House Speaker Alan Peter Cayetano defends the rejection of ABS-CBN's franchise renewal bid.

Cayetano says that Congress did not hinder press freedom but simply quote 'Put an end to the privilege of one family.'

However, a media watchdog believes otherwise.

That's why it wants an independent agency to grant franchises instead.
