Will media freedom in the Philippines make it through?


It has actually been referred to as the most serious attack on media freedom in the Philippines. 

President Rodrigo Duterte has actually submitted a Supreme Court petition to close down ABS-CBN, the nation’s  biggest tv network, implicating it of devoting “highly abusive practices”.

Duterte has actually consistently promised to stop the network’s operations and has actually threatened other media outlets.

In a demonstration on Friday, the National Union of Reporters of the Philippines implicated the Duterte federal government of attempting to silence media critics.

So will freedom of speech make it through in among Asia’s biggest democracies?
