"For those who continue to push the freedom of the press card, Congress is not stifling the right of any journalist, host, commentator, talent, or employee of ABS-CBN — or any Filipino for that matter — from criticizing the government," Speaker Cayetano said.
"We simply put an end to the privilege of one family in using a public resource to protect and promote their private interests," he added.
11,000 employees will be rendered jobless, the Speaker of the House said the government wants a  "better and equal opportunities for all" which, to him, will not be possible with an economy controlled by "less than 20 families in a country of 110 million Filipinos."
