Dont believe Rappler's garbage! : Duterte slams Rappler again for its foreign ownership and non payment of tax

Rappler is the news again after President Rodrigo Roa Duterte during his one on one exclusive interview with Russian Today slammed its role in destabilizing his government.

Duterte describes the news website as foreign owned and funded by the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

“You know, please do not believe the media, especially the Rappler, the mouthpiece of the CIA and the US,” Duterte told Russia Today when asked about his alleged absence during the eruption of Taal Volcano in Batangas.

“I was there before they made the announcement. I was there two days earlier then I went home to Davao to rest. When I came back last night, I went directly again to the evacuation areas. So, do not believe that kind of garbage that’s being dished out by Rappler,” he added.

Rappler which is headed by US citizen Maria Ressa has been banned from covering all presidential events since March 2018, is not 100% Filipino owned a direct violation as mandated by the 1986 Constitution and has existing tax obligation in favor of government.

“They have not paid their taxes, and we are questioning them because media must be 100 percent owned by the country, the Philippines.
“We found out that, for one, it’s owned by the Americans so it does violate the Constitution which says that the media or the press should be owned 100 percent by Filipinos,” he said.
