7 Day History

The non-renewal of ABS-CBN sets a dangerous precedent.
Because gov't allowed politicking in the process of renewing a legis. franchise & succeeded in shutting down a media institution,we have begun to ring the death knell of press freedom in the country
One reason why we should be worried about ABS-CBN's shutdown is bec a new anti-terror law is about to take effect. It means less news coverage of arrests and human rights violations. The gov't has gained more control of what people should see, if they want people to actually see.
We just scored a major victory against Gov. Gavin Newsom’s illegal executive order on California’s elections.

Before our challenge, Democrats planned to automatically send ballots to inactive voters, including people who have moved or died.

Now they are not.
Wow. The biggest network can be denied a franchise even if BIR, DOLE, COMELEC (+ other gov’t agencies) have already OFFICIALLY stated that it has NO VIOLATIONS.

THAT is why this is a matter of press freedom, ladies and gentlemen.
