How the #BabaeAko "movement" REALLY made it to @TIME's list of global "influential" people

Yellowtards are celebrating the featuring of the Philippine Opposition's feminist social media "cause" dubbed "#BabaeAko" on TIME Magazine's list of influential people. An article on BlogWatch explains how this was "achieved"...

The contenders of Time’s most influential people were evaluated by looking at their global impact on social media and their overall ability to drive news. The local news first picked it up.

Well now, so that's why the #BabaeAko mob were so adept at meeting the "overall ability to drive news" criterion. The Philippine corporate news media industry, if we recall, is renowned for the slant it routinely affords to the Philippine Opposition led by the Yellowtards.

So, getting an 'activist' cause that attacks Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte a lot of media mileage in the Philippines is easy-peasy given the 'cooperative' media environment in the Philippines. That no tall achievement. That's just plain old garden variety Filipino patronage at work.
