  1. At his age, he's seen it all. I believe him. Kung kapamilya talaga mga Lopez dapat hindi ganyan ang singil sa electric bill. I think the Philippines charge is one of the highest in the world.

    4. wag tayo magmagaling. grabi ang populasyon sa pilipinas. kailangan ng trabaho sa pilipinas. wag napagalingan kung hindi mo kayang makapagbigay ng trabaho or tulong sa bangsang maralita. manahimik kanalang.

    5. kung matalino kayo aba sigurado kaba nakaya mo maging bilyonaryo para makatulong sa bansa. mahirap ang buhay puri tayo yabang pero mahirap parin and bansa natin. ibang lahi pa ang mayayaman sa bansa natin. akala ko matatalino ang pinoy . puro reklamo na lang.

    6. walang perpekto . gawan ng paraan ang 3rd world country natin. matalino ba tayo?. nasaan na ang pag-asa ng bayan? o sadyang paasa lamang ang taong nakikinabang sa pera ng bayan.

      Delete
    7. trabaho ang dapat unahin para sa taong bayan. ubos na ang pera ng taong bayan, lulong sa utang ang mga maralitang walang pangkabuhayan. number solusyon kesa umasa sa 4p's.

    4. @7:22 wow talino mo ah, napa google ako dahil sayo. pero i think nasa issue naman si 12:43. kailangan nya sabihin yan para maunawaan ng iba na ang mga sinasabi ni national artist is hindi magandang basehan dahil sya mismo ay hindi mapagkakatiwalaan.

    5. 7:22 nagstick ba si Sir Nat Artist sa issue ng Franchise ng ABS? Yung comments nya about The Late Geny Lopez, was that part of the issues ng ABS CBN Franchise renewal?

  3. Wag na niya yurakan ang pagkatao ng patay na. Hindi naman un makakadefend ng sarili niya. At saka sinabi lang din pala sa kanya, so hearsay yon. Tsismis. Galit pala siya don sana di niya pinagbentahan. Tanda na ingitero pa sa mayaman.

    3. 1:06 bakit? Andon ka? Buhay ka na non? HAHAHA

  4. Is it the responsibility of ABS to diminish poverty? Sorry, I don't get it. And also, I am not one of the Filipinos who do not need ABS CBN. I think madami kami who needs ABS CBN, not only for entertainment, but for news and current affairs as well. Di man ako yumaman dahil sa ABS, napasaya naman nila ako and because of that I am grateful and hopeful na makabalik na ang ABS CBN on air soon.

  5. Lalim ng english nya but I did not get the point why Filipinos do not need ABS CBN. Why? Because theyre oligarchs? Capitalists? He is 95 years old, for sure he knows that hindi lang Pinas ang may Oligarkiya at Kapitalismo... pretty much every country has very influential families driving up the economy and politics. I cant see sa mahaba nyang litanya what his exact points were. There were about 11K employees in that network who got their paycheck from the company. Who are you to say hindi kailangan nung 11K na katao na yun ang ABS?

    4. 12.48 hindi siya needed dahil mabubuhay ka naman kahit wala sila. Hindi sila water, food, clothing, and shelter.

    5. At first I didn’t believe an article saying that Filipinos’ comprehension is diminishing. But you proved me wrong. I’m so sad.

    6. He's not a fan of the Lopezes because of the reasons he stated (read:hypocrites).

      As far as ABS is concerned, he is just saying Filipinos can live without it, it is not a necessity.

    7. Exactly. Yung sakin naman, hindi sa hindi ko gets yung point nya, pero parang masyadong shallow.

    8. 1:48, 1:52

    9. Actually malaki nawala kasi abscbn gives Information. And information gives you heads up about things.

    10. Abs is needed by people na walang access sa cable or internet. Sa mga OFWs na masayang nakaka panood lang ng TFC pag days off nila or breaks, and sa mga taong free tv viewings lang meron sa bahay nila. There are more poor people in the Philippines than middle class or rich ones. Tapos sabihin ni Duterte, mahal niya ang mahihirap, nungka...

    11. 11:47 for your information, I rarely watch TV. I prefer to get my infos from the internet, books or papers. It's probably you who's in front of telly the whole day or days even than us.

  6. So priority function pala nila ang pagtulong sa mahihirap? Akala ko trabaho ng gobyerno yun. Demand from your government to save the poor.

    1. bilyon bilyon na matagal hindi binayaran kung di pa nasilip ng current BIR. bottom line is mas higit na nakinabang ang Lopezes especially pag may relief canpaigns sila pati pagtulong nila halos lahat galing sa donations. iilan lang sa contract artists nila ang wholehearted tumulong na galing sa sariling nilang bulsa.

    2. Kung ofw ka, then you are probs using TFC or youtube to access abs cbn shows. Fyi, abs cbn can still operate through other platforms! So anong drama tong mawawalan work ang 11k employees?! Siguro a few hundreds, but not that much kasi pano sila makakacreate, produce and upload contents sa tfc, etc. Mawawalan ba talaga ng work ang ganon kadaming filipino or is this just abs cbn’s way to gain sympathy sa mga gullible and drama-seeking-life pinoys?

    3. kung ang paninda mo ay wala sa merkado kung saan pwede ka kumita maaaring malugi ka. tulad ng abs, kung wala siya s tv, hindi ganun ang kita nila kumpara sa mga sinabi mong platforms.dahil dun maaaring magbawas sila ng empleyado, totoo naman, paawa effect ang abs, pero totoo rin naman diversionary tactic ng gobyerno ngayon eto para malihis ang totoong problema natin, ang palpak na pag handle ng pandemic.

  14. napakasimplr lang ng gusto nyang iparating. Hindi kailangan ng tao ang ABS dahil hindi naman ito nakakatulong para umunlad ang isang tao. Sabi nga kung may nawala may bagong darating. Ang hirap kc sa ibang tao hindi naman sila empleyado ng abs pero kung magreact akala mo nawalan ng hanapbuhay. Tinalo pa si Coco Martin sa pagkagalit.

    3. 9:40 wala na sila paki dyan. Gusto nila i-push ang cable television kahit halos lahat wala ng cable. Cable tv is dying North America at wala ng choice but to go with the flow. Mag isip sila ng way to make profit kahit hindi masyado kumikita ang cable. Hold back ba nila ang mga networks kung gusto maging innovative?

  16. Opinion nya iyan. I personally need ABS CBN because of entertainment. As an immigrant living overseas ito lang ang way of getting updates on what's happening in the Philippines and of course mga shows na gusto ko. Besides in a democratic country kailangan talaga ang media.

  17. Totoo naman di naman talaga necessity ang abscbn so bakit uunahin ng mga mambabatas yung pagrenew ng license eh sa dami na nangyayari uunahin pa ba nila yan? Simulan natin sa taal papunta dito sa covid na maraming mga maliliit na negosyo ang nanganganib pati na rin ang ekonomiya.

  31. Hindi lang yung 11k kawani ang apektado pati yung pamilya nila na umaasa sa kanila. Chain reaction yan, yung advertisers, caterers, outsourced employees like security guards, janitors, etc. Kaya ng ABS paswelduhin pa for 3 mos.yung employees, eh yung mga sub-contractors nila, baka magsara dahil sa nangyari.

  32. Tama naman ang sinabi nya eh. Filipino people don't really need ABS because hindi naman siya essential things like water, food etc. Ang iba kasi gigil na gigil na ibalik na para bang it's a matter of life and death sa kanila, eh hindi naman sila empleyado ng ABS. As Juan Ponce Enrile says, it's sad na mawawalan ng work ang mga empleyado but business wise --if walang franchise, walang business. They include press freedom in their argument, eh ginugulo lang nila ang usapan.

Hindi natin ikakamatay ang pagkawala nito, kung nawalan ng trabaho yung 11k na yon panigurado may mga ibang kumpanya silang mapapasukan hindi lang network company, may mga iba't ibang klaseng kumpanya pwede sila mapasukan.

  34. I think you guys are missing the point. His point is simply that the Lopezes personify the worst of oligarchs. They will hold on to power even if it means bribing the government and taking advantage of their employees. They don't care about morals or integrity, they only care about keeping their position of power. They have no qualms with being biased and destroying individuals to preserve their influence. The closing of ABS-CBN is not a loss precisely because, at its core, it does not operate with integrity. Moreover, people will survive without ABS-CBN. In the next few weeks/months, they will find a lot of other sources of entertainment and news, and the world will keep on turning.

    ReplyDelete
  35. ABS CBN is just a company. May papalit at papalit. Not interested in who's right or who's wrong. All I'm saying is that the wheel is round. At the end of the day, we don't rely on them to breathe. Wag masyado sentimental kung hindi ka naman empleyado. Sensationalism is really our weakness. We're too sensitive, too emotional. And too bias. The Duterte supporters, the anti-government... one good thing I see though is that this will open up venues for creativity. Napag-iwanan na tayo, let's move forward and quit the habit of crying over spilled milk.
