Initially, Moreno seemed reluctant to answer questions from the media. According to an report, she had said, “Huwag muna ngayon. Darating ang araw na magpapa-interview ako. Hayaan na muna ang bashers (Not now. There will come a time when I will grant an interview. Let’s just ignore the bashers).”

The report noted: “Moreno’s interview on ANC’s Headstart last November 11, created a buzz on social media, with some netizens calling it ‘awkward’ and ‘painful to watch. The sight of supporters at the town market, however, emboldened Moreno in reiterating her qualifications as a public servant.”

“Ako po si Alma Moreno. May pinagdaraanan po. Siguro naman napanood nyo sa TV. Pero lumalaban pa rin. Hindi man ako ganun kagaling magsalita, may puso naman ako sa tao (I am Alma Moreno. I am going through something. I guess you’ve all seen it on TV. But I am still persevering. I may not be good with words, but my heart is for the people),” she declared.
