With the current administration and millions of supporters on her side, there really is no stopping Mocha Uson. Her promotion to Philippine Communications Operations Office (PCOO) as assistant secretary last year, despite her reported involvement in propagating fake news thru her self-titled “blog”, was already a downfall for the Philippine media landscape. (People may have already forgotten about her “self-discrimination” statement in a Senate hearing against Senator Bam Aquino, or her blatant and persistent prejudice against the Liberal Party regardless of her position in the state, but not everyone of us.)

Now, the former dancer is set to star with Hollywood actor Stephen Baldwin for a Filipino movie “Kaibigan”, in theme with Duterte’s current war against illegal substances, as, surprise surprise, a reporter slash journalist.
In an interview with GMA News Online, Mocha expounded on her role as a face of the media. She said that though she draws inspiration for respected journalists and reporters in the country, she will “just be [herself] in the movie”.
“Malaki ang respeto ko sa ating mga journalist-reporter dahil ‘pag kino-cover ko si Presidente, nakikita ko po ‘yung hirap nila, maging ‘yung mga camera man na ang bibigat ng dala nila. Nakita ko naman na ‘yung pinagdaanan nila at ako bilang blogger din naman sa social media, I will just be myself in the movie.”
According to the 36-year-old personality, she had no problem asking permission from her superior, PCOO Secretary Martin Andanar, to join the film. Moreover, the work is pro bono.
“Ako naman ay pumayag sapagkat good news ito dahil positibo ang mensahe ng pelikula at uhaw ang mga Pilipino sa good news.
“[This will be an] inspirational movie. Ang movie na ito ay sumesentro sa isang pamilya kung saan napariwara ‘yung anak dahil may problema sa kanilang pamilya, na normal na nangyayari sa bansa natin.”
