President Duterte accepts ABS-CBN boss' apology

President Rodrigo Duterte has accepted the apology of ABS-CBN president Carlo Katigbak for running an anti-Duterte and while freezing his campaign commercial in the 2016 elections.

“Basta sabi ko, tinatanggap ko na ‘yun. Wala akong kinausap. I never really called anybody about this, even before,” said Duterte in an interview with reporters.
Duterte said he was not interested in taking back the P2.6 million he paid for the campaign ad which ABS-CBN did not air. He suggested that ABS-CBN give the money to charity.

But Duterte insisted that ABS-CBN’s franchise was entirely up to the House. “Fundamentally really ang decision, nasa House ngayon. All of these things must originate from the Lower House,” he said.

Duterte also said he has nothing to do with the quo warranto case filed with the Supreme Court by Solicitor General Jose Calida seeking to void ABS-CBN’s franchise.

When asked if he would sign the franchise renewal if its passed Congress, Duterte said:”I will cross the bridge when I get there. Maybe I will ask the media to help me out, it will be a difficult decision really.”
