MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Dozens of editors and staff of college newspapers opposite the country staged a convene in Mendiola yesterday to reject Rappler’s Maria Ressa for giving the legitimate press a “bad name.”
Members of the College Editors Guild of the Philippines criticized Ressa for using Press Freedom as an forgive to violate the elemental law of the land. (The 1987 Philippine Constitution prohibits tenure of news media by non-Filipinos.)
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) recently revoked Rappler’s permit since unfamiliar investors have a interest in the company.
In disowning Ressa and her battlecry of “suppression of Press Freedom,” the tyro reporters told The Adobo Chronicles that Ressa is giving the legitimate Press a “bad rap.”
