Netizens Criticizes Sen. Grace Poe for Allegedly Defending Rappler's Pia Ranada After Ban in Malacanang


Sen. Grace Poe got the ire of some netizens after she allegedly defended Rappler's Pia Ranada after the decision of Pres. Rody Duterte to ban the controversial Rappler reporter inside Malacanang.


Although Pia Ranada can still cover the press briefing at the New Executive Building she is no longer allowed to enter the other premises of the Palace.

Sen. Grace poe released an official statement that says Malacanang should explained the reasons why Pia Ranada was banned from entering Malacanang Palace. She was quoted as saying "Magpaliwanag kay. Bakit hindi pinapasok si Pia sa Palasyo."

This is not the first time that Sen. Grace Poe defended Rappler, the alleged media company who is funded by some international companies according to SEC, the Senator also came to the rescue of Rappler when PCOO Asec Mocha Uson urged the Malacanang Press Corps to re-classify Rappler as a blog and not as a media entity.

Meanwhile, Here's the Complete Statement of Sen. Grace Poe Defending Rappler:

"The move to marginalize Rappler in its coverage of the Palace and to demand the legal authority of the Malacanang Press Corps to cover the President are both misplaced and inconsistent with the essence of press freedom and the people’s right to be informed of the President’s activities and pronouncements."

"A strong and independent press can only help build a vibrant democracy. As part of an administration that prides itself [with] passing the first FOI executive order, the PCOO should welcome objective and fair coverage from the press. We must remember that even criticism is necessary if we want an open and transparent government."

The statement of Sen. Grace Poe did not sit well among the supporters of Pres. Rody Duterte as some concerned netizens lambasted the senator on airing her concern in favor of Rappler.

Here's Some of the Reactions from Concerned Netizens:
