Cayetano re ABS-CBN franchise : “What is right is we hear every side, give everyone the opportunity to speak, gather all the facts, and make a fair and an impartial decision"




The ABS-CBN Corporation’s franchise is clearly making an issue in itself as the House Speaker Alan Peter Caytano calls for calm and sobriety among the critics and supporters of the Lopez controlled broadcasting company.

The House Speaker during the congressional hearing of the ABS-CBN franchise addressed his colleagues that their obligations would have been easy “to go with the flow and approve or deny the (network’s) franchise like what the extremists on the opposite camps want us to do.”

“But we cannot do that, because it is wrong,” House Speaker Cayetano said.

“What is right is we hear every side, give everyone the opportunity to speak, gather all the facts, and make a fair and an impartial decision. It is wrong to resort to bullying and making threats and insults. Let us respect each other’s opinion,” he said.
In the congressional hearing he clarified that its not solely for the grant of ABS-CBN’s new franchise.
“They are also about Congress and how we conduct ourselves. And this I will promise – we will listen to the facts as they are presented and weigh the opinions as they are given – but we will not be bullied, threatened, ignored, or manipulated by anyone from doing our duty, from doing what is right,” he said.



The House Speaker repeated his earlier commitment for “a fair, impartial, comprehensive, and thorough examination of all the facts regarding this issue.”
“That commitment has not wavered nor changed despite all the criticism that has been thrown at Congress, and at me personally,” he said.
Cayetano urged ABS-CBN critics and supporters alike not to let anger prevail.

“That is un-Filipino, that is not what responsible citizens do. Let’s debate, let us stand for our principles, but let us also love each other, Cayetano said.
