(2019)Duterte to ABSCBN: Sorry Don't Expect Franchise!Next year,you're out! Just sell the network!

The Burial of Marcos in Libingan ng Mga Bayani with the help of Duterte did not ring a bell or send an alarm on Marcos Foe the Lopez Family,owner of the ABSCBN until Duterte himself declared his anger and hatred towards the ABSCBN network he warned to shutdown. This was recorded by many media coverage as compiled in this article.

Duterte to ABS-CBN: Sorry, don't expect franchise renewal

‘I will see to it that you're out,' says President Rodrigo Duterte, claiming he is still angry at ABS-CBN for supposedly not airing his political ads in 2016


The Philippines’ biggest television network will lose its franchise next year, vowed President Rodrigo Duterte in a fresh rant against “oligarchs” on Tuesday, December 3.

"Ang iyong franchise mag-end next year. If you expect ma-renew 'yan, I'm sorry. I will see to it that you’re out," said Duterte during a speech in front of new government officials at Malacañang.

(Your franchise will end next year. If you expect it to be renewed, I'm sorry. I will see to it that you're out.)

This is his 3rd time to make the threat.

ABS-CBN's current franchise, approved through Republic Act No. 7966 on March 30, 1995, is set to expire on March 30, 2020.


If the bill renewing the franchise does not get signed into law, ABS-CBN would have to close down its radio and television operations.

Duterte repeated his threat to ABS-CBN as part of a larger diatribe against powerful corporations he accused of "screwing over" the government, like Ayala Corporation and Manny Pangilinan's Metro Pacific Investments Corporation.

In April 2017, Duterte accused the network of "swindling" him for not airing his paid political advertisements during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Duterte first publicly threatened ABS-CBN days after he signed into law the franchise renewal of its rival, GMA Network. Duterte then repeated his threat to block the renewal of ABS-CBN's franchise in August 2018. (READ: Duterte: If it were up to me, no ABS-CBN franchise renewal)

House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano, Duterte's running mate in 2016, said he too has a "personal complaint" against the network.

But he promised the House of Representatives would give ABS-CBN's franchise renewal "due process." The House committee on legislative franchises was to tackle the franchise renewal bill before the end of 2019.

President Rodrigo Duterte said he is not softening his stance against the franchise renewal of major television network ABS-CBN.

Duterte said Tuesday, ABS-CBN will definitely be "out" next year. Its contract is set to end by March 2020 unless Congress and the President approve its extension.

"Ang inyong franchise mag-end next year [Your franchise will end next year]. If you are expecting na ma-renew 'yan [a renewal], I'm sorry. You're out. I will see to it that you're out," said Duterte during the oath-taking of newly appointed government officials in Malacañang.

Five bills have been filed to extend the franchise for another 25 years.

House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano said in October a panel from the lower chamber is set to tackle the renewal by yearend.

Duterte has repeatedly slammed the network in previous tirades. Last year, he stood firm against the renewal of the franchise, citing its failure to air his presidential campaign ads in 2016, even though the network was paid to do so. He repeated this claim.

"Ang ABS-CBN, 'yung bunganga ng inyong interes, they protect you...Kayo ngayon, mag-renew kayo ng contract? Ilan kayong mga senador ngayon na nagbayad sa inyo na hindi ninyo pinalabas yung kanila?," Duterte added.

[Translation: ABS-CBN, your interest protects you...Now you want to renew your contract? How many senators have paid you yet you failed to air theirs (ads)?]

He reiterated his allegation saying ABS-CBN showed preference in broadcasting the political ads of former Senator Antonio Trillanes over others.

"Unang nilabas ninyo 'yung kay Trillanes 'yung using the children of a propaganda.... Tinanggap ninyo ang ₱2 million ko, ni wala...Hindi lang ako 'yung na-ganoon, Chiz Escudero, marami. Lahat sa Congress," he said. "And you want us to bow down to your wealth and money and influence? Well, not with this administration. I am for the people and I will kill for the people."

[Translation: You aired Trillanes first who was using children for propaganda...You accepted my P2 million but none of my ads were aired...It was not just me but Chiz Escudero and many others. Everyone in Congress.]

President Rodrigo Duterte again vented his anger at ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corporation in his latest speech, even suggesting a way out for the hard-pressed major television network.

"Itong ABS, mag-expire ang contract ninyo, mag-renew kayo, ewan ko lang kung mangyari. Ako pa sa'yo, pagbili na ninyo 'yan," Duterte said in a talk to earthquake victims in Cotabato Monday.

[Translation: ABS-CBN, your contract is set to expire. I don't know if it will be renewed. If I were you, I'd sell the company.]

In a series of tweets Monday, the National Union of Journalists of the Philippines (NUJP) said Duterte's latest statement bore "all the signs of a shakedown and raises questions over his real intentions for seeking to block the renewal of the broadcast network’s franchise."

"Words that appear to be marching orders to his minions in Congress, led by Alan Peter Cayetano, who has admitted having “personal objections” to renewing the franchise in a clear conflict of interest," they said.

NUJP added, "We call on the community of independent Filipino journalists and on citizens who cherish democracy to band together and protect the free arena of ideas that the closure or forced sale of ABS-CBN would severely weaken."

The franchise of the embattled media corporation will expire in March 2020, unless Congress and Duterte approve its extension.

Congress was unable to tackle five pending bills to extend ABS-CBN's franchise for another 25 years in 2019.

Duterte has also consistently stood firm against the network and its executives.

The President's primary objection stemmed from the network's alleged failure to run his paid campaign advertisements during the 2016 election. 

ABS-CBN is one of the major TV networks in the country, with around 6,730 regular employees, 900 non-regular employees and 3,325 talents at the end of 2018, according to its report to the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Philippine Stock Exchange.
