Lawyer and radio host Trixie Cruz Angeles once again has taken to social media to share her opinion this time regarding the franchise renewal of TV network ABS-CBN.

On a recent Facebook post, Angeles talked about how ABS-CBN, as she would see it, become the enormous media company that they are now and what could possibly be the reason why they are facing different charges at the moment.

According to the prominent lawyer, the network became so big because they allegedly come between the government, reason why they got this special treatment and contracts, in exchange for favorable coverage of their favorite politicians, like boost publicity, in the service of the Lopez family.

She likewise discussed the reason why the network was sued in the first place.

Below is Atty. Angeles' full powerful post: 




"Ganito yon. Kaya naging supermega heavyweight media conglomerate ang ABS CBN ay dahil nakikialam sila sa gobyerno. They got preferential treatment and juicy contracts.

Ang kapalit, favorable coverage. Hindi nila tayo binibigyan ng info. Binibigyan nila tayo ng mga press releases ng mga favorite politicians nila, disguised as stories.

Nag engage din sila sa mga media campaigns tulad ng ginagawa ng mga PR people. Well... kamtotinkopit, parang glorified PR lang nga sila. In the service of the Lopez family.

At the same time, nagbibigay sila ng aliw. Eh alam niyo naman yang kasabihan, di ba? Basta mabigay ang bread (may nakakain) and circus (entertainment), quiet lang ang mamamayan. Distracted eh.



At dahil sa pagmamalabis na ito, napansın sila ng pangulo. Nung 2017 ginawa niyang priority ang pag reinterpret ng Public Service Act para yang public utilities are ma limit na lang sa koryente, tubig at sewerage. Dun sa saligang batas kasi yung mga public utilities ay kailangan 100 percent Filipino owned.

Kapag hindi na public utility ang mga ito, mapapayagan ang foreign investors sa larangan ng transportation, communications, broadcasting at iba pa. Kapag may foreign ownership, makakapasok ngayon ang ibang korporasyon.

May kumpetisyon na ang ABS at iba pang stations. In fact, the more, the many-er. More investment, more stations, more choices. Di na makakadikta ang ABS ng mga crappy shows, ng taste, ng news, ng opinyon.

So bakit kinasuhan ang ABS? Aba, eh paano kung pakialaman nila ang mga batas mag minimize ng kanilang power? Eto nga at huling huli silang lumalabag sa batas at nagbibuild ng virtual monopoly. Papayagan ba natin tuloytuloy pa ring hahawak ng prankisa ang ganyan?"
