Netizen: “Pia Ranada and Rappler’s press freedom does not include the freedom to slander”

In a Facebook post, writer and photographer Bubuy Balangue, shared a photo of Rappler journalist Pia Ranada sitting beside President Rodrigo Duterte, and then proceeded to discuss how far Ranada has fallen.

He first said that before, Ranada was personally invited by the president himself to sit with him in the presidential table. This, he says, was a privilege only a few press people get to enjoy.


In addition to this, Balangue says that Ranada “bit off more than she can chew” when she wrote a story against Special Assistant to the President Bong Go. Balangue added that Ranada’s move was “slander”.
He also went on to say that Ranada has not behaved properly in dealing with the issue with Bong Go, and it is unfair that Ranada and the rest of the yellows are playing the victim card.

In conclusion, he says that the yellows are grasping at straws and have resorted to slander because of it.

“Seen here in the foreground is, yes, you guessed it; Pia Ranada Robles, Rappler’s Trojan Horse.

She was one of the guests (press people) invited to sit beside the President.

The invite personally came from PRRD. And they talked the entire night; an enviable privilege among the distinguished press.

Unfortunately, Ranada bit off more than she could chew and challenged PRRD’s courtesy by trying to burn Special Assistant to the President Bong Go with unfounded accusations backed up by a Post-It note. She tried to maliciously malign the Little President; Duterte’s closest knight.

There is no room for slander inside Malacañan. Huge mistake.Ika nga ni Mark Lopez:

“Classic case ng misplaced entitlement ng isang millennial. And ito din yung typical MEDIA ARROGANCE…” Nail on the head. Remember how Pia kept on shoving her mobile phone at the face of the PSG? She could’ve called POOC and clarified the issue. Instead, she opted to throw a fit like a little girl, harassed the PSG, created a scene despite allowed entrance to PCO Office.
And they always say we have to be critical with the admin. More like hypocritical. Here are the numbers they opted to sweep under the rug.
    • 26 journos killed in 2010-2015
  • Phils., 3rd deadliest in the WORLD, 2015
Yes, that’s more than 5 journos KILLED per year BEFORE Duterte admin. as reported by CNN in 2015.
After watching the video, how can you say PIA and Rappler, have the best interest for this country? Pia is doing a Harvey Dent. And how did Bong Go intervene? Asan ang details?”
