ABS-CBN franchise renewal is a "press freedom issue" - Atom Araullo




Kapuso TV journalist Atom Araullo ay naglabas ng kanyang saloobin hinggil sa nanagyayari ngaun sa ABS-CBN franchise renewal sa Kongreso, aniya ang lahat ng nangyayari ay may kinalaman sa isyu ng malayang pamamahayag.
Matatandaan na nagging bahay ni Atom ang ABS-CBN ng 13 taon bago sya lumipat sa original nyang pinangalingan sa GMA-7 noong Sept. 2017.

Noong July 7, sa unang pagkakataon di nya na napigilan na magsabi ng kanyang reaksyon sa news report ng GMA News na may titulong "NUJP blasts Rep. Defensor over call on ABS-CBN to limit broadcast to non-news shows."

Ang NUJP ay ang National Union of Journalists of the Philippines.

Sa kanyang Tweet sya ay sumang ayon sa opinion ng NUJP na "press freedom issue" ang panggigipit sa Lopez-controlled  ABS-CBN Corporation, base sa pahayag ni Anakalusugan Partylist Representative Mike Defensor. 
"If this isn’t a clear indication that ABS-CBN’s franchise woes is a press freedom issue, I don’t know what is." Tweet ni Atom.

"Let’s refresh Representative Defensor’s memory,” idinagdag pa nya.
Matatandaan may pahayag si Defensor na dapat daw "tanggalin" ang news and public affairs ng ABS-CBN dahil sa "one-sided" reports nito.

"Personal ko 'to. Kung ako, kunyari tanggalin mo muna iyong news and public affairs. 
"Kasi baka ma-influence ang committee, hindi para ma-curtail ang press freedom."
Wala raw problema sa "non-political" shows na umeere sa ABS-CBN. 

"Pabayaan mo iyong shows na non-political.
"Katulad nung reklamo nung isang kasama ko, naka-air na naman sila, tinira si ganito, tumira si ganyan, o one-sided iyong paglabas ng issue.
"Iyong news ang nagiging problem as of now."

NUJP’s statement:
"Thank you, party-list Rep. Mike Defensor for confirming what practically everyone knows but which this government and its minions have vainly tried to deny — that the shutdown of ABS-CBN and the circus that has become of the House hearings into the network's franchise are, indeed, a press freedom issue."  

"It becomes increasingly clear that putting the squeeze on ABS-CBN is aimed at emasculating the media by holding up the network as an example of the fate that could await other outfits that insist on being true to their watchdog role and maintaining their independence." 
Pinanawagan din ng NUJP na suportahan ng taumbayan ang "critical and independent Filipino media" sa ngalan ng demokrasya at karapatang pantao ng bawat Pilipino.
