“If they cannot provide fair and balanced news and TV programs then its time for them to stop. “
Basically, this is the sentiment of Duterte supporter and blogger Noel Landero Sarifa regarding the issue of ABS-CBN and its franchise renewal which many DDS also shares.
Sarifa remarked that this is the first time he will talk about the ABS-CBN franchise issue apparently to tell the artists and fanatics of the network to stop blaming President Duterte on the matter but rather to ask the management as to why they let this happen.
Sarifa argued that the blame should fall squarely on the owners, the management for failing to provide fair and balanced news reporting. Instead, they antagonized not just the President but his supporters for sensationalizing and spreading fake news against the Duterte administration.
Sarifa went on to enumerate what he believed to be the sins of ABS-CBN against President Duterte. For example, ABS-CBN sensationalizing news against Duterte, minimal to almost no news about President Duterte’s Administration Achievement etc..
Sarifa said this caused outrage among Duterte supporters during the 2016 election campaign and until now the network remain biased against the Duterte administration.
Sarifa remarked that if he was asked if ABS-CBN’s franchise deserves renewal? He answered with an emphatic “NO.” He asked why would we allow them to keep fooling the public? If they cannot provide fair and balanced news and TV programs then its time for them to stop.
Sarifa ended the post with a strong message to ABS-CBN and that is to refrain from using their talents (artists and employees) to pressure the government to give them new legislative franchise but to deal with this and take responsibility of their actions.
Here are the screenshots of articles and links from ABS-CBN which Sarifa and Duterte supporters were fake news or slanted to put the Duterte administration in bad light.

First time I am going to talk about ABS-CBN Franchise issue.
Well, the artist and fanatics, should never blame President Duterte on this matter, they need to ask the management as to why they let this happen. Here are some recall of my posts, since way back 2016, these are screenshots and there are links you may refer to(Some already deleted). I do not have any information about the ads that is supposed to be aired by the network but refused to do so, as the President said it was not aired, I believe the President is telling the truth, there is no statement from ABS-CBN denying the claim.
Here are some points ABS-CBN needs to answer.
– How ABS-CBN sensationalize news against Duterte
– No coverage on Duterte’s Rally if there is, they do not show how huge the crowd is ( thanks to cinemotion, netizens for providing us photos and videos) if there is the numbers are roughly way lower than the reality. Duterte has a very minimal air time in the news last 2016 campaign, unlike the other candidates, if it is something bad about Duterte, that’s the time they provide more air time.
– Publishing fake news with no public apology or admission of the fault.
– Allow airing of Children being used against Duterte
– Minimal to almost no news about President Duterte’s Administration Achievement.
(There should be more but I stopped watching their news, and if not for my FB news feed I will not get a glimpse of article/news from ABS CBN)
These cause outrage to Duterte’s supporters, and until now we know how biased the network is. Remember, even anonymous Philippines hacked DZMM website as they can no longer bear all the black propaganda and mudslinging way back 2016? So if I will be asked? Do they deserve a renewal? NO, why would we let them keep on fooling us? If they cannot provide fair and balanced news and TV programs then its time for them to stop.
Wag sanang gamitin ng ABS CBN ang mga artista at empleyado nila, the management should deal with this and take responsibility of their actions.
