Rappler CEO Maria Ressa is on a rampage following Bobi Tiglao’s explosive series of exposés on her dishonesty and hypocrisy. Tiglao points out that Ressa is an American, bashing the Philippines and that as part of her commitment to American citizenship, she is sworn to “absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity…Read More Maria Ressa TOO SCARED to file libel charges against Bobi Tiglao!
“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…Read More #DefendPressFreedom is just the latest snowflake fashion statement
De La Salle Philippines president Armin Luistro the other day issued a baldly presumptuous call to action to — presumably all — “LaSallians” to support embattled Rappler CEO Maria Ressa.

Those who insist that the arrest of Maria Ressa is an “attack on press freedom” are being stupid for continuing to criticise someone you think has the power to lock you up.

“Hold the line”. I find this so OA. Maria Ressa is simply not very smart. She can’t stay out of trouble. She should learn from the best.

I don’t even know why Maria Ressa is acting so…Read More Maria Ressa’s supporters cannot keep using #DefendPressFreedom to defend a law-breaker
If #DefendPressFreedom was the burning national issue Maria Ressa makes it out to be, why aren’t politicians making it a cornerstone of their campaign?
