Maria Ressa showed her arrogance during her interview with Stephen Sackur of HardTalk.

I finally had a chance to listen to the whole podcast of BBC journalist Stephen Sackur’s interview with Maria Ressa in his program HardTalk. Sackur did manage to ask some hard questions, which Ressa simply tried to dodge. She did not answer the questions directly. She kept insisting President Rodrigo Duterte’s popularity is a product […]

Rappler LIES in its claim that there is “overwhelming” interest in Maria Ressa documentary

According to a tweet fielded by Rappler, there was an “overwhelming number of requests” for the much-hyped PBS “documentary” A Thousand Cuts which features none other than Rappler CEO Maria Ressa. No details as to where or in what form these “requests” come from was provided. Were these emailed? Was there a trending hashtag on […]

ORCHESTRATED promotion of Maria Ressa’s plight DOMINATES Philippine media!

As expected, Rappler is again using its trademark lazy style of “journalism” (cherry-picking tweets) and promoting its own CEO, Maria Ressa’s agenda in time for a critical court decision to be handed out tomorrow (Monday) on a case involving her. This is the sort of CROOKED journalism that is killing mainstream news media! Ressa’s “allies” […]

Upper class “woke” types defending #ABSCBN and its jolog “talents” prove they want to keep the Filipino masses stupid!

One of the funny things about this ABS-CBN shutdown is that the noisiest, shrillest cries of pain and dismay come from upper class types. Not just perfumed upper class types, mind you, but always angry, always online Woke™ types. You would think those people, on a normal, Duterte-free day, would have nothing to do with […]

The fact that #ABSCBN can still stream TV Patrol over the Net proves this is NOT about “press freedom”

This tweet proves that ABS-CBN and its apologists were misleading Filipinos into thinking that their plight was an issue of “press freedom”. Kapamilya, tutok na sa @TVPatrol!

The shutdown of ABS-CBN is good for Philippine society

Whoa…hard to believe rule of law has prevailed in the Philippines! This is a victory for all the little people who got in trouble with the law for jaywalking, not having a permit to sell, not having a driver’s licence, etc. No one is above the law, not even the mighty ABS-CBN. It would be […]

Too much media coverage is a possible reason Vico Sotto is in trouble with the DOJ

Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto got in trouble with the law because of his statement reportedly allowing tricycles to continue operating in his city, which supposedly violates social distancing directives issued by the national government. Although it remains debatable whether or not Sotto violated the “Bayanihan Act”, it needs to be pointed out that he appeared […]

According to Rappler, Duterte government “targetted” it and “certain journalists” but shows no evidence

It’s time to fact check Rappler again. In a fluff piece meant primarily to feature “vice president” Leni Robredo’s address to “a forum of local and international journalists.” Included in this “report” is this passage… The Duterte administration has targeted certain journalists and news organizations like Rappler for their critical reporting on its policies, actions, […]
