Spread of DISINFORMATION during #SEAGames2019 final NAIL on the coffin of mainstream media

Outrage continues to grow over the astounding breach of public trust over the hand the Philippines’ mainstream media played in the spread of disinformation surrounding the 2019 Southeast Asian Games. Renowned Rappler “reporter” Rambo Talabong, for example, continues to stand by his tweet where he asserts kikiam (a kind of pork-filled sausage of some sort) […]

After going all out to “trend” the #SEAGamesfail hashtag, Yellowtards are now CREDITTING THEMSELVES for the private sector stepping up to support the Southeast Asian Games effort.

It’s time the Opposition seriously […]

The Philippine Opposition need move up from mere GIF and meme “activism”

“GIF” stands for Graphics Interchange Format. It is a format that allows images to be animated within a single data file. Back in the early days of the Net, they were used to adorn websites with the characteristic bells and whistles of the day and even used for banner ads. As bandwidth and memory became […]

Carlos Celdran (@CarlosCeldran) mocks GRP about popularity. Here are the FACTS about his “popularity”…

I tweeted earlier about people having a problem with us sharing GRP articles on social media. Then the fugitive Carlos Celdran butted into the convo and now accuses me of being “obsessed” with him and misconstruing what I said. For context, we share articles relevant to the issue or topic being discussed. Some of our […]

Social media “influencers” are messing up the environment and young minds by promoting TRAVEL

I mean, really, how much leisure travelling must one be doing? Nowadays one is made out to be some sort of loser when they don’t make use of a long weekend, an extended break from work, or time off in between jobs to do “a bit of travelling”. Take this one, for example… September, we […]

Maria Ressa appeals to Facebook for help to silence her critics!

I read an article about Rappler CEO Maria Ressa on the Australian Financial Review where she is quoted appealing to Facebook to help hold Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte to account. She said “the only people who can actually do something to level the playing field in the short-term are the social media platforms”. Huh? Facebook […]

Maria Ressa on a BLOCKING spree as people she dismisses as “trolls” seek clarification

Maria Ressa is on the digital run shooting frantic defensive tweets at people she calls “trolls”. Most of these are merely asking her to clarify the statements she made in last week’s conference on “media freedom” held in London. A troll patrol is assigned to any @mariaressa tweets or anyone defending her. https://t.co/nGoOQ7ZUYQ — Noemi […]

Who does Maria Ressa THINK she is calling people “trolls”?

Rappler CEO Maria Ressa has been on a years-long crusade telling anyone who would listen how she and the Philippines’ journalism profession are “under attack”. She summarily labels anyone who is not on her side as “trolls”. But who is she to decide who are trolls and who aren’t? Did some sort of God of […]

Compared to de Quiros, Richard Heydarian (@RicHeydarian) is nothing but a second-rate, trying hard copycat

There’s been a lot of chatter surrounding “thought leader” Richard Heydarian’s plagiarisation of the eminent Yellowtard writer Conrado de Quiros’s groundbreaking blank Inquirer article written way back in 2004. Thing is 2004, counting in digital years, practically sits on a different geological timeframe as 2019. Back then, before social media became a whole generation’s opiate, […]

According to the Yellowtard @MrFrankBaraan, Twitter users are smart “fact checkers” and Facebook users are stupid trolls!

In a recent tweet, the self-described “human rights activist” and “democracy advocate” issued his assessment of the intelligence of members of the two big social media platforms… Not only is he calling Facebook users stupid, he is also accusing them of being paid hacks funded by Filipino taxpayers. One wonders a very basic wonder… Does […]
