Di lang si Duterte ang dinedma! ABS-CBN rejected senator’s campaign ad for fave politikos- report
Three senators couldn’t help but be gleeful over ABS-CBN’s franchise predicament after having bad experience with the country’s biggest network, Abante has reported.
One senator, who refused to be named, shared that ABS-CBN refused to air his ads at the homestretch of the campaign for the senatorial elections even though it had done so months before.
The network’s action led the senator to believe ABS-CBN wanted other candidates to win by airing their ads.
Two other senators said they had bad experiences with ABS-CBN but did not elaborate.
ABS-CBN Chief Executive Officer Gabby Lopez is reportedly in talks with Jesus is Lord founder Bro. Eddie Villanueva to buy ZOE Broadcasting Network Inc. so that the Kapamilya network will be assured of having another channel to use should it fail to renew its franchise by 2020.
Duterte has threatened to block the renewal of ABS-CBN’s franchise over its supposed bias against him.
The President shared more than a few times that ABS-CBN also failed to air his campaign ads even though he paid for them.
