Mostly, politicians pay corrupt to be in the news, but not this general. Rappler’s Inside Track says cash is being offered to reporters to simply keep former PNP chief Director General Alan Purisima out of their stories for P5,000 per reporter.

Purisima denied the accusation, but it was later uncovered that he was, in fact, a major player.
