‘Press con lang’: Mocha Uson hits Senate hearing on ABS-CBN franchise renewal; netizens react

In a tweet, Uson belittled the enormity of the Senate hearing into a simple press conference.

Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) deputy administrator Mocha Uson slammed the Senate for holding a “press conference” that discussed the issues surrounding the franchise renewal of ABS-CBN.

On Monday, February 24, the Senate committee on public services headed by Senator Grace Poe opened its first hearing on the franchise of ABS-CBN as the House of Representatives has yet to act on pending bills before it.

At least 12 bills pushing for the franchise renewal of the network have been pending in Congress.

In a tweet, Uson belittled the Senate hearing and likened it to a simple press conference.

“Sana nagpunta nalang ang mga Senador sa ABS-CBN station dahil hindi naman hearing ang naganap kung hindi isang presscon ng ABS-CBN,” said Uson, who is an ardent supporter of President Rodrigo Duterte.

“Ni isang nagrereklamo dating empleyado ng ABS-CBN hindi naimbitahan,” she added.

In another tweet, Uson said the only conclusion drawn from the Senate inquiry was that Senator Grace Poe got ABS-CBN to back her in the 2022 election.

“Take note iilan lang yang sipsip sa ABS-CBN. Madami ang hindi umattend sa moro morong presscon ni GRACE POE para sa ABS-CBN,” Uson wrote.

“At iisang conclusion lang ang nangyari kanina, kasado na ang kampanya n Grace Poe sa 2022. Sayong sayo na ang ABS-CBN,” she added.

A lot of netizens reacted to Uson’s posts, mostly lambasting her for her statements.

Here’s what they said:

“Gorl (short for gorilla), malaking ambag ng ABS sa sweldo mong di ko malaman para saan! Ano ba talaga papel mo? Anak ng p____ naman, naman! Sino bang amo mo? Di ba taxpayers? Kami yun gorl (again, short for gorilla)! Buksan rin kasi isip di puro 2 legs naka-open!”

“Gusto ko lang sabihin na ang mocha ay kulay t*e.”

“Ghorl gawin mo nlng kapaki pakinabang sarili mo ng naaayon sa job description mo… sayang pinapasweldo nmen sayo!!! Tahol ka ng tahol ghorl… kaen k na lang ng t*e… ha ha ha.”

“Kung sipsipan lang pala ang labanan, sure winner ka na dong p*ta ka.”

“Take note, ang mga sipsip ng Duterte admin: mocha uson, bato dela rosa, bong go. 😆”

“2020 na pero uso pa sa mga tulad ng mochangtanga ang salitang sipsip… HINDI nag-progress. #IDIOT”

“Konti lang talaga ang sipsip sa abs-cbn. Mas marami pa rin ang sipsip kay Duterte. At nasa top 5 ka Mocha.”

“Sobrang busy ka yata sa OWWA ghorl? Nakukuha mo talagang bigyan ng matinding atensyon yung hearing. Feeling ko naka KBO ka. 😂😂”

“Marami ka rin naman sinipsip para makaupo ka sa puwesto. 😂”

Both President Rodrigo Duterte and House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano, who were running mates in the 2016 elections, have axes to grind with ABS-CBN.

The President had accused ABS-CBN of prioritizing a “black propaganda” and not airing his paid political ads, while Cayetano alleged that the network gave unfair airtime to other vice presidential candidates during the campaign.

At the Senate inquiry, senators asked resource persons from government agencies, as well as ABS-CBN executives, to set the record straight on allegations against the network.



The ABS-CBN was cleared over issues of taxes, labor conditions, and Philippine Depositary Receipts.
