ABS-CBN is the oldest and largest TV network station in the Philippines, and on July 10, 2020, it got permanently shut down by the government. Given the rocky relationship ABS-CBN had with the Duterte administration, critics view this decision to shut down the network as a violation of press freedom. Our Asian Boss correspondent hit the streets of Manila to talk with both protestors and supporters of the decision to find out why this happened and how ordinary Filipino citizens feel about it.
