Duterte to ABS-CBN Lopezes : Just sell the tv network

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte will not be rethinking his stance regarding the non-renewal of the franchise of ABS-CBN.

During his talk in North Cotabato, he suggested to the ABS-CBN to just be sold as he vowed to give its owners an episode they won't forget.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

The network station has been accused by the President of biased reporting and of "swindling" him for not airing his campaign commercial.

"Your contract is about to expire. You will try to renew it but I don't know what will happen to that," the president said 

"Kung ako sa inyo ipagbili niyo na 'yan. Kasi ang mga Filipino ngayon lang makaganti sa inyong kalokohan (If I were you, I would sell it. It's only now that Filipinos would be able to get back at your wrongdoings). And I will make sure that you will remember this episode of our times forever," he added.

The Chief executive claims that previous Presidents of the country did not act against the network giant because they were afraid of being retaliated upon by ABS-CBN.

The President was quoted upon when he said the network giant did not return his money he paid for his campaign advertisement in 2016, even if such ad was not aired. The President also accuse the network giant as magnifying “garbage” stories being thrown by his critics from the other side of the political fence.
