Rappler reporter Pia Ranada is still on the move. In a press conference on Tuesday night with President Rody Duterte, Pia took the mic to ask Duterte’s comment on press freedom and the Rappler’s ownership issue.
The President knew it coming so he brought something a ‘doze of medicine’ that Pia should take. The President showed a printed news clip wrote by Rappler with a malicious and erroneous headline accusing his executive assistant Bong Go.
“Wag na tayong lumayo pa. Oh heto, ‘Bong Go intervenes in P15.5 billion project to acquire Ph warships’ said Duterte as he reads a Rappler’s headline before the media.
On Pia’s face, Duterte explained how Pia’s company [rappler] abused the privilege the freedom of the press and the constitution. Rappler was given a luxury of time over the years to malign and attack Duterte’s government. He said it’s ok as long as no foreign entity intervenes mass media in the country as stated by the law.
Watch the entire one on one with Pia and President Duterte:
