Rappler’s Pia Ranada speaks to veteran journalist John Nery about how the fate of ABS-CBN fits into President Rodrigo Duterte’s broader attack on press freedom.
In this second episode of the Seat of Power podcast, let’s untangle how Duterte and his allies take advantage of people’s lack of understanding about the practice of journalism to further the narrative of “Duterte vs the oligarchs.”
Was targeting ABS-CBN, a much-loved and powerful network, a misstep? And what does this mean for the 2022 presidential elections?
