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.

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.

Trust the media? They are making a lot of money off the COVID-19 pandemic thanks to their busywork “reporting” on the crisis.
