By: Elena Grace Flores Atty. Trixie Cruz-Angeles pities ex-CNN reporter, Maria Ressa because she has lost control of the media because of social media. Real people can already counteract all her misinformation online. This is in time for the 2019 election when Filipinos have to choose vital government lawmakers particularly senators and district representatives in the Congress. Ressa’s tweet triggers them to expose themselves just to prove that they are real people behind the Du30 administration who is in favor of Bongbong Marcos and not trolls as per her claim. z

[VIDEO]: Atty Trixie Cruz Angeles is meeting up with dds bloggers. They are reals. They are not fakes, they are not paid trolls as Maria Ressa of Rappler insists to the world. Follow Trixie Cruz Angels on FaceBook:
The 18th Congress
The 2019 elections for the House of Representatives of the Philippines will be for the 35th lower house in the Philippines and will be held on May 13, 2019. All seats in the House of Representatives of the Philippines will be contested. The winners will serve in the 18th Congress of the Philippines from June 30, 2019, to June 30, 2022.
Maria Ressa is Public Enemy No. 1
International media picks up Ressa’s story that there are alleged cases of harassing journalists as one of the President’s specialties. They even call Du30 the strongman president of the Philippines. They depict him as someone who goes after her, a former CNN reporter and a founder of the online news site Rappler. Her news platform caters to just criticize the current government, his works, and allies. Atty, She has criminal charges because of tax evasion and libel. She also faces criticisms through Facebook because of the lies that she spread out.
Real People and NOT Trolls
Supporters of Du30 who are also Pro-Marcos troop to the office of news website Rappler to prove to its chief that they are “not trolls.” Trolls refer to netizens employed to attack using inflammatory statements or even fake information on social media. Du30 supporter Mark Lopez made the visit following Ressa’s tweet last week that trolls were deployed to misinform her friends and colleagues such as former United States Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and CNN journalist Christiane Amanpour.
In the Light of Marcos’ VP Recount
Ressa and her cohorts are making noise to cover up the ongoing recount of Bongbong Marcos. The presumptive vice president, Leni Robredo already opposes the recount in Mindanao. Marcos’ counsel, lawyer Vic Rodriguez dismisses the statements of Macalintal that Marcos’ evidence of fraud are not substantial. “We believe that all statements coming from Macalintal are nothing but a drive to earn “media mileage” in his quixotic effort to bring relevance to the carcasses of his Senate bid,” Rodriguez said. He added that it is only the tribunal that can decide on the merits of the electoral protest of Marcos against Robredo.
The Problem of Maria Ressa
Atty. Trixie nails it when she said that the problem with Maria Ressa is that, she does not respect opposing views. She has become a public enemy number one because of her false reports. It is in fact not Du30 who suppresses freedom of speech but Ressa’s network that aims to mislead people locally and abroad to destabilize a government that she doesn’t like. Unfortunately for Ressa, common Filipinos do not hesitate to come out of the open to defend the truth because social media has allowed them to voice out, at last for the longest time.
