Ang Kapatiran cries foul on ABS-CBN

MANILA — Ang Kapatiran Party presidential bet JC De los Reyes will file a case with the Commission Elections (Comelec) before the Holy Week due to the unfair election coverage of media giant ABS-CBN.

In a press briefing at a Pasig City restaurant, the party forwarded three demands to the network:

* that the network publicly rectify the exclusion of lawyer Dominador
“Jun” Chipeco from the debate
* the public correction of the false news report or press release that implies the presence of Mr. Chipeco in the debate.
* the party respectfully request a reply (to this letter) within 24 hours as the continuing seeming discrimination against Ang Kapatiran maybe causing damage to the positive image public image we have generated and in fairness to our supporters who expect this.

The party particularly reacted on the network’s “apparent and deliberate exclusion” of Chipeco from the “Harapan: The Vice Presidentiable Forum” last March 21 and in the online news report about the debate.

Party president Eric Manalang said they forwarded the letter to the office of Maria Ressa, ABS-CBN’s Senior Vice President for News and Current Affairs, but the company has yet to issue a statement on the matter.
