Maria Ressa strikes again!

In an interview with an international media outfit - ABC News AustraliaRapper founder and chief executive officer Maria Ressa clais that the Lopez owned media network ha 11 million employees.

Speaking on ABC News Australia’s “The World” Saturday (May 9), Ressa said: “This is a network that has 11 million employees while I was still handling the news group.”

Netizen MJ Quiambao-Reyes, who posted a clip of Ressa’s interview on Twitter, said the Rappler executive’s claim was laughable at best.

“PINOCCHIA-NG-INA! Yung 11K nga malaking kalokohan na, naging 11M pa. And she calls herself a journalist,” Quiambao-Reyes tweeted.

With this major misrepresentation “fake news” Ressa’s credibility has crumbled into pieces as her Rappler is one of two designated by Facebook as fact checkers for content posted by other media entities.

Maria Ressa’s blunder, however, shows Rappler is as capable of spreading fake news as other media groups it’s flagging for alleged erroneous or misleading content.
