“Hold the line”. I find this so OA. Maria Ressa is simply not very smart. She can’t stay out of trouble. She should learn from the best. Perhaps even a “minor-minor” blogger can teach her how to kick some ass without getting sued or arrested.
I don’t even know why Maria Ressa is acting so “surprised” she got arrested when the fact that she was included in the libel lawsuit was all over the news. She’s either not very smart or she thinks she can fool everyone. Either way, it doesn’t look good. This #DefendPressFreedom is misguided.
Perhaps some so-called journalists wish they would get arrested too because they are bored…it’s baffling why they are still enjoying their freedom to criticise the very person they accuse of abusing his power. Aren’t they accusing members of the judiciary of being corrupt as well?
Only a judge can decide Maria Ressa’s fate now, but it seems Maria Ressa’s supporters know better than a Philippine judge.
In life, things are not always what they seem.
