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 this year’s elections. The debate was a showcase of true “fearless” journalists throwing the hard questions at the debate participants as Netizens have attested to…
Mel Tiangco, Arnold Clavio, Howie Severino, Jessica Soho are fearless in throwing questions to the senatoriables 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻 so pleasant to see Vicky Morales and Pia Arcangel as moderators, they are so beautiful on screen… ✔️✔️✔️ #Debate2019
It does not take much to prove that Ressa is a liar and will probably take even less to prove she is not only a negligent CEO who let her shareholders, employees, and audience down, but also, very possibly, a crooked carpetbagger with a chip on her shoulder.
Kudos to the real journalism professionals who organised this debate and ensured that press freedom is not “dead” as some liars keep insisting.
