ABS-CBN’s reputation has been souring these days. There were speculations that their reporting are biased favoring their own interests. The station is observed to be pro-Liberal and one of the major tool for the yellow party’s media propaganda against their political opponents.
Earlier this year, INC or Iglesia ni Kristo, a religious group staged a plea to boycott ABS-CBN due to the alleged biased reporting and escalation of the issue with regards to its founder’s family dispute. The station has been accused of false reporting like the abduction cases that did not happen.
This time, Bongbong Marcos and Gringo Honasan were adamant to attend the Vice Presidential debate scheduled at 5:00 PM local time today. Citing that they would rather not show up than be treated indifferently or worst humiliated. This is the same approach Vice President Jejomar Binay took during the Senate’s Blue Ribbon hearings for the alleged anomalies involving him. So, naturally many Binay, Marcos and Honasan supporters will be turning their channel somewhere else.
