Court Of Appeals Orders Rappler to Shut Down, err… Shut Up

5CBF365F-BBD8-4173-B5AB-035B64942E4CMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The Philippines’ Court of Appeals (CA) has just about had it with Rappler’s manipulation of its recent decision denying the online news source’s petition for a reversal of the SEC ruling revoking its media license.

Since the Court issued its ruling, Rappler has been publishing headlines and stories claiming that the Court has sided with Maria Ressa’s company, that the Court has said that SEC was wrong in revoking Rappler’s license, and that SEC was ordered to reconsider its revocation order — all of which are farthest from the truth.ECBC46CA-0707-4898-A94A-B516C4B912D7

So today the CA has issued a restraining order for Rappler to shut up and stop misinterpreting the 72-page Court decision.

Will the Court also issue another order for Rappler to shut down?

Stay tuned!
