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…Read More #DefendPressFreedom “activists” shriek “stop the attacks”. But no such “attacks” exist!
The intellectually-bankrupt argument is sadly all-too-familiar — an accusation of “fake news” that, when challenged, reveals very little substance nor basis. Here is one such recent example. A challenge mounted by an inquisitive Netizen asking simple child-like questions ensues over a series of tweets… …but the bitter end, as far as any challenge to the…Read More The dumb argument style of Fake News Crybabies like @MrsUnlawyer is the reason why Maria Ressa is obsolete
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…Read More Did Maria Ressa LIE to the Associated Press (@AP) regarding her arrest? #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.…Read More Maria Ressa may end up behind bars thanks to a cybercrime law Noynoy Aquino signed! #DefendPressFreedom
“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…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? 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…Read More The “movement” to #DefendPressFreedom is all about Maria Ressa and not much else
Members of the community of cluckity Netizens that orbit the cult of personality of Maria Ressa, CEO of “social news network” Rappler are up in arms. As I write this, agents of the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) are reportedly serving a warrant of arrest and taking Ressa to custody for offenses related to libel.…Read More Arrest of Rappler CEO Maria Ressa is NOT an “attack on press freedom”. Not at all!
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…Read More #Debate2019 proved that “press freedom” is NOT “under threat” and that Maria Ressa is a LIAR!
Read this idiotic TIME Magazine article. It presumes to “report” on Fake News Crybaby and Rappler CEO Maria Ressa claiming that “the looming threat of tax evasion charges against prominent Philippine journalist Maria Ressa has prompted an outpouring of support” mainly coming from (who else?) “journalists around the world”. But of course. “Journalists” are the…Read More According to @TIME Magazine, Rappler CEO Maria Ressa is being harassed for being a Tax Evader!
Is Philippine media REALLY under threat? Opposition “thought leaders” keep shrieking that it is. But there seems to be absolutely no evidence that this is true. At best, the notion remains DEBATABLE. Trouble is, Yellowtards aren’t willing to have that debate and prefer, instead, to latch on to their mere beliefs and the preachings of…Read More People who claim “press freedom” is “under threat” are LIARS
