Dissecting Rappler

OVERVIEW The embattled website Rappler.com have been through many issues and controversies since the dawn of the Duterte administration in the Philippines, alleged of misquoting the President, using fake photos, publishing fake news and propaganda, using questionable graphs and data, and putting various bloggers and netizens under bad light. In return, the President himself occasionally […]

Why Yellowtards need people like @PinoyAkoBlog to ‘say what they want to say’

Unfortunately for the pro-Duterte community, the recent exposés on the identities of those behind certain anti-Duterte websites – SilentNoMorePH and PinoyAkoBlog among them – did not have the desired effect. Rather than flush out others who are involved in what is widely believed to be a well-oiled information control machine, one of the persons identified, […]

Pinoy Ako Blog’s popularity with some academics at ADMU & UP proof of their mediocrity

Recently I sat back and watched while one of our former hecklers got a dose of her own medicine. I felt validated that I had proven again that the best defence against our detractors is patience and the discipline to allow them the time and space to dig their own graves. I always knew that […]

The time has come to have a conversation about someone’s face

When the quality of someone’s face matches the quality of her character, sometimes you really can’t help but comment on said face. The trouble is, talking about someone’s face is not very polite — because, to be fair, one can’t really help what one’s face looks like. Make up can enhance a face but by […]

How Jover Laurio (a.k.a. @PinoyAkoBlog) intellectually-bankrupted the Ateneo de Manila University

One would understand Yellowtards — even intelligent ones — getting behind “exposed” blogger Jover Laurio. She’s got an impressive list of connections to a who’s-who of Liberal Party (LP) honchos which, for people who are not much into thinking things through, is enough validation of her “credibility” as an “influencer”. Even people one would normally […]

President Duterte Should Appoint ThinkingPinoy RJ Nieto as his Communications Secretary

After seeing him and his fan on GRP repeatedly brag about the size of their social media reach and engagement, it’s high time for President Rodrigo Duterte to seriously consider replacing Martin Andanar with RJ Nieto. What would make Nieto think he is better than Andanar? Apart from his social media influence, he insinuates that […]

Jover Laurio, a.k.a. @PinoyAkoBlog: Don’t be fooled by the victim card she now plays

So now a certain Maria Josephina Vergina “Jover” Laurio has come out and revealed herself as the person behind the Yellowtard blog Pinoy Ako Blog (PAB). This is after a series of exposés published by blogger RJ Nieto (a.k.a. “Thinking Pinoy”) on the inner workings behind a vast network of anti-government blogs and fake news […]

Inquirer and Akbayan are ruining Philippine international relations

If there is one thing I hate about President Rodrigo Duterte’s recent tirade in which he threatened to cut ties with the European Union and the United Nations is he didn’t include cursing members of Philippine mainstream media and those from the Opposition who invited the so-called foreign delegates to visit the country. It has […]
