A web of family ties and relationships past and present form a matrix of interconnection between Senator Grace Poe and embattled media conglomerate ABS-CBN. Indeed, ABS-CBN is not just a broadcast and media network, it is a political network in and of itself.
Small wonder that the full might of Yellowtardom is behind ABS-CBN’s “fight” to keep its lucrative broadcast franchise. Such was at stake that Senator Poe personally headed a Senate “inquiry” into the franchise renewal issue. At stake are not just shareholders’ fortunes but also the fortunes of entertainment demigods and political families.
