Pres. Duterte to ABS-CBN: ‘I will see to it that you are out’



ABS-CBN channel 2 is in big trouble. It looks payback is coming in their way.
President Rodrigo Roa Duterte just renewed his threat in blocking the franchise renewal of the television giant and Lopez family owned ABS-CBN Channel 2.

Speaking before newly appointed government official in Malacanang, in his speech after giving their oaths, stated that the television giant will not be given any franchise under his watch, once its existing franchise end in March 2020.

“If you are expecting na ma-renew ‘yan (franchise), I am sorry. I will see to it that you are out,” Duterte said.

(If you are expecting that your franchise will be renewed, I am sorry. I will see to it that you are out.)

The Chief Executive in numerous speaking engagement has said that he will not renew the franchise of ABS-CBN for the reason of the non-airing of his election advertisement when he was still running for the position of President in 2016, and the alleged biased reporting of the station against Duterte.
As per law, television and radio are required to seek Congressional franchises, pursuant to Republic Act No.3846.
