'Reprimand'

THE KAPISANAN ng mga Brodkaster sa Pilipinas (KBP) has "reprimanded" broadcaster and dzBB station manager Mike Enriquez for violating KBP program standards concerning "personal attacks" against other broadcasters and networks on his dzBB radio program on May 12 and 13 last year.

Among Enriquez's statements found to have violated KBP program standards were his comments against Sky Cable and Home Cable.


"Ang sabi po ng ABS-CBN desperado na raw ang GMA dahil di raw sila kayang talunin sa ratings kaya dinadaan na lang sa demanda. Dinemanda na po ng GMA itong Sky Cable at Home Cable . . . dahil lahat yung istasyon, malinaw yung signal, pagdating sa GMA, masama yung signal. Sino ang desperado? Wag kaming tawaging desperado, sapagkat hindi po, (ABS-CBN said GMA was desperate to beat them in the ratings that's why they resorted to legal action. GMA has already sued Sky Cable and Home Cable . . . because all of the stations have clear signals, but when it comes to GMA, the signal is bad. Don't call us desperate, because we're not)," Enriquez said.

Thousand peso fine

Enriquez was also penalized for his comments on the alleged "personal interests" of the Lopez-owned broadcasting network.

"Kikilatis kayo sa mga himpilan na pinakikinggan ninyo at pinapanood. Tanungin ninyo. Yan bang himpilan na yan may pino-protektahan bang mga negosyo yan o wala? . . . may mga pulitika ba yan sa senado? Sa gobyerno (Scrutinize the radio programs and television stations that you patronize. Ask [yourself] if the station is protecting businesses or not, or if it is sponsoring politicians in the Senate or in the government)?"

According to the KBP Standard Authority resolution released on March 5, the sanction was based on a complaint filed by ABS-CBN against Enriquez's on-air commentaries last May.

Radio station dzBB is listed under RGMA, an affiliate of GMA 7.

The Standards Authority (SA) is the enforcement arm of the KBP.

The KBP-SA has also slapped a P1,000 fine on Enriquez for violating section A, paragraph 4F of the KBP program standards, which states that "personal attacks against fellow broadcasters and other stations are considered unethical and subject to sanctions."

Personal bias, misleading info

The KBP said that Enriquez had also violated section B, which concerns the duty of public service programs to present public issues "free from personal bias, prejudice, inaccurate and misleading information."

Inquirer Entertainment obtained a copy of the resolution.

But in a statement sent to Inquirer Entertainment on Friday, RGMA and Enriquez disagreed with the KBP ruling.

It said Enriquez merely reported the factual allegations of the complaints, which GMA had filed against ABS-CBN and various cable companies in the Regional Trial Court and the NTC for signal distortion and unlawful merger, consolidation and corporate combinations.

These statements did not originate from Enriquez, according to the statement. They are true and fair reports on a matter of public interest and concern, it added.

RGMA and Enriquez will appeal the ruling and elevate it to the courts if necessary, the statement said.


Life goes on

Enriquez, in a telephone interview on Friday said the case is "already in the hands of our legal department."

"Life goes on," Enriquez said. "I have bigger concerns than this."


Enriquez's lawyers submitted a counter argument to the KBP-SA last Dec. 4.

The lawyers argued that "KBP has no jurisdiction over the complaint since Enriquez is an officer of GMA 7 and GMA 7 has already withdrawn its membership from KBP."

Based on this, the court proceedings are "unlawful and irregular," according to the lawyers.

But in a hearing last Dec. 5, the KBP-SA decided that dzBB is listed under RGMA, a company that is still a member of KBP.

The complaint against Enriquez was filed by Maloli Manalastas, ABS-CBN vice president for government, corporate affairs and public relations, last May 13, 2003.

Distorted signal

GMA 7 filed a complaint before the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) for distortion and degradation of signal, after Sky Cable and Home Cable transferred GMA 7 from Channel 12 to Channel 14. Network officials alleged that there were times when GMA 7's video appeared with electronic streaks and with discernible color spill-over on the two cable providers.

GMA 7 engineers had also reported a tampered audio signal.

The network has also withdrawn its membership from the KBP in September 2003 because it is dissatisfied with the broadcast organization's "present thrusts and actions."

As a result of the network's withdrawal, Antonio Veloso, GMA 7 administrative division vice president, also resigned as KBP president.

During the Dec. 5 hearing, the KBP-SA quoted a letter that GMA 7 president Felipe Gozon had sent to KBP Executive Director Reynaldo Hulog last Sept. 1, stating that, "all AM and FM radio stations of GMA should be listed under RGMA."

A list of all RGMA's AM and FM stations included dzBB.

    teka sino bang hindi nagviviolate nyang provision na yan:?:
  • duh it's the final decision after some deliberations of a complaint filed by ABS CBN against GMA-Mike Enriquez...dating back when GMA kapusod was still a member of KBP...alangan namang hindi patawan ng penalty ang nagkasala dahil lang sa hindi na ito member ng KBP?
  • laki ng ilong nya, paliitin nya muna

    Nakakahiya, i mean, when foreigners come here in the Philippines for a visit and turn the televisions on and they will see Mike Enriquez, woah, its embarassing because they might generalize how ugly filipinos look. He should be axed from national television, he hasnt developed yet to become a human.

    BTW, weird because on my skycable, GMA channel 12 is clearer than channel 8 (which is ABS CBN) so I really never got what they are complaigning about. I guess, just a defense for their continued falling of their ratings
  • pollywogpollywog PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    ...on his looks. Nakita ko sya dati sa St. Scholastica, ka-batch pala ng sister ko yung anak nya. Kung anong nakikita nyo sa TV ganun din talaga sa personal! Tapos kung umasta sya, feeling nya ang gwapo gwapo nya! Kitang kita ko talaga yung pagka-butas butas ng mukha nya. he he he...

    Nung nanalo si Mike sa Asian Television Awards for Best Newscaster in Asia at sa New York Festival Gold Medalist ganun na ang mukha nya pero nanalo pa rin sya at mas marami sigurong mas presentable pero di sila nanalo ang tinitignan nila ang capability hindi ang itsura ng mukha. Yun kayang namimintas sa kanya ano kaya ang mga itsura nya siguro super gaganda or pogi ano kaya galing nyong mamintas.
  • napaka-shallow ng response ng iba? ano naman kinalaman ng butas ng ilong nya sa issue?

    anyway, ABS considered him a big threat to their newscasters that's why they find ways to destroy him.

    kase naman, bato-bato sa langit ang tamaan wag magagalit...
  • iyong iba diyang hateful people nagkalat na naman! kala mo naman sila kagandahan! HOY! malaki ang karangalang ibinigay ni Mike Enriquez sa bansa natin sa mga awards na natanggap niya lalo na iyong Best Anchor sa Asian Television Awards!

  • JeffreywJeffreyw PEx Veteran ⭐⭐
