Doing the wrong thing is the fastest way to earn historic infamy in the country.

Kapamilya broadcaster Korina Sanchez issued the statement ahead of the House of Representatives’ vote on whether or not to grant the franchise bid of ABS-CBN network.

The 25-year legislative franchise of the media giant expired last May. The station has ceased broadcast operations since then although some tv and radio news programs are still aired on social media pages.

Korina, in an Instagram post, appealed to the lawmakers to do what is right instead of worrying about their pork barrel or “palakasan” system.

“To all Congressmen in the Committee voting on this: more than the pork barrel you think you need from the Executive, more than your palakasan system—— hoping you try to think about what is RIGHT and how your names will forever be etched in historic infamy, kasama ba ang mga anak at apo ninyo na dala ang pangalan ninyo, if you decide against what is RIGHT. 💚” she said.

She said the violations allegedly committed by the media network were “imagined.”

“FACTUALLY, WALA PANG NAPAPATUNAYAN NA VIOLATIONS ANG ABSCBN ON EVERYTHING THROWN AT THE NETWORK regarding operations and dues to government and people and employees, since this zarzuela started,” she said.

“This is FACT,” she said.

Korina posted a black and white collage of ABS-CBN news team alongside her message of solidarity.

“We stand behind the ABSCBN News and Current Affairs Group in proving we all stayed within disciplined objectivity. Go, ABSCBN!” she said.
