ABC News Australia takes down Maria Ressa interview after knowing she lied




They realized that what they did was definitely wrong.

The ABC News Australia interview with Rappler founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Maria Ressa went viral for all the wrong reasons – she said that the Lopez controlled ABS-CBN Corporation has 11 million employees and that the government agency – National Telecommunication Commission (NTC) took away from their employment when it issued a cease and desist order that led to the shutting down of the TV network.


A complete fake news and misinformation was said in the interview, which for the foreign audience might have taken it as it is and the damage it has done to the image to President Rodrigo Roa Duterte and eventually to the country.

Fact check is that ABS-CBN is only employing 11,000 and not 11 million as said claimed by Ressa.

NTC did not took the ABS-CBN legislative franchise but it expired, NTC by itself alone cannot take away a franchise, that power solely lies in Congress.
ABC News even before getting wind of what happened, took off the comments section from the said interview.


A few hours after it was posted and published on Youtube, the Australian news agency finally took down the video.

As of presstime, said video of the interview is no longer available on Youtube.

But of course copies of the said interview have been uploaded on other Youtube channels.
