Duterte neutral daw sa ABS-CBN franchise? Karen Davila hits Roque’s ‘play of words’

Harry Roque’s statement did not sit well with veteran anchor Karen Davila regarding the stance of President Rodrigo Duterte towards the ABS-CBN franchise.

The presidential spokesperson said Duterte is ‘completely neutral’ on the issue of the ABS-CBN franchise renewal that is being seeked in the Congress.

“Wag po kayo mag-alala mga congressmen, hindi po magagalit, hindi matutuwa ang Presidente kung kayo po’y ipasa ang ABS-CBN. Completely neutral po ang Presidente diyan,” said Roque.

This was after the President exclaimed that he won’t allow the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) to hand ABS-CBN a permit to operate even if their franchise is renewed by the Congress.

Davila described the statement of Roque as a mere ‘play of words’, and added that they have played with people’s lives.

“Thousands of employees of ABSCBN had loans, mortgages to pay. Some passed away after the closure. ABSCBN wasn’t about the Lopezes, it was about people,” Davila tweeted.
