What does Fiersa Besari think?
Timeline Twitter is being shocked by the lawsuit that is currently being filed by RCTI and INews TV. Many netizens discussed this lawsuit, so that RCTI was included in the list of “Trending Topic Indonesia” on Thursday, 27 August 2020 until today. As is known, the station owned by the MNC group filed a lawsuit regarding the judicial review of the Broadcasting Law to the Constitutional Court. If the lawsuit is granted, netizens in the country will no longer be free to live on social media. Be it on Instagram or Facebook.
Live activities on social media will later be categorized as broadcasting, so individuals, business entities, or legal entities will be forced to have a license to become a broadcasting institution. Those who fail to meet the broadcasting licensing requirements will be considered illegal broadcasters. So that they must be disciplined by law enforcement officers. This is because broadcasting without a license is a criminal offense.
This is what then annoys netizens. Tweets of annoyance and disappointment at the station, which recently turned 31 this year, immediately flooded the Twitter mass line.
