La Salle prof asks Congress to investigate Rappler: "There is a Constitutional prohibition against foreign capital in media"


Political analyst and Professor of De La Salle University, Dr. Antonio Contreras calls the attention of the Congress to investigate Rappler for having a Constitutional violation.

Nowadays, this topic was doing the rounds online. They said Omidyar is an investor of Rappler and the co-funded Revolutionary groups that were part in unseating the Ukraine President last year.

Contreras  said that USAID was also funding the pro-regime change NGOs.

Check out Contreras post:

Omidyar investing in Rappler deserves a full-blown Congressional Inquiry not only because there is a Constitutional prohibition against foreign capital in media. More dangerously is that Omidyar co-funded Revolutionary groups that led to regime change in Ukraine. Together with USAID, they funded the activities of pro-regime change NGOs whose strategies are almost similar with the tactics employed by Rappler and the yellows.

This is a serious matter that requires a serious response.

I am now calling on Congress to investigate this.

Meanwhile, netizen Bubuy Balangue posted on his Facebook account a little research and brief summary about Omidyar.

He said these may be the reasons why Rappler since elections posted only a one-sided news about President Duterte.

Read his full statement:
As promised, here's a bit of research about Rappler's operations.

Rappler has two big investors: Omidyar and North Based Media. The former is headed by eBay's founder Pierre Omidyar. President Obama also personally appointed Omidyar to sit on the President’s Commission on White House Fellowships. Omidyar’s White House visits included conversations focused on the “Omidyar Network’s desire to shape US foreign policy.”

Here's where it gets very shady.

The Philippine Constitution’s Article XVI, Section 11 is categorical: “The ownership of mass media shall be limited to citizens of the Philippines.” Indeed, even in an era of free-flowing capital, most countries in the world have maintained their restrictions on foreign capital in their media. For good reason, since only its citizens must have primary control of the means of forming public opinion.

Omidyar is a part of a 'fact-checking project' which it funds along side with the National Endowment for Democracy. Omidyar funded revolutionary groups that were involved in the overthrow of Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych last year. Sounds familiar?

The National Endowment for Democracy, the other group behind the “fact checking” project,” is considered to be the CIA’s “civilian arm” and has been deeply embroiled in innumerable instigated uprisings, attempted coups and acts of regime change since its creation in 1983, including the contrived 2004 “Orange Revolution” that brought US puppet Viktor Yushchenko to power in Ukraine, as well as the more recent uprising in Kiev.

Ever wonder what Rappler’s “mood” charts are for? A source alleged that Rappler has been selling this “big-data,” the links between news stories and reported moves, to US firms.

So, what does this all mean for the current government?

Rappler may be on to something. And overthrow, an ousting, a regime change; THIS had been the tone since the elections down to today where news from Rappler are mostly one-sided.

I may be wrong. You know what, Google's your friend. I don't have the monopoly of these findings. The New York Mag has some serious shit about the Omidyar Network.

Do some more research. I am sure you will be equally surprised as I am. Tagging Sass Rogando Sasot, Lorraine Marie T. Badoy Denise Celdran, Thinking Pinoy, Cherry Pink, Carla St Anne Burwell, Dave Mitchell, Ramil Digal Gulle, John Ernest, Mickz Sabs, Carli D Recio II, Katrina Stuart Santiago, Ira V. Panganiban, Rafael M. Alunan lll, Krizette Laureta Chu, Trixie Cruz-Angeles, Dee Somera

Again, I maybe wrong. We welcome clarifications of course; information that will provide clarity.
