Network War: AGB Report: ABS-CBN contacted panel homes

AGB report says ABS-CBN also contacted panel homes during promos ? GMA Network (GMA News)

Based on the audit findings of AGB Nielsen, ABS-CBN?s promotional activities included offering 300 pesos cash monthly as well as groceries in exchange for loyal viewing of ABS-CBN shows.

ABS-CBN, according to the AGB report, also entered panel homes to ?check signal clarity in exchange for gift offering.”

Hahaha! ABS-CBN opened a can of worms for themselves. Grabe, ABS-CBN News should be ashamed. They are now even saying that the TRO being filed against them is stifling freedom of the press — well, it now looks like ABS-CBN News is biased and being used by its parent ABS-CBN to try to win the Philippine TV Network War.

In trying to discredit AGB, ABS-CBN just created more problems for themselves. Like I said before, if it’s a war they want, it’s a war they are going to get.

Justice for the Wowowee Stampede Victims!

Network War: ABS-CBN — AGB Nielsen involved in Ratings Manipulation

See? See? ABS-CBN’s real goal is to discredit AGB Nielsen. How can all these allegations hold up in court? ABS-CBN is so irresponsible and so desperate. This smear campaign is so disgusting.

If there was cheating in Bacolod/Iloilo, it obviously did not affect the results of the national ratings. Again, ABS-CBN was #1 in those areas when the alleged cheating happened so in other words, ABS-CBN is claiming that their #1 rating is BOGUS because of the cheating.

Naku mga desperada. (via Starmometer)
