Cayetano: Multi-Million Peso Worth Of Anti-Duterte TV Ad To Be Aired By ABS-CBN
Duterte running-mate Alan Peter Cayetano on Thursday cautioned the public regarding the possible
airing of multi-million peso worth of negative TV advertisement against his partner Mayor Rodrigo Duterte.
Cayetano said his source claimed that the advertisement was rejected by other TV networks, but ABS-CBN’s ethics committee allegedly “blindly approved” the offer.
“The mayor’s rivals are obviously afraid, and so they are resorting to these cheap stunts to try and bring his image down,” the senator said.
“They are so desperate that, aside from the full barrage of trimedia attacks against Mayor Duterte, they are now trying to push for millions in advertisements in major networks in the last few days of the campaign,” he added.
Earlier today news of the Anti-Duterte advertisement circulated online. Philippine Star columnist and blogger Ms. Cecile Zamora-Van Straten tweeted that based on inside information, 20 million pesos worth of Anti-Duterte ads will be aired all night Friday on ABS-CBN and that another station rejected such offer.
