“ABS-CBN News does not spread disinformation.”
Ganito ang naging pahayag ng ABS-CBN matapos mag-viral ang screenshot ng social media post ng broadcast journalist na si Ricky Velaco, kung saan makkikita ang watawat ng Pilipinas na ginamit na tablecloth sa isang handaan. Sa naturang post, pinalalabas ni Velasco na ito ay sa Southeast Asian (SEA) Games.
Paliwanag ng media giant, hindi na nila reporter si Velasco at hindi dumaan sa kanilang approval process ang social media post nito.
“ABS-CBN News did not vet or approve the social media post made by former DZMM reporter Ricky Velasco.
Mr. Velasco retired from the network in 2015. His post showed a Philippine flag purportedly used as tablecloth during a meal for SEA Games athletes.
ABS-CBN News has social media guidelines and gatekeeping layers to prevent erroneous and misleading posts.
Mr. Velasco’s post did not go through any of these processes.” sabi ng ABS-CBN.
Narito po ang komento ng ilang personalidad laban sa ABS-CBN.
“Ricky G. Velasco, itinakwil ka na pala ng ABS-CBN pero bakit ang twitter handle mo eh @RADYOPATROL39 pa din? At journalist ka pero bakit napaka iresponsable mo, na kailangan pa maglabas ng statement ang ABS CBN para mag hugas kamay sa kabalbalan mo? banat ni Mark Lopez, radio host.
“ABS CBN has been leading in fake news and biased editorializing, including its talents and personnel. This time, they are targeting Alan Cayetano, the Speaker of the House where their franchise is pending. While I understand politics and their preference, unfortunately, affected yung reputation ng bansa. Disapprove their franchise once and for all.” buwelta naman ni Atty. Darwin Cañete, fiscal.
