Senator Bet Glenn Chong: Lucky to be Disowned by BBM as Ressa Bails Out

Senator


By: Elena Grace Flores

Atty. Glenn Chong, Katipunan ng Demokratikong Pilipino (KDP) Candidate for Senator this 2019 election lashes back to Rappler’s Maria Ressa’s previous headline that Bongbong Marcos disowns him. He said that he is lucky to be disowned because it made him credible when it comes to his clean election advocacy. Whereas, the presumptive VP Leni Robredo’s defender Maria Ressa has to bail out after her arrest due to tax evasion cases.

Chong’s Challenge

Atty. Chong said that the camp of Leni Robredo tries to mislead the Supreme Court when she files another motion for consideration on her complaint to him that he is affiliated with Bongbong Marcos.  She is lying again when she said that the latter did not answer her accusation. This is on how he got the Ragay data that show election anomalies against BBM’s opponent. In fact, it is in Paragraphs 33 to 42. It is clear in Paragraphs 41 at 42, where all her questions are answered. The only problem according to Chong is – they keep on lying to the public to suit their own narrative. He challenges Robredo that if he’s wrong, to just charge him in court.


Warrant of Arrest for Ressa

Maria Ressa evades arrest by posting bail at a Pasig City Regional Trial Court. Her charge is tax evasion. Judge Danilo Buemio of Pasig RTC Branch 265 issues a warrant for Ressa’s arrest. This is for violation of Section 255 of the National Internal Revenue Code of 1997. The bail is set at P60,000.


Out on Bail

Tagum City Executive Judge Arlene Palabrica ordered the release after their lawyers posted a total bail of P1,452,600. Davao del Norte police “initially wanted to defy the order.” The police argued that the P80,000 bail was for the child abuse charges only. It does not include the kidnapping and human trafficking charges. They are still under investigation.



A Rebel’s Mentality

Ressa maintains that the cases had no basis. She said that her company pays the right taxes. Unless the government reclassifies it into a stock brokerage agency given that it has foreign investors. Are the cases the response to its anti-government coverage? “I think it is a way of sending a signal that we have to be careful. That’s part of what they want to do,” she added.

Digital Karma

Chong mocks Ressa for bringing her own mugshots. He thought that she’s brave enough to face the consequences of her actions. Being the aid of the country’s greatest liar, she can end up a lot worse than that. Her group is responsible for creating destructive media propaganda not just against the President but the country itself. They never failed to give Robredo a massive coverage while she reports many lies not just locally but internationally.

Social Media Democracy Marks Bongbong Marcos’ VP Recount Victory

democracy





welcome By: Elena Grace Flores

Social media like Facebook are democracy in their purest form. Whatever is popular wins over there. This is contrary to the report of Rappler CEO, Maria Ressa. These platforms are not newsmakers but mediums for public opinions. Popular topics go viral because of major interests by the people. Mainstream media simply have a different system. If VP Leni Robredo’s Camp cannot topple Bongbong Marcos online despite their many trolls and fake news, he is, therefore, the real winner for the post. The recount on his electoral protest against Robredo is in February 2018.

Like and Share Functionality

Facebook has no liability over the spread of “fake news” because it does not produce them. Users spread them by clicking on the “Like” and “Share” buttons of the platform. This proves to show that such sentiments are from real people. One tends to share a favorable news from a friend.




Liberals’ Undermining Democracy

Liberals like Ressa and their media counterparts locally and in the United States are famous for blaming others for their own doings. VP Leni Robredo always refers to the alleged trolls and fake news of Bongbong Marcos whenever she suffers low ratings. However, she and Ressa never question Silent No More that favors them. They attack the majority who are against them. This is not a democracy.




Du30’s Endorsement Helped Bongbong Marcos

President Rodrigo Du30 did not win because of social media propaganda. His approval rating is still high after almost two years in power. That is not achievable if his popularity is based on lies. In fact, his endorsement of Bongbong Marcos as his successor makes the latter as the preferred VP. He is likely to win the recount for his electoral protest against Robredo if Facebook data is consistent with his number of votes.
