Veteran broadcaster applauds Rep. Marcoleta for not bowing down to ABS-CBN

Here's what the veteran broadcaster Jay Sonza has to say about the spectacle at the ABS-CBN Franchise Hearing at the Congress yesterday.

The mark of a seasoned legislator and debater was best manifested by Rep. Rodante Marcoleta.

Cool, calm, collected, respectful yet booming with an authoritative baritone voice, expressing his arguments dispassionately.

He did his opening salvo with short clip from the network's prized ambush me starlet foolish rant and a 3-liner rebuttal to a well manicured presentation of the Lopez's, spiced by a well produced but misplaced AVP, by simply stating :(a) you did not comply, (b) you broke the laws (c) you don't deserve a franchise at all.

Mr. Marcoleta then essayed the historical facts and data that led to the demise of an overextended grantee of special privileges by Congress.

The Deputy Speaker punctuated his opening argument with a litanny of violations, infractions, infirmities and how the owners molested and raped our Constitution, the labor law books, the corporate and tax codes, the securities and special economic zone laws, and the very foundation of the network existence - its very own franchise law.

Then, as should and a must for a seasoned debater, Broadcaster Marcoleta, masterfully rested his case by a playback audio-video of a fagot, masquerading as noontime television program presenter, poking fun at an Evangelist, a man of God and boastfully challenging him to put a stop to the network's top prime time earner.

How artful, but objective can Kapatid na Dante be by featuring Evangelist ACQ's "thy will be done message" in his closing argument.

He laid it as it is, sans Alan's biblical quote overload, minus the theatrical voice of disc jockey Peter Rabbit, but with firmness that is, his own persona, he ended by saying...

The network does not deserve to be accorded any special privelege by the State.
