In a recent tweet, the self-described “human rights activist” and “democracy advocate” issued his assessment of the intelligence of members of the two big social media platforms…
Not only is he calling Facebook users stupid, he is also accusing them of being paid hacks funded by Filipino taxpayers.
One wonders a very basic wonder… Does Frank Baraan IV have proof to back his assertions?
Perhaps Baraan fails to see the irony in his statements — words that have, themselves, not been subject to a proper fact check even by himself.
Interestingly enough, there continues a persistent mystery surrounding the possible involvement of his father, Francisco Baraan the Third, in the thriving drug trade in the Philippines. Indeed the questions continue to be asked… Was he really involved in drug trafficking at the New Bilibid Prisons?
Considering a quaint cottage industry of so-called “fact checkers” has sprung up all over the Philippines’ social media scene, no facts have actually emerged to clarify this matter.
