Updated @ 10:33 p.m., Feb. 24, 2020 MANILA, Philippines — More senators are now convinced that, if ABS-CBN indeed committed violations, it does not deserve “capital punishment,” Sen. Grace Poe said Monday. ADVERTISEMENT Emerging from the Senate public services committee hearing on the franchise of the media giant, Poe said senators who were first apprehensive […]

[We have heard from the NTC that some violations do not require automatic cancellation. It doesn’t require outright capital punishment. Outright execution is not the judgment required here.]“As such, franchise holders are accountable first and foremost to Congress as the representatives of the people. Ang lahat ng may hawak ng prangkisa ay nananatili sa aming gabay at patnubay,” she added.

During the hearing, Senate President Pro Tempore Ralph Recto also pointed out that the network should not be shut down and should only be penalized if it indeed committed any violations of the terms of its franchise.The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) and the NTC cleared ABS-CBN of any violations when asked during the hearing.

[We’re going to kill it. Death penalty. But then it turns out there’s no death penalty. Why should shut it down when there’s no such penalty? Is it commensurate? Assuming that there will be a penalty, so let’s just impose a fine. Why do we need to shut it down?]

READ: maintained, however, that it did not violate any law governing its franchise and that it had secured all necessary approvals for its business operations.

CMRamosINQ Let SC decides on QuoWarranto YesToABSCBNShutDown EDSAnotherJoke CMRamosINQ Obviously your sentiments are for the oligarchs instead of the public abused for many years CMRamosINQ Duterte from the start wanted to execute a tokhang to ABS-CBN. Kaunting violation patay ka. CMRamosINQ So who will decide? Grace Poe? Please be decent enough to stay away from this issue because your mom has a show with ABiaS. Thats a plain CONFLICT OF INTEREST. Huwag tunog trapo.

CMRamosINQ Last time I checked, the QW petition is now at SC. Now, what gives? CMRamosINQ Me bayag Naman Kaya sila? O baka press release lang. CMRamosINQ to the congress and senate, ano ba kasi tlaga ang nasa law kapag may ganitong offense? baka naman kasi bigla mag iiba ng law para makalusot lng ang mga mayayaman.

CMRamosINQ Ordinaryong tao, ganyan din ang pananaw. Lalong lumilinaw na si Duterte ang nagplano. Siguradong may kausap nang Chinese buyer sa halagang magkano kaya? Daanin man sa troll parang Marawi funds lng na pilit tinatago. CMRamosINQ Power Tripping case

Senators probe ABS-CBN franchise as Calida moves for network’s shutdownHighly anticipated? 🤣 such a joke... YesToABSCBNShutDown Good luck po! And may all the odds be ever in your favor. Praying for you all 🙏

CMRamosINQ Too bad because that is not for the senators to decide. Just fight it out in SC and stop your pretentious one sided acts, as if your moves are for neutrality and not for ABSCBN benefit. CMRamosINQ NOW WE ARE CONVINCED THAT THE GOVERNMENT IS OF, BY, AND FOR THE PEOPLE....NOT WITH ONE CRAZY PERSON ALONE.

CMRamosINQ i can think of some politicians who actually deserve capital punishment, starting with that guy in Malacanang 🤬 CMRamosINQ Now we’re talking! CMRamosINQ Wow! I am impressed that are still government officials that can think independently and not be forced to bow before the palace throne.

CMRamosINQ Renewal poe not Revocation!

Pacquiao: House, Senate should act on ABS-CBN franchise renewal without delayBoxing icon Senator Emmanuel D. Pacquiao said yesterday that the Senate and the House of Representatives should set aside their differences and act on the renewal or non-renewal of the ABS-CBN network franchise without any further delay. Boxing ka muna Ang MPBL ni Manny sa ABSCBN Sports ayaw nya ma shut down. Personal interest. 😏😏😏

Bong Go: It's those anti-Duterte ads on ABS-CBN that got the boss goatPresident Rodrigo Duterte is 'not vindictive,' Senator Bong Go told a Senate hearing on the ABSCBNFranchise, but he recited a litany of hurts caused by the political ads that the media giant aired – and did not air – during PHVote 2016. duterte pa rin? ano ka na bongago? senador ka na duterte pa rin ang nasa bunganga mo? personalan na lang talaga sa gobyerno ni pdutz. kasihudang mawalan ng trabaho ang mga tao, masunod lang ang kapritso ng poon ng davao. Bakit sa gma di siya galit? E turns out psrehas lang naman nag air? Can I ask a question? Why was Sen Bong Go the one who recited the list of the president's issues with ABSCBN? Is he the new spokesman of the president?

ABS-CBN executives appear before SenateSir, your last minute apology is four years late. If the network's franchise wasn't expiring, would you have apologized?

ABS-CBN: Gag order violates press freedom, deprives public vital source of informationJusko! Gag order is a legal exercise! Hindi yan pag silence, yan ay upang maiwasan ang mga sabi-sabi na makakaapekto sa pagreresolba ng problema sa loob ng korte. Nasa Korte na ang kaso, wag na pairalin ang tsismis dahil hindi yun nakakatulong! Pweh!
