May kinikilingan! Bong Go asks ABS-CBN: What if natalo si Duterte sa black propaganda niyo?
Senator Bong Go believes President Rodrigo Duterte could have lost the 2016 elections if ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corp.’s “black propaganda” succeeded in bringing him down in the 2016 election.
Go accused ABS-CBN of bias against Duterte for running an anti-Duterte paid for by then vice presidential bet Antonio Trillanes while refusing to run Duterte’s counter-commercial for which ABS-CBN received P2.6 million in payment.
“Remember, in an election campaign, especially in a presidential campaign, there is no tomorrow. Every second matters. Isa lang ang mananalo kaya malaking bagay ang makapag-ere ng mga ads. Napaka-unfair naman kung inere yung sa kalaban mo, alam naman nating black propaganda, inuna pa iyon,” said Go.
“It is unfair to allow a negative ad two to three days before the election and then not approve legitimate ads for then presidential candidate Mayor Duterte. It says so in the Fair Elections Act,” he added.
Go believes ABS-CBN’s dirty tactics would have not come to light if the bets its owners were supporting won in 2016.
“What if natalo siya noong election, dahil sa isang paninirang binayaran ng isang — alam ninyo na sino nagbayad, nakalagay naman sa baba,” said Go.
“Anong kasiguraduhan na di na ito mauulit? Kung nagawa ito sa kandidato na Mayor sa probinsya ng Davao, paano pa kaya sa ordinaryong Pilipino? At sa ordinaryong mamamayan na takot makipag laban?” he added.
