Kapamilya viewers violently react on Rodante Marcoleta’s political ad aired on ABS-CBN

In 2021, Marcoleta heavily opposed the rediscussion of ABS-CBN’s franchise. He claimed the Network still needs to clarify something. He insisted that the station where it sits is not owned by the TV company.

On Monday, November 22, ABS-CBN supporters got disgusted after they saw Rep. Rodante Marcoleta’s political advertisement on ABS-CBN.

Netizens got astounded by the politician’s audacity to run an ad on the Network he helped shut down.



A netizen also pointed how ironic it is for Marcoleta (one of the heavy detractors of ABS-CBN during its franchise hearing) was not seen on a YouTube ad but in an actual commercial on the Network.

A Netizen even expressed his disgust after seeing the politician’s face.

Others were surprised to see his political ad on the Kapamilya network.

TV personality Justin Dizon even shared how he will never forget what Marcoleta did to prevent ABS-CBN from getting its franchise back.

While others were angered by the advertisement, some netizens understood that ABS-CBN does not discriminate.

Marcoleta was among the 70 congressmen who voted to deny ABS-CBN its franchise renewal.

He was also one of the heavy adversaries of the Network aside from Rep. Mike Defensor.

In 2020, Marcoleta stated his reasons why the Network does not deserve a new franchise.

One of them was because he felt that the Network was feeling “entitled.”

“It’s too late now. Hinihintay ko lang sanang magpakababa sila eh.

“They had that sense of entitlement.”

Though ABS-CBN has proven time and time again that they have not violated any laws, Marcoleta still insisted that their shutdown was their fault.

“Ako’y nagtataka kung bakit sinisisi kami ni Cong. Mike [Defensor] at tsaka ‘yung ibang kasama namin sa pagbasura ng kanilang prangkisa. Alam mo ang dapat na sisihin nila, ‘yung sarili nila.

“Ang nagpasara ng prangkisa, o nagbasura ng prangkisa, at nagpasara ng ABS-CBN ay ‘yung mga ebidensya na nabanggit, napatunayan sa pagdinig ng Kongreso,” he said during a discussion in SMNI News Channel’s DZAR Sonshine Radio 1026.

In 2021, Marcoleta heavily opposed the rediscussion of ABS-CBN’s franchise. He claimed the Network still needs to clarify something. He insisted that the station where it sits is not owned by the TV company.

“Oh eh bakit ka magsisimula ulit ng prangkisa eh hindi mo pa nga alam kung ikaw ang may-ari ng title na ‘yan?

“Ang unang itatanong ko sa mga kasamahan kong magtatangka or kung meron man talagang nag-file na nang bill para bigyan sila ng bagong prangkisa, eto tanong ko: anong gagawin ninyo sa dalawang resolution na…hindi pa nadidinig tungkol sa ABS-CBN? Anong gagawin ninyo sa questionable title na inihain ko bilang resolution na hindi pa nadinig?” 

Marcoleta persisted.

He also mentioned the National Telecommunications Commission’s (NTC) stoppage of ABS-CBN’s operations following its TV Plus violation.



“Yung ikalawang resolution ko yung tungkol sa paglabag at ang mga ebidensyang inihain ko dun na dapat silang magbayad ng ganung kalaking halaga sa mga paglabag hindi pa rin na-agenda. Hindi ba dapat ito muna ang unahin natin bago natin pagisipan man lang o bago tayo managinip na bigyan natin ng bagong prangkisa ang ABS-CBN?” Marcoleta continued.
