R. Tiglao Reveals How Rappler Misled EU, Human Rights Watch, CNN, BBC & The World


Veteran journalist Rigoberto Tiglao revealed on his latest column for The Manila Standard how Rappler misled the European Union, Human Rights Watch and major international news media outlets such as the CNN, BBC, Time Magazine, The New York Times as well as the world citizens as a whole.


R. Tiglao urged Rappler to stop using the 7,000 figures as summarily killed in the Philippines since Pres. Duterte took office and started his War on Drugs. The same figure was used by the European Union (EU), and other prominent news media outlet such as CNN, BBC, Time Magazine and The New York Times.

Rappler allegedly fabricated the 7,000 deaths which they claimed came from legitimate police operations and vigilante-style or unexplained killings (including deaths under investigation) from July 1, 2016 to January 31, 2017.

Here's a Breakdown of the alleged 7,000 EJK Deaths:




According to Tiglao the Rappler report is so patently wrong because it included 4,525 "deaths under investigation or investigation concluded," as related to the War on Drugs by Pres. Duterte - which they aren't.

The PNP already revealed that "victims of deaths under investigation or investigation concluded" refer to all murders and homicides in the Philippines, whether it is the result of road rage, robbery, or deadly love triangles - and not just those related to the anti-illegal drug campaign.

Rappler very wrongly and perhaps maliciously classified these deaths as due to Pres. Duterte's war against illegal drugs, therefore bloating three times the number of people killed in the course of that campaign.
