MANILA, Philippines (AP) — Philippine lawmakers voted Friday to reject the license renewal of the country’s largest TV network, one of the critical news agencies the president has repeatedly threatened, in a move that shut down a major news provider amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The House of Representatives committee on franchises voted to reject a new 25-year franchise for ABS-CBN Corp., which the National Telecommunications Commission ordered to be shut down in May after its old franchise expired. It left the air then, but the vote takes it off the air permanently.
