Maria Ressa convicted for cyberlibel while Mocha Uson roams free for fake news, netizens react

Uson’s constant spreading of fake news and the conviction of Ressa has been seen as an attack on press freedom.

Rappler CEO Maria Ressa was just convicted of cyber libel with a fine of P200,000.

This verdict and the fact that Deputy Executive Director of the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) Mocha Uson has yet to be punished for spreading fake news has disturbed netizens.

People online pointed out that Duterte allies such as Kiko Pimentel and Major General Debold Sinas were also not punished for committing even bigger violations during the ECQ in Metro Manila.

Uson has been dubbed the ‘Queen of Fake News’ for constantly spreading false information but has never been apprehended for doing such.
