Teddy Locsin offers assistance to Pinoy voters who wish to migrate after the loss of their election bets

  • ‘How to migrate’ was the top search result after the election results
  • Pinoys search ways on ‘how to migrate’ after election results
  • People are considering migration

A lot of people were disappointed with the election results, even if some were still unofficial. Their candidates did not win. They also know that some of the candidates who won have a notorious history, politically speaking.

As the unofficial results came, data from Google Trend showed that Filipinos where searching ‘how to migrate’ and ‘migrate’ on the search engines.

Netizens also rationalized this. Some really meant on migrating, but mostly were joking. This shows how disappointed the people are with the results.

The same thing happened when Donald Trump was winning in the 2016 election. Americans were also searching on how to migrate to Canada and other countries.

Maria Ressa guffaws at Jay Sonza’s questioning about her citizenship

  • Jay Sonza was questioning Ressa’s citizenship as being  Filipino by stating that both her parents were Indonesians
  • His post was given attention by most of the supporters of Maria Ressa in defending that she is truly a Filipino with dual citizenship as an American
  • Ressa had lived in Jakarta for a decade and clarified that she has dual citizenship as an American and a Filipino

Last February 20, Jay Sonza posted on his Twitter account a message questioning the citizenship of the co-founder of Rappler, Maria Ressa, who’s currently facing a cyber-libel case and 5 counts of tax evasion.

Jay Sonza was questioning Ressa’s citizenship of being Filipino by stating that both her parents were Indonesians. And he also wrote that she uses her US passport to gain support from the American Embassy, in declaring that Ressa as their citizen should be given a fair trial for her twin criminal cases here in the Philippines.

His post was given attention by most of the supporters of Maria Ressa in defending that she is truly a Filipino, with dual citizenship as American.

A comment also advised Jay Sonza to give a more reliable source to support his statement.

But there are also those that support Jay Sonza’s Twitter post – believing she is not a Filipino citizen.

On the other side, Maria Ressa also posted a reply when @jamesamparo763 addressed the question in clarifying if her parents were really Indonesians and if she is an American citizen.

This caught her attention and she wrote a post giving a direct answer to the question that her parents were not Indonesians. That it was only her who had lived in Jakarta for a decade and also clarified that she has dual citizenship as an American and Filipino.

The support from the people had just poured out for her statement justifying her citizenship that some even find more sources from the internet to contradict the supporters of Jay Sonza.

Some have speculated that the reason for Jay Sonza questioning her citizenship was to show his support to the Duterte administration.

Manny Castañeda slams Maria Ressa: “Sympathy card will not work here”

[mashshare]
  • Director Manny Castañeda posted about Maria Ressa’s tax evasion case.
  • He pointed out that Ressa has “harassed” the government via Rappler.

Actor and director Manny Castañeda slammed Rappler Holdings CEO Maria Ressa, saying that she and her supporters are “quick to howl” whenever the law goes against them.

In a public facebook post dated December 4, he shared his sentiments and disappointment toward Ressa.

“Whereas, she enjoyed and applied to the hilt the freedom of expression provided in a democratic society when she relentlessly harassed government with her malicious tirades via Rappler and to this day continues to enjoy such freedom from a government she claims to be authoritarian.”

Castañeda mentioned the journalist’s recent controversy. Ressa is being accused of tax evasion filed by the Bureau of Internal Revenue.

She has filed a joint counter-affidavit before the Department of Justice in response to the allegation.

“This claim, this charge, is absolutely false. I’ve called it ludicrous. I’ve called it ridiculous. I’ve said that it shows ill intent of intimidation and harassment or just plain incompetence.

“I appeal to their sense of upholding the Constitution and letting journalists do their jobs.”

Castañeda said that what Ressa has to do is to “follow the democratic process to prove her innocence.

Whenever the law does not go their way, Maria Ressa, together with her supporters, are quick to howl cliche catchphrase…

Posted by Manny Castaneda on Monday, December 3, 2018

He then added that the CEO has received money from a foreign donor to “discredit” and “consequently destabilize or even overthrow” the current administration.

“And let us not forget, Maria Ressa is also an American citizen. Her actions reveal where her loyalty truly lies.”

  • Maria Ressa slammed on Ilda Ignacio’s tweet.
  • The Rappler chief executive officer (CEO) called Ignacio a ‘minor blogger’ after saying that the information she stated was wrong.

The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) has granted Rappler‘s Maria Ressa the 2018 Gwen Ifill Press Freedom Award on November 20.

But not everyone agrees that Ressa deserved that award. Get Real Philippines‘ owner, Ilda Ignacio, said that the Rappler journalist should have followed the law as soon as she registered the website.

“She violated the law on foreign media ownership and did not pay right taxes.”

She was talking about the Department of Justice indicating Rappler Holdings Corporation of tax evasion as when the site issued their Philippine Depository Receipts (PDRs), as “it gained close to P162.5 million from the transaction, which it failed to declare in its tax return.”

Ressa then slammed Ignacio, saying that the information she tweeted is false and proceeded to call her a “minor minor blogger”

Ignacio replied, calling Ressa an “elitist” and a “credentialist”. She added that the Rappler CEO thought that she’s a propagandist just because she has a different claim regarding the issue.

“I’m a minor minor blogger just because…I have no idea why she thinks I’m a minor minor blogger.” she said.

Netizens have also expressed their disappointment regarding Ressa’s tweet, mentioning her advocacy regarding citizen journalism.

“Ang tawag dito – arrogant ignorance.” Maria Ressa answers Rappler hater

“Ang tawag dito – arrogant ignorance.” Maria Ressa answers Rappler hater

[mashshare]
  • Maria Ressa fired back at Rappler hater implying that they’re covering the Liberal Party’s early campaigning.
  • She explained that every party gets coverage whenever they announce their political line-up.

Rappler Chief Executive Officer Maria Ressa answered a netizen on Twitter.

Twitter user named Zephan Jade Yaru accused the Liberal Party of early campaigning. The netizen was implying that the media have been accusing the Duterte administration of early campaigning but proceeded to report about the other parties.

Hay Naku RAPPLER @mariaressa @piaranada ehh ano ang tawag nyo sa ginagawa ng LP ngayon?! diba yun “EARLY CAMPAIGNING” . Tama na Halata na masyado! @ABSCBNNews @gmanews @PTVph @cnnphilippines @GMA_NEWStv @News5AKSYON

Ressa clapped back, saying that the tweet is a sample of “arrogant ignorance” as every party gets coverage whenever it unveils its political slate.

Hindi. Ang tawag dito – arrogant ignorance. Every party gets coverage when it unveils its political slate. If you follow earlier, we all covered the admin slate. Just remember the saying: what you post often tells the world exactly how much … or how LITTLE … you actually know

Other Twitter users backed Ressa, saying that Rappler also had coverage for Duterte last election.

Noong last election nga nakarami ng coverage si Duterte kay Rappler, isa rin sila nagpanalo kay Digong after ng election galit na si Pdutz lalo na DDS 

Na- erased sa FB ang mga DDS dito naman sa tweeter gustong mag fake news

 

Early campaigning? I have two words for you: bong go. And don’t make me raise my middle finger.

I know this to be true – since the start of the current administration undoing a lot of misconceptions and miseducation has been the norm here on Twitter. Andami kasi talagang wala nang kwentang mag-isip, bastos to the hilt pa.
