'ABS-CBN should have apologized a long time ago' -Panelo




Malacanang heard the apology given by ABS-CBN to President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, and it should have been given a long time ago.

The issue started when ABS-CBN failed to air of then Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte’s political ads during the 2016 Presidential elections.


This was the comment given by Presidential Spokesperson Atty. Salvador Panelo after ABS-CBN President and CEO Carlo Katigbak apologized during a Senate inquiry into issues regarding the network's franchise which Solicitor General Jose Calida wants to revoke.

“I’m glad finally ABS-CBN has admitted its shortcomings to the President. Dapat noon pa nila ginawa (They should have done that a long time ago),” Panelo said in a press briefing.
Atty. Panelo scored ABS-CBN for admitting that they failed to air PHP7 million worth of Duterte's political ads since they could no longer be accommodated.
“Alam niyo na may atraso kayo. May ginawa ba kayo? Yun nga yung tinatawag na hubris (You know you made a mistake. But did you do anything about it. That’s what you call hubris),” he said.

He, however, said it would be up to the President to decide whether or not he would accept ABS-CBN’s apology.
“I do not know. Na kay Presidente ‘yun (It’s the President’s call). It’s personal to him,” he said.
