Senate newsmen slam brazen attempts to curtail press freedom


Reporters covering the Senate have joined other press corps in expressing support for their colleagues in ABS-CBN as they condemned the “brazen attempts to curtail” press freedom and the Filipino public’s right to information.

“We, the reporters covering the Senate, condemn the brazen attempts to curtail press freedom and the Filipinos right to information with the efforts to shut down ABS-CBN on flimsy grounds.

We stand by our colleagues in ABS-CBN and we will do our utmost to defend them and the freedom of the press, a vital part of a healthy democracy.

We also see these attempts as an insult to the intelligence of the Filipino people, who are constantly bombarded with disinformation that the mainstream media has been trying to fight.” – Senate reporters
