Sass Rogando Sasot Lambasts Rappler Writer Chay Hofileña for #LeniLeaks Cover Up


An avid supporter of Pres. Rody Duterte and one of social media's superstar blogger Sass Rogando Sasot lambasts Rappler writer Chay Hofileña for their alleged cover up of the controversial #LeniLeaks issue.


Veteran Rappler writer Chay Hofileña with fellow reporter Paige Occeñola and Pia Ranada wrote an investigative report about the alleged media propaganda of Secretary Martin Andanar.

Sasot exposed the biases of Rappler and it's reporter through an open letter issued to Chay Hofileña allegedly accusing the journalists of writing alternative facts covering the LeniLeaks issue. The European-based blogger shared some facts and known truths about the article published by Rappler.

The blogger who exposed the controversial LeniLeaks explained and rebutted the claims posted by Rappler on its website.

Sass Rogando Sasot also noted on her Open Letter to Rappler that there is indeed blur between propaganda and news, and it is very apparent on the Rappler article titled "Inside Martin Andanar's Mancave."


Here's the Revelations of Sass Rogando Sasot:

RAPPLER'S ALTERNATIVE FACT, #LeniLeaks COVER UP
Dear Chay Hofileña:

I've just read your article in Rappler (http://tinyurl.com/zqqe2lc). And napaka-obvious na naman ng ginagawa ninyong pagtatakip ng kung ano talaga ang nangyari. As a journalist, you have a duty to report news in a fair and balanced manner. Yet you didn't get my views AT ALL, hence your report is another presentation of an Orwellian "alternative fact."

1. First of all, you said: "It was Sasot who first posted about #LeniLeaks on Twitter in the evening of January 5. She followed up with a Facebook post afternoon of January 6, detailing the message of United States-based Loida Nicolas Lewis in a Yahoogroup about how to defend the Vice President from criticism and defeated vice presidential candidate Bongbong Marcos: “The only way to fight this evil plot to unseat Vice President Leni Robredo is to ask Duterte to Resign.”

---> Chay, while it is true that it was Loida who emailed the message "The only way to fight this evil plot to unseat Vice President Leni Robredo is to ask Duterte to Resign," it was NOT Loida Nicolas Lewis who posted the Social Media Strategy but the (SOCMED) of the Office of the Vice President of the Philippines.

The one who e-mailed the SOCMED Strategy is IMELDA NICOLAS who got it from a certain Pete Silva.

You are making it appear in your article that the SOCMED Strategy did NOT come from the Office of the Vice President but only from Loida. 

YOU ARE CREATING AN ALTERNATIVE FACT, and you are not using your resources, as a journalist, to investigate whether or not the SOCMED Strategy indeed came from the Office of the VP as IMELDA NICOLAS said in the heading of the email she forward to the Yahoogroups of the Global Filipino Diaspora Council.

That SOCIAL MEDIA Strategy, Chay, got spotted in at least two other locations, an FB PAGE and An FB GROUP allied with Leni Robredo:

1. Educators for Leni Robredo FB Page (sent by Agnes Enguito)
2. The Silent Majority FB Group (sent by Maria Bartolome)

Same text. Same heading: FROM OVP SOCMED. 

The OVP SOCMED strategy in the Educators for Leni Robredo HAS ALREADY BEEN DELETED. If it's harmless, why delete it?

The Silent Majority Group is a Private Group.

2. Because you are not reporting truthfully the SOCMED Strategy, you haven't asked the most important question in #LeniLeaks: "Ask Leni about the appropriateness of her office directly instructing her supporters to launch a counter attack on her critics." 

Remember Chay, it is the OFFICE OF THE VICE PRESIDENT ordering its so-called "communities" to launch a counter-attack against her critics, even to the extent of instructing its communities to call Sandro Marcos "stupid."

3. Yes, I cursed at Pia Ranada in FB Live Video. You said: "It was also Sasot who recently equated the punishment of fake news with the punishment of people who write fiction, generating a wave of criticism and negative reactions. Faraway in The Netherlands, she openly cursed Rappler’s Palace reporter Pia Ranada for her story on #LeniLeaks. Sasot’s post has since been taken down."

--- Una sa lahat, anong kinalaman noong "punishing fake news = punishing fiction" sa #LeniLeaks? Ikalawa, you didn't really report why I cursed at Pia Ranada. Ikatlo, if you could have just asked me, you would have known that that video was mass reported that's why it was taken down. Luckily, some of my readers saved it and uploaded it on You Tube: (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNqaIORZxHQ)

And Chay, do you know why I cursed at Pia Ranada? For precisely writing like you. Yup, there's a blur between propaganda and news, and it is very apparent in your article.
