QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – In his sixth and final State of the Nation Address (SONA), then President Rordrigo Duterte vented frustrations over ABS-CBN’s supposed dishonesty by importing its equipment “tax-free” and declaring only four hectares of property when it actually has 40 hectares.

Now, the owners of the ABS-CBN Broadcast Center have said they are ready to demolish their iconic building.

But questions arise as to whether or not the government should confiscate the building as payment for the disenfranchised network’s owed taxes.

Netizens argue the building could then be sold to the leading legitimate television network, GMA 7.

From Kapuso to Kapamilya!
