Network war’s alive! Poe: Tito Sotto, Bong Revilla snub of ABS-CBN hearing may be due to ‘Kapuso’ ties
The so called war between ABS-CBN and GMA Network remains fierce even if the beleaguered Kapamilya network is facing an uphill climb in its franchise renewal bid.
Senator Grace Poe said Wednesday (February 26) that Senate President Vicente Tito” Sotto III and Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla might have skipped the hearing on ABS-CBN’s franchise because they’re both talents of GMA Network.
Poe chairs the Senate public services committee which conducted the hearing on February 24.
“Maybe because the Senate President works for GMA. He is a talent of GMA. Maybe. I really don’t know why he wasn’t there,” the senator said of Sotto’s absence in an interview on ANC’s “Headstart.”
Poe said Revilla might have also skipped the hearing since he is “a talent of GMA.”
The senator, however, said it was also possible that Sotto and Revilla chose to snub the hearing since there was no session on Monday and it was a holiday on Tuesday, the 34th anniversary of People Power Revolution.
