It seems Kris Aquino Inc is on the warpath and is mobilising its vast resource to crush the spread of information deemed damaging to the personal brand of the Crazy Rich One. An excerpt from correspondence sent out by law firm Divina Law to various media organisations was featured in a report published by PEP.ph…

Trust the Inquirer to issue a dishonest and downright lazy “report” on the recently-raging issue of revelations surrounding Kris Aquino’s financial ties with Yellowtard blogger Jover Laurio and possibly other Netizens. They classify their latest report under “Entertainment” and use the dishonest headline Kris Aquino’s critics just envious, says Locsin, which, evidently is meant to…

Motoring TV personality and blogger James Deakin who was a victim of a vicious online attack by Jover Laurio is calling on mainstream media to rectify damage done to his reputation.

I found it kind of strange that the retired Editor-in-Chief of the venerable Philippine Daily Inquirer would issue a public greeting to Yellowtard blogger Jover Laurio referring to her coming wedding knowing full well that a public tweet is fair game for anyone to respond to. So I thought I’d do just that and respond…

In a November 2018 interview with Kara Swisher, technology business journalist and co-founder of Recode, Maria Ressa admitted: “I think we’ve been forced to be activists now.” This is exactly the problem with journalism today which I laid out in my recent article, “What does Maria Ressa’s participation in New York City’s #NYE2018 festivities mean?”…

The fact that the owners of the Inquirer did not pay their taxes and rent properly is enough proof that some in media think they can hold politicians by the balls and get away with it. They have played king makers for decades particularly after the administration of former President Ferdinand Marcos. Indeed, only gullible…

The editors of TIME magazine come across as lazy for choosing people in their industry as People of the Year. Someone in their meeting probably had a brain wave and said “Let’s just praise journalists this year” for doing what they are supposed to be doing – their jobs. And so Maria Ressa is one…

The Twitter profile of @RapplerDotCom shows that it is more a cult of personality than a true news media organisation. What other news outlet banners an image of its CEO as part of its brand collateral? What Rappler should really be doing is reporting the news, not lionising its CEO who stands accused for tax…

The embattled CEO of Rappler continues her dramatics all the way to court to defend herself against tax evasion charges. In a recent tweet, Maria Ressa insisted that these are charges for crimes she “didn’t commit”. But, really, Ressa’s innocence or guilt on the matter of her tax evasion charges is not for anyone to…
