Miriam's Sister Chides Rappler for Accusing Pro-Duterte Bloggers as Paid


The sister of the late Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago, Atty. Paula Defensor-Knack chides Rappler for accusing Pro-Duterte bloggers as paid propagandists of the Duterte administration. In the latest article of Rappler titled "State-sponsored hate: The rise of the pro-Duterte blogger" they accused Pro-Duterte bloggers as being paid.


Atty. Paula Knack chides Rappler as she explained that she was actually surprised to read the article posted by Rappler because she previously worked with her sister's Senate office and there are times that they had to make "abono" for volunteers.

The veteran lawyer noted that bloggers are actually competent and highly educated and you can even choose a favorite blogger according to style. Filipinos now are no longer dependent on yellow media because we get our opinions due to live broadcasts of events.

Here's the Complete Statement of Atty. Paula Knack:

"I was actually surprised to read this in other people's posts and claims of this and that. Since I have worked in my sister's Senate office, travel and food expenses really have to be budgeted. At that time, we lawyers had to make "abono" for volunteers and it does add up.

To their credit, the bloggers are actually competent and highly educated. You can choose a favorite blogger according to style. We are no longer dependent on yellow media. We get to form our opinions due to live broadcasts of events. Its a good thing, in my opinion."

Rappler accused that the most high-profile, vitriolic pro-Duterte bloggers were given government positions or hired as consultants using public funds. Bloggers who were Pro-Duterte propagandists are being given special treatment by the PCOO.

According to the alleged biased news network Rappler, Mocha Uson, RJ Nieto and Atty. Bruce Rivera are similar in various ways. Aside from their unwavering support for the President and their hateful tone and messaging, they are also bloggers that this admin has legitimized in various ways - profanity for all.
