From the Presidential Spokesperson – On the issue of freedom of the press


The Constitution sets restrictions on the ownership and management of mass media entities to which all must abide.

The Securities and Exchange Commission is mandated among others to regulate the corporate sector.

The issue at hand is the compliance of 100% Filipino ownership and management of mass media. It is not about infringement on the freedom of the press.

No one is above the law. Rappler has to comply.
