ABS-CBN news anchor Ted Failon can’t help himself but be skeptical of Speaker Alan Cayetano’s handling of the temporary franchise for the media giant.

Failon betrayed his disappointment over House Bill 6732, which was supposed to allow ABS-CBN to open up to October while Congress tackled its 25-year franchise renewal, which Cayetano refused to guarantee would pass before Congress adjourned on June 3.

“Yan ang klaro Speaker? Yan ang klaro na hindi pa klaro,” said Failon in a mockign tone while interviewing Cayetano on May 18, or five days sending ABS-CBN supporters a lifeline by railroading the passage of HB 6732 on second reading.

“t’s a roller coaster ride. Kung ikaw po ay nagtatrabaho sa network o umaasa sa news nito o natulungan nito, masyadong mataas po ang mountains at mababa ang valley. Kung ikaw naman po ay pumuprotesta na ayaw, ganoon din. So nagagalit both sides pero ang proseso natin ay we will discuss these issues, we will get a consensus and vote on it,” said Cayetano.

“I wanted to postpone that because there is a national health crisis and we want to be one and help each other. Pero hindi po natin matanggal Ted eh. Halos nagmumurahan na on Facebook, nagtatawagan na ng pangalan. But ang apela ko sa lahat whether pro or anti, let’s discuss it intelligently and let’s try to come up with a solution that’s good for our people,” he added.

Since making a rah-rah speech for the opening of ABS-CBN on May 13, Cayetano admits he was not sure how the House would move forward with some of the majority wanting to focus on 25-year franchise rathe than his stop-gap HB 6732 bill.

Cayetano admitted that even if he was the primary sponsor of HB 6732, there was no guarantee his wishes would be followed by the majority.

“Sobrang politically contentious nito, galit sa akin ang pro, galit din ang anti, hindi ko alam ang nasa kalooban ng bawat isang miyembro.

May mga census kami para maramdaman pero given nga na grabe po ang lawak ng ideas. May gustong 25 years na. May gustong 2 years.

May gustong isang hearing lang tapusin na. So for me, as long as they all agree, fairness, transparency, due process, okay na rin sa akin yun. So just because there’s a majority who signed or it’s the Speaker that sponsored, hindi necessarily ibig sabihin na ‘yan na ang papasa,” he said.

Cayetanosaid time was fast running out for HB 6732. “We only have 2 weeks more after Wednesday (May 20) to pass it, because we have to give the Senate a week and a half (before Congress adjourned on June 3),” said Cayetano.
