Cebu Rep. Eduardo Gullas Sr. on Sunday joined calls for the passage of the 11 pending bills renewing ABS-CBN Corp.’s franchise by another 25 years.

“We are all for the extension of the network’s legislative franchise,” said Gullas, former Cebu provincial governor.

“We regard mass media in general and TV networks in particular as the State’s indispensable ally not only in the prompt dissemination of information to the public, but also in promoting transparency and accountability in government,” Gullas said.

“If Congress is able to grant franchises to startup companies, surely we can extend the franchises of those entities that have been operating over long periods and have proven themselves to be worthy,” Gullas pointed out.

The Gullas family founded The Freeman, Cebu’s first daily newspaper, in 1919.

The motto of the newspaper is, “The fair and fearless.”
