MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Online ‘news source’ Rappler likes to ask readers nonsensical questions in its ICYMI (In Case You Missed It) series, and one such question was asking what people’s thoughts were regarding Interior Secretary Eduardo Año’s recent statement that the sin of Nuezca is not the sin of the Entire Philippine National Police.
Nuezca is the police officer who fatally shot a neighbor mother and son in Tarlac over a supposed argument on the right of way.
In response, many netizens pointed out that the crime of Maria Ressa (Rappler’s CEO) is not the crime of all journalists.
Ressa was convicted of cyber libel and is facing other criminal charges, inclusion tax evasion.
Moral of the story: don’t ask questions that could get back right at you!
