corrected. Korina likewise went out of her way to correct the error of her staff. Rappler, Inquirer and Pep likewise corrected their mistake. Thanks for fighting for Gary and our family ... bench boy forever ! I must defend Maria Ressa in this case though, because she has never shown a despicable side to me.

I was angry and called her out because this was about my husband’s life and health. They should have called me first instead of blaming Abscbn. Journalism ethics calls for that at the very least. She apologized but didn’t like the term #fakenews. It got sorted out eventually. I forgave all of them but boy the crying and panic it caused was really unbelievable. Kawawa many who cried the whole night !!!! Gary is okay, Jerms and doctors said he is cancer-free.

Let’s continue to pray for my warrior! His heart is good as new and his right kidney wasn’t taken out. Praise God! No need for chemo or radiation! What a living miracle Gary is. All because of God’s grace.  Love love love you, our dearest friend ! A big hug from Manila. - Angeli - Jerms Estradatouille Estrada
