- Mocha Uson had insulted ABS-CBN and other news groups in the past.
- Despite the tirades, Mocha was still granted a TV appearance by the Kapamilya network.
Mocha Uson is undoubtedly the most controversial blogger in the Philippines. Not unlike President Rodrigo Duterte‘s many supporters, Mocha used her own platform to slam those who critique his administration.
When the President expressed his dismay at media enterprises like ABS-CBN, Mocha was soon hurling insults at the network.

Mocha only used to provide sex advice to her followers. She would also have bedroom sessions with her group, the Mocha Girls. During the 2016 Philippine Presidential Elections, Mocha’s blog began to shift its content towards politics.
Her blog opposed much of the Philippines’ leading newsgroups such as ABS-CBN, GMA Network, Philippine Daily Inquirer and Rappler. She collectively called said publications as “Presstitutes,” a word play mashing ‘press’ and ‘prostitute’ together.
On April 2018, Mocha appeared in ABS-CBN’s The Bottomline hosted by Boy Abunda. It was a mild interview as PRRD had earlier threatened the corporation with non-renewal of its broadcasting license.
Korina Sanchez recently interviewed Mocha for Rated K. Although Mocha had been a huge critic of Korina’s husband, Mar Roxas, the journalist pointed out that the blogger is actually newsworthy.
During her interview in Rated K, Korina asked Mocha about her celebrity crush. The latter immediately said Coco Martin‘s name. Mocha, then, shared how she already met Coco before he began to rise to the top of the ladder. She revealed that she admired Coco’s attitude as a person.
