    Look at the Presidential debates in the US. When a certain network hosts the debate, they have EXCLUSIVE hold of the debate including the footage and cameras. The other networks will just have to air the footage of the network in-charge of the debates.

    Gkopya ra nato ang idea of holdings debates gikan sa mga Amerikano. So nganung magdala pa man og camera sa sulod nga naa naman mga camera ang GMA???? TSK
