GMA 7, Not Penalized for Hostage Coverage Violation


GMA 7

ABS-CBN, TV5 and Radio Mindanao Network are all asked by KBP to pay P30,000 for violating its rules on appropriate coverage.

According to its internal investigative panel, all 3 networks were found out to have crossed the line just to get a good scoop on the August 2010 Luneta hostage-taking crisis.

PCIJ or Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism however said that the penalty of P30,000 is very petty compared to the number of lives lost and risked, time lost in finger pointing, and damage to international relations and tourism.

KBP However did not impose a penalty on GMA 7 since it is not a member of the organization.
