Angelica Panganiban slams MTRCB’s intent to filter online streaming: ‘Bakit ba takot na takot kayo sa media at entertainment?’

“Bakit ba takot na takot kayo sa media at entertainment? Una press freedom… ngayon pati kalayaan namin gumawa at mag kwento, totoo man o pagpapanggap, gusto niyong kontrolin. Tinatamaan ba kayo? Kasi masyadong malapit sa totoong buhay ang napapanood niyo?”

The Movie and Television Review and Classification Board’s (MTRCB) proposal to control online streaming services was questioned by Angelica Panganiban.

The actress expressed her ire over this issue, as she believes it deprives people of the right to express themselves and tell stories.

“Bakit ba takot na takot kayo sa media at entertainment? Una press freedom… ngayon pati kalayaan namin gumawa at mag kwento, totoo man o pagpapanggap, gusto niyong kontrolin. Tinatamaan ba kayo? Kasi masyadong malapit sa totoong buhay ang napapanood niyo?”

The anger of the actress is rooted in the non-renewal of the ABS-CBN franchise which resulted in the loss of jobs of around 11,000 employees.

To recall, in July, Congress decided to kill the media giant’s bid for a fresh 25-year franchise.

This decision caused the closure of some programs and even TV and radio news programs of the network.

With this, many people believe that the non-renewal of the network’s franchise is a deprivation of press freedom as many lost access to news and information.

Angelica is one of the Kapamilya celebrities who really voiced out their sentiments against the ABS-CBN franchise denial.
