Misleading @gmanews report by Llanesca T. Panti is inciting hatred for foreign workers among Filipinos

A report published on the GMA News Online website states, “Illegal foreign workers should not be allowed to steal jobs from Filipinos, Vice President Leni Robredo said Tuesday.” However there seems to be nothing in what is quoted verbatim from Robredo’s statements in the report itself that shows she was referring to illegal aliens when […]

#DefendPressFreedom is just the latest snowflake fashion statement

“Attack on press freedom”. Seriously? If that notion even remotely made sense, then there’d be an industry-wide backlash. The fact is, there isn’t one. It’s really just Rappler CEO Maria Ressa raising a big stink about this mythological “attack”. Why does Maria Ressa believe “press freedom” is “under attack”? Perhaps it is because her failed […]

Inquirer editor John Nery’s (@jnery_newsstand) intelligence-insulting FAQs on Maria Ressa’s “press freedom” circus

Inquirer editor John Nery asks himself a simple question in his column today, Assault on press freedom? Q and A: “If the cyberlibel case [against Maria Ressa] was presumed regular, why is it an assault on press freedom?” You’d think Nery would take this opportunity to articulate a really precise answer to this question to […]

Maria Ressa dismisses her critics as “trolls”, believes she holds a monopoly on being RIGHT!

Maria Ressa dismisses Filipinos who challenge her claim that she is being targeted by the Duterte government by labelling them as “trolls” who are merely following “marching orders”. That’s like saying her critics are all non-humans who have nothing of any worth to say. This is the height of arrogance. It is indeed fitting that […]

“Press freedom” is not the Philippines’ most important issue. It really isn’t.

If one uses Twitter to sample the general sentiment of the Filipino public, you’d think “press freedom” is top of mind for the majority of Filipinos. With the shrillness of the rhetoric of “activists” that populate social media, one would be forgiven in thinking that “press freedom” is the game-changing issue that will determine this […]

Maria Ressa needs to take a break from #DefendPressFreedom — because she is the CEO of Rappler!

If I were a shareholder of “social news network” Rappler, I’d be really pissed. You hire and pay a CEO big bucks and what does she do? She gets my company into a heap of tax trouble and exposes it to a big libel case. Worst of all, she gets arrested and spends most of […]

#DefendPressFreedom “activists” shriek “stop the attacks”. But no such “attacks” exist!

Dressed in black, not in their traditional yellow for some reason, the usual faces representing the usual “activism” is fired up once again. But, really, what are they on fire about? That’s the million-peso question. The sheer volume and shrillness of the noise surrounding what is essentially the vacuous notion of some sort of “attack […]

Did Maria Ressa LIE to the Associated Press (@AP) regarding her arrest? #DefendPressFreedom

The Associated Press today announced the deletion of a tweet posted Wednesday and implied that it was misled by statements provider by Rappler CEO Maria Ressa… The AP deleted a Wednesday tweet on journalist Maria Ressa’s arrest. It incorrectly said she was arrested for criticizing Philippine President Duterte. Authorities said she was arrested over a […]

Here’s why Jiggy Manicad is an EXCEPTIONAL politician…

Yellowtards are of the belief that the numerous journalism awards won by journalist-turned-politician Jiggy Manicad are no longer valid testaments to his professional chops. “Human rights” honcho Caloy Conde, for example, believes that the “100 journalism awards [Manicad] received don’t mean shit the moment [he] misused them to support this madman [current Philippine President Rodrigo […]

#Debate2019 proved that “press freedom” is NOT “under threat” and that Maria Ressa is a LIAR!

As everyone knows by now, Rappler CEO Maria Ressa is on a global campaign to propagate a lie — that “press freedom” in the Philippines is under threat and that it may, possibly, be already dead. The most recent proof that Ressa is full of shit is the recently-transpired debate held between senatorial candidates in […]
