“Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth.” Sharon Cuneta expresses dismay over SAGIP Marcoleta’s ‘paulit-ulit’ claims

Megastar Sharon Cuneta slams House Deputy Speaker Rodante Marcoleta on issues that are considered to be redundant during the ABS CBN franchise Congressional Hearing. 

Megastar Sharon Cuneta slammed House Deputy Speaker Rodante Marcoleta for insisting on bringing up issues that were considered to be redundant during the ABS-CBN franchise Congressional Hearing.

Rep. Marcoleta has been the center of attention since last Tuesday when he pointed out one-by-one the alleged violations of the Kapamilya network.

In her tweet, Sharon said: “’Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth,’ is a law of propaganda often attributed to the Nazi – ito ang sinusunod na prinsipyo ni Rep. Marcoleta at marami silang ganyan! Kaya paulit-ulit natin itong sagutin ng katotohanan!”

Sharon also stressed that Rep. Marcoleta wasted the time and effort of everyone present at the Congressional hearing especially since all the allegations he brought up against the media giant were already answered before.

The Megastar expressed her dismay with Marcoleta.

On Marcoleta’s redundant allegations, Sharon replied: “ating gobyerno, BIR, DOJ, NTC, DOLE, SEC. Para po sa kalinawan ng lahat, Eto pong muli ang mga malinaw na sagot ng ABS-CBN sa lahat ng isyung paulit-ulit na binabato subalit may mga naihayag nang kasagutan noon pa man. Sinsayang ni Rep. Marcoleta ang oras ng Congress hearing.”

In his speech, Rep. Marcoleta said ABS-CBN violated laws that is why it does not deserve a fresh 25-year franchise. However, it can be recalled in February’s Senate hearing that the concerned government agencies themselves cleared ABS-CBN of any violation. ABS-CBN president and CEO Carlo Katigbak himself reiterated that the network has done nothing wrong in his opening statement, which he delivered before Marcoleta took to the floor.

“Sabi po ng BIR (Bureau of Internal Revenue), bayad ang aming buwis. Nanggaling po sa SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) na aprubado sa kanila ang pag-issue ng mga PDR (Philippine Depositary Receipts). Ang Department of Justice (DOJ) ang nagsabi na hindi labag sa prangkisa ang KBO (Kapamilya Box Office). Ang DOLE (Department of Labor and Employment) naman ay nagsabi na sumunod kami sa lahat ng compliance orders nila,” Katigbak said.

Twitter users on Tuesday (May 26) refuted the issues raised by Marcoleta, saying that the solon was merely repeating allegations against ABS-CBN that were already answered and cleared in February, making Marcoleta a top Twitter trend on the day of the joint hearing.
