“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
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”.

Dear trolls and DDS , check the definition of “alleged”. There will be a hearing. And until then the tax evasion is still a case. No decision yet. So take time to research. I…Read More Opposition “influencers” loyal to people and credentials rather than to principles and ideas
As expected, trust Rappler’s chi chi amigas halfway around the world to weigh in on its “plight” with a “report” on the matter. Alexandra Stevenson reports in the recent New York Times piece “Philippines Says It Will Charge Veteran Journalist Critical of Duterte” that the Philippine government intends to pursue a tax evasion case against…Read More As expected, the @NYTimes comes to Rappler’s rescue in its defense against tax evasion charges
