To @RapplerDotCom ‘thought leader’ @seclaudio: Apology accepted

You don’t need to be a perfect, sinless person to be a critic. You just need to be consistent and rational. More importantly, what you shouldn’t be is a shill like Rappler “thought leader” Sylvia Estrada Claudio who, in her latest “thought” piece I apologize for being a critic, issued this vow: As a way […]

Hey #CarlosConde ! Who Did You Say Was DOING LITTLE To Keep Journos Safe?

A friend warned me that calling you out on your unfair treatment of the Presidential Task Force on Media Security (PTFoMS) would encourage your meal ticket, the Human Rights Watch organization, to increase funding for your operations as its Asia Division researcher. I told them that I’ll risk it and make you appear to be […]

Here’s why ‘accreditation’ of bloggers and social media ‘practitioners’ is a ridiculous idea

Across the political spectrum, Filipinos still completely miss the point of social media and the so-called “free market of ideas” it represents.

But as a “journalist” Conde failed miserably. According to Rappler and GMA […]

Mae Paner a.k.a. Juana Change cannot win against the Philippine Army and Mocha Uson

The “debate” on whether it is right that the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) plans to sue shock “activist” Mae Paner (a.k.a. “Juana Change”) for disrespecting the uniform continues to rage. Paner donned a military costume as part of a “protest” spectacle she staged during the second State of the Nation Address delivered by […]

#SONA2017 proves that Duterte is LEGALLY popular!

The second State of the Nation Address (SONA) of Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte was a hit. Short of trawling the technical report that underpins it, that’s really the only key takeaway from the show Duterte put on yesterday, the 24th July 2017. It was a speech validated by applause and social media engagement around the […]
