Default Philippines to charge critical news site with tax evasion

Giving Cheetolini ideas...

Rappler: Philippines to charge critical news site with tax evasion

Quote:
What is Rappler?
Founded in 2012 by Ms Ressa, a former CNN journalist, Rappler has grown a reputation for its hard-hitting, investigative journalism.

The online news site is one of the few Philippine media organisations openly critical of the country's leader, questioning his public statement's accuracy and particularly his deadly war of drugs.

I imagine Rump has already set up a secret intelligence group to destroy his opponents in the media through all kinds of things, so my guess is Duturte probably got the idea from him, not the other way around.

OUr media organizations need to be seized like the phone company and broken up into a thousand pieces. We should have thriving local journalist scenes, with independent reporting from varying points of view. The system we have is horribly corrupt - a Frankenstein's monster in comparison to the thriving free press our founding fathers imagined.

The "I'm not a fascist" calls for fascism.

I'm shocked.

The phone company is not a purveyor of political opinion, nor are they responsible for telling people what's going on.

And the founding fathers would have strung Alex Jones up from a tree.

Is trust busting activities fascism? Was breaking up the Bell System fascism?

I have no idea why you made this weird, out of context comment, but I have never been a follower of Alex Jones, and don't read any of his stories. I'd wager you're more aware of Alex Jones than I am.
