Veteran news anchor Mike Enriquez has drawn laughter and criticisms from netizens during the live coverage of GMA News on the Pope's arrival.

Enriquez joined a powerhouse team composed of Kapuso network news pillars Mel Tiangco, Jessica Soho, Arnold Clavio and Vicky Morales on Thursday's special program "Ang People’s Pope sa Pilipinas" which aired on GMA-7 and GMA News TV.
Twitter users called him "annoying" and "unprofessional." Here are some of the comments:
