Read this idiotic TIME Magazine article. It presumes to “report” on Fake News Crybaby and Rappler CEO Maria Ressa claiming that “the looming threat of tax evasion charges against prominent Philippine journalist Maria Ressa has prompted an outpouring of support” mainly coming from (who else?) “journalists around the world”.
But of course. “Journalists” are the 21st Century’s biggest crybabies because they’ve in recent times had their candy — domination of the planet’s information dissemination infrastructure — taken from them unceremoniously. They go about their monumental tantrum by putting up their own personal Satan — “fake news”.
Rather than redeem themselves and compete to regain a decent share of their lost pie, they instead ratchet up the dishonesty in their discredited craft. This recent article where they elevate Ressa to industry martyr is the latest example of the abomination their industry had become. Nowhere in this “report” are actual facts about Ressa’s tax evasion charges presented. That’s not just being biased, that’s just being plain dishonest.
