Rep. Marcoleta Expose ABS-CBN’s Alleged Franchise Violations & Why They Should Not Be Renewed

1 min read
Party-list Rep. Rodante Marcoleta (SAGIP) made headlines on social and mainstream media for his explosive expose against ABS-CBN’s alleged failures to comply with their franchise and the reasons why they should not be renewed.

During the Committee on Legislative Franchises Joint Hearing, Rep. Marcoleta started his long argument against granting ABS-CBN a new franchise by playing Kim Chiu’s viral “Bawal Lumabas” video.

After the video of Kim Chiu, Deputy Speaker Marcoleta cited a Bible verse (John8:32) and then provide specific references to back up his allegations and expose against the media giant.

Rep. Marcoleta revealed that ABS-CBN has been operating more than 50 years and that is clearly against the law, even if the supporters of ABS-CBN will cite a gap during the Martial Law years of the Kapamilya Channel’s operations.

Watch the Video of Rep. Marcoleta Burning Down ABS-CBN:

Deputy Speaker Rodante Marcoleta accused ABS-CBN of being politically biased and partisan towards certain political candidates during the 2010 and 2016 presidential elections.

The emotional appeal or “PAAWA EFFECT and DRAMA DRAMA” strategy of ABS-CBN did not worked well during the hearing because of the expose and prounouncement released by Deputy Speaker Marcoleta.

The House panels on good governance and accountability and legislative franchises are tackling the 11 bills seeking to renew the ABS-CBN’s franchise, which expired last May 4.

The network has been off the air since May 5 after the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) issued a cease and desist order against it due to the lack of a congressional franchise.
