DU30 NEWS ► President Rody Duterte Stated that he Block the Renewal Franchise of ABS-CBN!

Business World Online reported that it would also task the network with the responsibility wherein they had to “provide free public service time” to the administration for public announcements and warnings.

On Thursday, April 27, 2017, President Rodrigo Duterte signed Republic Act (RA) No. 10925, in order to renew the franchise of GMA Network for 25 more years. 

On the other hand, the President has blocked the franchise renewal of GMA's rival network, ABS-CBN. 

Rappler reported that Duterte has accused ABS-CBN of "swindling" because it did not show his political advertisements during last year’s presidential campaign.

He said that, even though his own campaign team paid the network, they still chose not to air his ads. 

Duterte said in a statement, “[The franchise] has been there for 25 years. The law said it’s okay, only if you adhere to journalistic standards. What did you do to us?” 

He continued, “Estafa, swindling, not only me but Chiz Escudero, many of us. Son of a bitch, you collected outright then you commit estafa. So I will file a complaint.”

“Congress, no need to renew it. But to operate is something else, so I will point this out, your garbage, then we’ll see,” he added.

ABS-CBN’s franchise will expire on March 30, 2020, according to Philippine Daily Inquirer. 

Duterte stated he would block the network’s franchise renewal because it committed "swindling."
