Rappler CEO Maria Ressa finally comes out; Rappler launches direct attack on Senator Cayetano et al

"Desperate times call for desperate measures," this must be the battle cry of all Rapplers out there.

They, led by their founder and CEO Maria Ressa, are becoming desperate for repeatedly failing to contain Duterte's rising popularity.

For the last 6 months, Rappler's engagements on social networks and website traffic have continued to plummet. They have been losing readers and money. According to estimates (unconfirmed because Rappler is too ashamed to publicly release their true numbers - so take these numbers with a grain of salt), Rappler has lost a total of approximately 7 million followers since many groups initiated campaigns to unfollow the social news network.

That must be where the desperation roots from.

Earlier today, Rappler did what others didn't expect. But not me, I've seen it coming. It's just a matter of time when they finally expose who their patrons are- the people they staunchly serve.

This GIF was included in a Rappler post seen at 2:42 PM of 29 Jan 2017. The GIF was accompanied by a caption, written by Rappler, that reads:

"Those born in the year of the dog are said to be faithful and loyal. They're also intenseful (sic) defensive with friends and family. Says a lot about dogs MOCHA USON BLOG, Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre, and Senator Alan Peter Cayetano."

Disgusting!

No decent publication claiming to be a legitimate source of news run by people claiming to be veteran journalists would dare put up something like this.
Maybe it is true that Rappler has been turned into a trolling center. For there is nothing more appropriate to describe it with this post.
This was posted on the Duterte Cayetano page in reaction to Rappler's post.
Here's the original post on Rappler's page. That particular post no longer exists as they have taken it down.

If there's anything that this incident proved, it gave us a clear picture of how big the heads of people at Rappler had gone. They are just so full of themselves.

And let's not forget what Maria Ressa, the ever glorious founder and CEO of Rappler, tried to do last year.

Rappler, a mere sorority blog, has just got tired of wearing that pretty face and exposed what they truly are: a bunch of intellectual fools who only serve the interests of their patrons- which are much bigger scums.

So why does Maria Ressa get all the whipping? She's the freaking boss. If her team does something, it's on her because it happened under his watch. Just like why PNoy should be punished for the Mamasapano operation.

With the resources they have, it's hard to believe this is a mere gaffe. I'd say, this is intentional. Just another attack on the legitimacy of the Duterte government, as they have been doing since the beginning of the Duterte Presidency.

The cartoon shouldn't have been made if they weren't intending to release it, right? They've spent their precious time on it for what? Internal memo?

UPDATE: Rappler has officially apologized. Read that story HERE.
