Maria Ressa TOO SCARED to file libel charges against Bobi Tiglao!

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 […]

#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 […]

De La Salle Philippines president Armin Luistro BURNT by LaSallian community following call to support Maria Ressa!

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. Let’s give our all out support as Lasallians to Rappler. Let’s defend press freedom. Let’s make our voices heard. Let’s vote with our feet and […]

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”.

Maria Ressa may end up behind bars thanks to a cybercrime law Noynoy Aquino signed! #DefendPressFreedom

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. The fact that you are still free despite criticising him makes you look stupid as well. Ressa wasn’t arrested because she criticised Duterte. […]

Maria Ressa’s supporters cannot keep using #DefendPressFreedom to defend a law-breaker

“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. Perhaps even a “minor-minor” blogger can teach her how to kick some ass without getting sued or arrested. I don’t even know why Maria Ressa is acting so […]

The “movement” to #DefendPressFreedom is all about Maria Ressa and not much else

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? The fact is, it isn’t relevant because it is a non-issue. Maria Ressa was arrested for charges related to her conduct as leader of a news media organisation. Her case has […]
