VP Robredo bares new troll tactic to blame her for ABS-CBN franchise


Online trolls won’t stop spreading lies, and their latest attempt is to try to blame the denial of ABS-CBN’s franchise on Vice President Leni Robredo even though it was President Duterte and his allies responsible for it.

In a Facebook post, Robredo warned against the new propaganda of her attackers.

Their latest script involves pointing out that she was part of the Committee on Good Government and Public Accountability when she was a congresswoman during the Aquino administration, and did nothing about the ABS-CBN franchise.

But she pointed out that the matter is handled by the committee on legislative franchises, and she was not even part of it.

A quick check of the public record would clearly show this, she added.

Trolls are allergic to facts, we guess!

“So apparently, this is the new propaganda being fed to the trolls.

Pilit na pilit at hindi pinag aralan. Ang mga franchise applications po ay wala sa Committee on Good Government and Public Accountability. Jurisdiction po yun ng Committee on Legislative Franchises. Hindi po ako member nun. Madali lang pong i check kasi public record naman yun.

Puwede lang pong ma involve ang ibang committees kung may matters na kabahagi ng franchise application na irefer sa kanila. Nung 16th Congress po kung saan ako kabahagi, hindi po ito ni refer sa aming Committee. Committee on Legislative Franchises lang po ang humawak nito noon.
