He was only saying what it is.

SAGIP party-list Rep. Rodante Marcoleta during the House of Representatives’ first hearing on the ABS-CBN’s franchise application accused the Lopez controlled corporation of bias in its broadcast coverage during the 2010 and 2016 Presidential national elections.



Marcoleta said the television network showed it favored then-senator Benigno Aquino III when it ran for the presidency in the last 2010 elections.





And it happened again in the 2016, they were biased in favor of senator Grace Poe and then congressman Leni Robredo, the partylist representative claim.

“ABS-CBN has been biased in favor of particular candidates and against particular candidates during the 2010 and 2016 elections, contrary to the terms of its franchise and the Omnibus Election Code. Hindi naman lingid sa kaalaman ng marami kundi man lahat kung papaano naging pro-Noynoy Aquino ang ABS-CBN noong 2010 at pro-Grace Poe at Leni Robredo naman noong 2016,” the lawmaker said.

He also brought up the very much publicized non-airing of the political ads by then Davao Mayor Rodrigo Roa Duterte when he was running for the position of President of the Republic, despite being already paid.



And in connection to that election, ABS-CBN was stopped by a court order in airing an anti-Duterte ad paid by then senator Antonio Trillanes IV.

The Deputy Speaker reasons out that the obvious bias in their broadcasting operations is more than enough to deny its franchise application.

“For those opposing the franchise application, ‘di na dapat payagan ang ABS-CBN ang politika sa bansa,” he said.
