Senator Grace Poe Bats For Partial Renewal Of ABS-CBN Franchise

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) –  Senator Grace Poe is being true to form both as an advocate against fake news and a loving daughter to the late Fernando Poe, Jr. (FPJ).

Today, she filed a Senate resolution calling for the partial renewal of ABS-CBN’s franchise which expires this March.

The divisive issue pits those who are for the non-renewal of the franchise against those who are for renewal.

Poe wants to renew the entertainment portion of the franchise while cancelling the broadcast network’s news operations.

ABS-CBN, besides being cited for tax evasion and violation of labor laws, is also accused of being a purveyor of fake, biased news.

”We must continue our crusade against fake news, but we also need to seriously consider the feelings of millions of Filipinos who follow the long-running FPJ’s “Ang Probinsyano” and other teleseryes and variety shows on ABS-CBN,” Poe told The Adobo Chronicles.
