Wala na ngang Prangkisa, Paano mo Ire-renew? Ret. Journalist Jay Sonza, Binanatan si Cong. Vilma dahil sa ABS-CBN Franchise

Hindi nagustuhan ng retiradong mamamahayag na si Jay Sonza ang giangawang hakbang ni Congresswoman Vilma Santos-Recto para mabigyan ng prangkisa ang ABS-CBN. Sa kaniyang social media post, binanatan ni SOnza si Santos at ipinaliwanag na hindi pwedeng i-renew ang prangkisa ng Kapamilya Network dahil wala nang umiiral na franchise ang istasyon.

“Cong. Vilma Santos,

What renewal are talking about?

There is nothing to renew because the network has no live or existing franchise to begin with.

Ang dami nang bobo sa Kongreso, huwag mo ng idagdag ang sarili mo sa bilang nila.

Tapatin mo ang bayan, Ate Vi, Huwag na tayong magbolahan pa, magkano ba talaga ang dahilan?” sabi ni Sonza.

Magugunita na sa ilalim ng liderato ni former house speaker Alan Peter Cayetano ay ibinasura ng kongreso ang franchise application ng Kapamilya network. Ilan sa mga nakita isyu ng kamara ay ang hindi magandang trato ng ABS-CBN sa ilang empleyado nito, ang tax avoidance scheme, at marami pang iba.

“It is what it is — a denial of a privilege granted by the State because the applicant was seen as undeserving of the grant of a legislative franchise. By no means can this franchise application be related to press freedom. If it were so, then all applicants for legislative franchises covering mass media could simply claim such freedom and force the hand of this Committee each time… It is what it is — a denial of a privilege granted by the State because the applicant was seen as undeserving of the grant of a legislative franchise. By no means can this franchise application be related to press freedom. If it were so, then all applicants for legislative franchises covering mass media could simply claim such freedom and force the hand of this Committee each time… Such a scenario is totally inconsistent with the nature of legislative franchises as a mere privilege and never a matter of right. Wherefore, in view of the foregoing, the technical working group respectfully recommends the DENIAL of the franchise application of ABS CBN Corporation,” sabi sa resolusyon ng Technical Working Group’s (TWG) Committee ng kongreso.
