Lopez: I am a Filipino

ABS-CBN Chairman Emeritus Eugenio "Gabby" Lopez III testifies via the internet before a House of Representatives joint committee hearing on the network's franchise on Wednesday. Lopez, who was born in the US, was grilled by two House committees on his citizenship where he maintained that he is a natural-born Filipino and a US citizen, and that he would give up his US citizenship "in a minute if it came down to a conflict of interest."
