As Rappler CEO Maria Ressa defends her company’s news writing style, Syet Da Pwet page’s criticism points out that Rappler’s news tends to cite unverifiable or unverified sources.


Ressa discredited criticisms on their news reports on ISIS saying that, “we didn’t report it was ISIS. We reported it was claimed by ISIS --- big difference.”

A netizen was quick to retort, “you only claim to be responsible journalists. You’re not actually responsible journalists --- big difference.”


Syet Da Pwet’s page explained that Rappler’s tendency to report hearsay is rooted in their need to propagate an image of “gloom and doom” at the expense of unreliable information.

Its style of writing hits on the intellect of the readers and makes overt their propaganda. The page even pointed out that their “mababaw” excuses are not enough to cover their biases.

On the claims of Ressa that their information was explicitly stated as “claimed by ISIS”, the page argues that it is not even information directly taken from ISIS but from wire feed of other news.

In its full post on Facebook, Syet Da Pwet said,

"Ano ba ang gjnagawa ng mga newsmen? Hindi ba i-report ang sinasabi at ginagawa ng iba?

Eh talagang hindi niyo i-re-report na ISIS yun, malay niyo ba kung sino yun. I-re-report ninyo yung sasabihin ng otoridad. O kaya verifiable source.

Eh ni hindi claim ng ISIS yung report niyo kundi wire feed ng Agence France Press na galing sa post ng SITE na narinig nila sa chatter ng mga terorista.

Ilang layers ng hearsay yung pinanggalingan ng report ninyo? Eh kahit anong anggulo tsismis yun eh!

You know what the big difference here is? It is the fact that in your rush to create a scenario of gloom and doom you latch on to any information even if it is unverified and patently false.

And when you are caught in your lie and propaganda you mouth off excuses that are not only "mababaw" but also insults the intelligence of the very people you claim to serve.

Kaya nung nasa CNN ka pa laging pinadadala si Amanpour para palitan ka sa coverage mo dahil sa ugali mo na yan eh."
