The hashtag #JessicaSohoInterviews topped the local trends with Filipinos commending Soho for her critical and sharp questions as well as the team’s thorough research for the 3-hour special.

“Jessica Soho and her team set a high standard for future presidential interviews & debates. This is just the beginning so the Filipino people should keep on monitoring and listening ’cause 2022 can MAKE or BREAK us,” wrote Twitter user @richardmz13.

“Jessica Soho is the HR Hiring Manager the Philippines deserves,” tweeted Miss Trans Global 2020 Mela Habijan.

“Tinde ng research team ng #JessicaSohoInterviews!!!! Jessica Soho for Pulitzer Prize in Journalism!!!!” said Richard Bolisay.

"KUDOS Maam Jess! The questions centered on revealing the true character of the candidate. Kaya po mahalaga na mag-pa interview sa mga mamamahayag. Mas mahirap po magpatakbo ng Pilipinas kaysa humarap sa mamamahayag," said ABS-CBN's journalist Karen Davila.

Actor Richard Juan also echoed the sentiment of Davila.

"All I can say is the #JessicaSohoInterviews showed us the true character of all five leading candidates. Yes, all FIVE."

Presidential aspirant and former senator Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos, Jr. declined for the interview claiming Kapuso news pillar is "biased" against the Marcoses. The network released a statement highlighting Soho has consistently been named the most trusted media personality in the Philippines by both local and foreign organizations.

“The questions are tough because the job of the presidency is tough,” GMA Network added.

  1. GMA, Ms. Jessica Balyena Siokoy and ABS-CBN have no credibility among Filipinos here and abroad! Just imagine how many people would still watch mainstream media! Fortunately, President Duterte has enlightened the majority of Filipino how the oligarko and mainstream media are the most "evil" institutions not just in the Philippines but in the entire world with the blessing of the dominant church and its secret organizations, the secret societies.
