Krizette Chu stated that if Maria Ressa says that the case filed against her was due to Rappler’s expose on the drug war, Ressa should support her claims with proof.
The veteran blogger noted that she don’t remember any great and memorable Rappler piece, whether breaking news, expose, feature that shone the light on the drug war.
Here’s the Complete Statement of Krizette Laureta Chu:
Question: Rappler CEO Maria Ressa claims harassment is real reason for cases filed against her… cases that any lawyer may see is based and rooted on fact.
She says that it’s because she did exposés on the drug war.
But I dont remember any great and memorable Rappler piece, whether breaking, news, exposé, feature, that shone the light on the drug war.
All theyve been doing is debunking stories that nobody’s ever heard of. Or attacking Mocha.
Inquirer, to me, has been more aggressive reporting stories re drug war.
They even had their own Kill List, bannered dramatically shot photos, and has a higher “circulation” and engagement than Rappler.
Did I miss certain Rappler stories that Maria Ressa claims to be so groundbreaking she is now harassed?
