Here is why Malacanang has EVERY cause to ban Rapplerette @PiaRanada from access to Malacanang

Why should Malacanang ban Rappler "reporter" Pia Ranada? Here are three key reasons among many others...

(1) Rappler has a case pending with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) related to violations of regulation that bars media organisations from receiving funds from foreign entities in exchange for some measure of management control.

(2) Rappler has been caught out defending the sloppy reporting of its "reporter" Carmela Fonbuena after she made baseless allegations that Special Assistant to the President Bong Go "intervened" in a Philippine Navy project.

(3) Rappler led the spreading of misinformation surrounding the alleged "victims" of the Duterte administration's "war on drugs" and has not responded to questions raised about the soundness of numbers that it "reported" and fed to the foreign media about so-called "extrajudicial killings" (EJKs).

Fellow Rapplerette Natashya Gutierrez now calls on the Malacanang Press Corps to show some "solidarity" with Rappler. Interesting times ahead. Perhaps the venerable pillars of the MPC should first recall the times Rapplerettes led by their CEO Maria Ressa thumbed their noses at all established conventions in the practice of journalism upheld by established news media organisations.


  1. 1) i thought there is an appeal and that Rappler could still do its work pending that.
    2) defending to you may sound horrible but offending other people is not?
    3)so if one "leads the spreading of misinormation" shall we just close all the fake news website that not once, not twice, not thrice but have successively printed or posted unsubstantiated claims and worse fully wrongful information about things that these people thought others will just swallow hook line ans sinker..
