Call for sobriety without compromise and commence corrective measures
Finally, even without any court declaration of its perceived violations, after what has been said and done, no less than the network’s leadership conceded that it isn’t perfect and impliedly admitted having committed lapses.
The network may therefore constructively and objectively reassess the events that transpired and the findings against it, rightly or wrongly for its own betterment.
It can also opt to temper its #labankapamilya campaign and instead call for sobriety without compromising its duty to call out erring public officials, respect the legal processes and instead employ additional remedial and corrective measures, even without the legislative franchise (yet) as it operates its online content.
As to how these corrective measures may be effected is up to ABS-CBN. After all, the findings in the Congressional hearing may even be a basis for potential lawsuits to come.
And maybe just maybe, either before or even in the next Congress, it may eventually be granted such privilege, even a critical or a conditional YES.
After all, there is no bar in refiling a similar bill (assuming none of the members of the committee who voted to approve the resolution denying the franchise would seek reconsideration in behalf of ABS-CBN within 24 hours).
There is no permanency in everything except change and another denial may even be perceived as more than too harsh as a consequence given additional corrective measures ABS-CBN will hopefully be able to show and implement in due time.
