Netizens supportive of ABS-CBN and the grant of its franchise took to social media to air their reaction to Solicitor General Jose Calida’s arrogant rhetoric at the House of Representatives.
During the Monday, June 1 hearing of the Committee on Legislative Franchises on the ABS-BCN franchise, Calida said ABS-CBN’s demise is near quoting the line from Frank Sinatra’s ‘My Way’.
“For decades now, ABS-CBN has been deceiving the Filipino people. Their brazen act must come to an end. The hour of reckoning may have been delayed, but it now has come.
“I could hear now the voice of Frank Sinatra resonates… ‘And now, the end is near,” he said.
It was Calida’s first appearance in Congress after ignoring several invitations in the past.
Meanwhile, netizens can’t help but blast Calida’s arrogant statement against the network.
Calida is so unethical he is now saying to ABS CBN ‘the end is near’ he must have known that the hearing is a mere charade. Fine have it your way. This is the legacy of the most corrupt admin in the history of the Philippines. The darkest era in our history

Calida— you are not speaking for all Filipinos so refrain from making general statements. Such abuse of power!
