Duterte, the only President who made oligarchs kneel before him instead of the other way around

The nephew of bilyonaryo Gabby Lopez went on television to admit ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corp.’s mistakes and express his readiness to correct his company’s faults.

Imagine if President Duterte never went public about these perennial abuses that the TV network practices.
In a message broadcast over TV Patrol, ABS-CBN president and CEO Carlo Lopez Katigbak said: “Kami po ay hindi perpekto. Nagkakamali din po handa po naming itama ang anumang pagkukulang para sa lalo pang ikabubuti ng aming serbsiyo sa Pilipino.”

Katigbak, however, did not specify ABS-CBN’s transgressions. President Rodrigo Duterte has accused ABS-CBN of refusing to air his campaign ad despite taking his payment in the 2016 campaign.

Katigbak also reaffirmed ABS-CBN’s respect for Duterte.

“Ginagalang namin ang Pangulo. Kinikilala namin ang otoridad ng Kongreso, ng Senado at ang Kapangyarihan ng batas. Higit sa lahat, nirerespeto po namin ang saloobin ng bawat Pilipino,” said Katigbak.

Duterte pushes Lopezes to the brink.

Katigbak conceded that the fate of ABS-CBN’s franchise, which will expire on 30 March 2020, was entirely in the hands of Congress and that he was “praying” for a positve outcome.

“Nagtitiwala po kami sa sinabi ninyo na mabibigyan tayo ng pagkakataon na ibahagi ang ating kwento at para sagutin ang mga katanungan ng mgamamamayan. Dinarasal namin na makita ninyo ang mga kabutihang naidulot ng ABS-CBN sa bawat pamilyang Pilipino,” he said.

“Wala po kaming nakikitang dahilan para hindi magtuloy ang paglilingkod ng ating ABS-CBN.Gayun pa man, kami ay handang sumunod sa anumang proseso na dapatpagdaanan ayon sa batas,” he added.
