ABS-CBN airing Rep. Dante Marcoleta’s ad proves the network is unbiased

It also shows that people like Marcoleta are aware that no other network can match ABS-CBN’s audience.

ABS-CBN airing Rep. Rodante Marcoleta’s political ad just shows how unbiased the network is.

Marcoleta was one of the most prominent congressmen who opposed granting the network a franchise renewal.

Ever since being off the air, ABS-CBN has lost billions in revenue and was forced to lay off nearly 12,000 employees.

Recently, he caught viewers by surprise when his ad aired on the network.

Some called him shameless, while others praised ABS-CBN for remaining professional despite what he put the network through.

At the end of the day, the network did what it was supposed to and made revenue.

It also shows that people like Marcoleta are aware that no other network can match ABS-CBN’s audience.

Marcoleta was one of the 70 representatives who voted to shut ABS-CBN down.

One of his arguments in denying the franchise renewal was that he felt the network was too “entitled.”

“It’s too late now. Hinihintay ko lang sanang magpakababa sila eh.

“They had that sense of entitlement,” he said last year.

Various government agencies said the network violated nothing yet this wasn’t enough to keep them on air.

“Ako’y nagtataka kung bakit sinisisi kami ni Cong. Mike [Defensor] at tsaka ‘yung ibang kasama namin sa pagbasura ng kanilang prangkisa. Alam mo ang dapat na sisihin nila, ‘yung sarili nila.” Marcoleta said.

“Ang nagpasara ng prangkisa, o nagbasura ng prangkisa, at nagpasara ng ABS-CBN ay ‘yung mga ebidensya na nabanggit, napatunayan sa pagdinig ng Kongreso,” he added.

Most recently, he opposed discussing the franchise renewal once more.

“Ang unang itatanong ko sa mga kasamahan kong magtatangka or kung meron man talagang nag-file na nang bill para bigyan sila ng bagong prangkisa, eto tanong ko: anong gagawin ninyo sa dalawang resolution na…hindi pa nadidinig tungkol sa ABS-CBN? Anong gagawin ninyo sa questionable title na inihain ko bilang resolution na hindi pa nadinig?” he argued.

“Yung ikalawang resolution ko yung tungkol sa paglabag at ang mga ebidensyang inihain ko dun na dapat silang magbayad ng ganung kalaking halaga sa mga paglabag hindi pa rin na-agenda. Hindi ba dapat ito muna ang unahin natin bago natin pagisipan man lang o bago tayo managinip na bigyan natin ng bagong prangkisa ang ABS-CBN?” he added.


Marcoleta is gunning for a Senate seat in next year’s elections.
