Lawyer from Cebu: Mainstream media is unfair to the DDS



Attorney Bruce Rivera of Argao, Cebu province explicitly wrote in his Facebook post how unjust the different media platforms are in delivering news about the supporters of the administration.

Guys, dito na lang tayo nakakabawi. Kontrolado nila ang mainstream media. Nakita niyo ba na nababalita ang any positive representation ng mga DDS. Wala po. Social media is able to neutralize the discussion," he said.

"Nakakita ba kayo ng host ng any news program na openly pro-Duterte? Kakaunti but their content is controlled. Mainstream media is unfair to the DDS,” he added.

Rivera also said that the members of the opposition such as Senator Antonio Trillanes IV uses mainstream media to attack and silence President Duterte allies, most especially Mocha Uson, the appointed assistant secretary of Presidential Communications Operations Office.

Trillanes is trying to silence pro-Duterte bloggers starting with Mocha while attacking anyone connected with Duterte using his immunity as shield. If he is successful in removing Mocha from the present status quo with your help because you happen not to like her, then do not blame us if there will come a time that even your blogs will be regulated and censored by bullies like Trillanes,” he said.

Moreover, the lawyer from Cebu defended Mocha Uson about the fake news she published in her infamous blogs.

Fake news man o hindi, hindi yun sapat para ipako siya sa cruz kasi walang tayong obligasyon maging exact and impartial sa mga posts natin. Blogs lang ito. Personal opinions na mali o hindi, peke o totoo. Ang mainstream media ang dapat may ganung obligasyon. At kung natutupad yun ng mainstream media, dun na sana kayo maging mapanghusga sa mga bloggers tulad ni Mocha,” he said.

He also emphasized in his last statement that all of us are entitled with our personal opinions.

Hindi news ito. Opinion ang blog hindi news. So, kung hahayaan ninyo magtagumpay si Trillanes na patahimikin si Mocha dahil kakasuhan at ihaharass, ipasara niyo na lang din ang social media. Kasi tayo na ang isusunod na patatahimikin,” he said.

In his full Facebook post, Rivera said,

THIS IS NOT ABOUT MOCHA

Alam ko na madami sa mga kaibigan ko ang nabwibwiset kay Mocha. In the same way na madami din ang nabwibwiset sa akin na tao. Normal yan.

But by supporting calls for Mocha to resign or wishing for her to be imprisoned is actually sending the wrong message. This is not an attack on Mocha.  This is an attack on social media by Trillanes who wants to silence free expression.

Guys, dito na lang tayo nakakabawi. Kontrolado nila ang mainstream media. Nakita niyo ba na nababalita ang any positive representation ng mga DDS. Wala po. Social media is able to neutralize the discussion. Nakakita ba kayo ng host ng any news program na openly pro-Duterte? Kakaunti but their content is controlled. Mainstream media is unfair to the DDS.

Hindi perfect si Mocha. Hindi niya nman sinasabi na perfect siya. Alam niyo na wala ako sa inner circle of bloggers na malapit kay Mocha. Pero tayong lahat na nasa social media ang pinaglalaban naming lalo na si Mocha. Fake news man o hindi, hindi yun sapat para ipako siya sa cruz kasi walang tayong obligasyon maging exact and impartial sa mga posts natin. Blogs lang ito. Personal opinions na mali o hindi, peke o totoo. Ang mainstream media ang dapat may ganung obligasyon. At kung natutupad yun ng mainstream media, dun n asana kayo maging mapanghusga sa mga bloggers tulad ni Mocha.

Entertainer lang siya. Bakla lang ako. Pero lahat tayo Pilipino. May sariling opinion. Hindi news ito. Opinion ang blog hindi news. So, kung hahayaan ninyo magtagumpay si Trillanes na patahimikin si Mocha dahil kakasuhan at ihaharass, ipasara niyo na lang din ang social media. Kasi tayo na ang isusunod na patatahimikin."
