Solon calls ABS-CBN, in the ‘service of yellows’

SAGIP Party-list Rep. and Deputy Speaker Rodante Marcoleta had the balls to say it out loud when everyone else is having second thoughts about it.

Marcoleta slammed the Lopez controlled ABS-CBN Corporation for allegedly exhibiting bias in favor of former President Benigno “Noynoy” Aquino III, Vice President Maria Leonor “Leni” Robredo and Senator Grace Poe when they ran for the presidency in the previous elections.

He said the television giant has been operating its broadcast obligations showing bias instead of fair and objective broadcasting.

“ABS CBN has been biased and partisan in favor of particular candidates and against certain candidates during the 2010, and 2016 presidential candidates, contrary to the terms of its franchise and in violation of the omnibus election code.”
“Hindi naman lingid sa kaalaman ng marami, kung hindi man lahat, kung paano naging pro-Noynoy Aquino ang ABS-CBN nung 2010 at pro-Grace Poe at pro-Leni Robredo naman nung 2016,” Marcoleta, said.

The House leadership requested Marcoleta to speak in behalf of those against the ABS-CBN franchise application.

Marcoleta cites the non- airing of political ads of then Mayor Rodrigo Duterte despite being already paid for.

He said the Lopez controlled ABS-CBN Corporation should not get a new franchise to broadcast so it can be stopped from meddling in politics, adding in Filipino, “it’s time the people choose their leaders and not those chosen by ABS-CBN.”

“You are a broadcasting company, not a political kingmaker, either you play ball or you play fair.” He also urged the network to answer the allegations against it, instead of resorting to “emotional appeal.” Marcoleta said.

Also he reasons out that the Lopez controlled corporation violated its own franchise by offering multiple channels in one franchise to the public through its TV Plus boxes, without permission from Congress or the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC).

It has also been accused of violating its franchise by engaging in tax avoidance.
