    Mocha Uson, Sass Sasot and RJ Nieto (Thinking Pinoy) maligned, insulted harassed Jover Laurio in many, all ways from her looks to almost everything, and this is the result - everything backfired. instead of disappearing and getting erased, Jover Laurio, Pinoy Ako Blog catapulted to national and to some degree international fame, hailed for her fearless views and her efforts to fight fake news which were authored by Mocha Uson, Sass Sasot and RJ Nieto.

    Filipinos of the Year 2017: Pinoy Ako Blog and other voices vs fake news
    Philippine Daily Inquirer

    0107FOTY-5-768x513.jpg


    HALLOWED GROUND Jover Laurio of Pinoy Ako Blog sits on the steps at the Bantayog ng mga Bayani in Quezon City after the launching of her book—“Resibo ni Pinoy Ako Blog”—on Saturday. —LYN RILLON

    In a year that saw the beginning of a pushback against the organized production and distribution of false information, the blogger Jover Laurio — the lone, once-anonymous, much-abused person behind Pinoy Ako Blog (PAB) — stood out for her patriotic daring, the frequency and freshness of her posts, the dark humor of her blog, and, not least, the courage she showed in the face of overwhelming personal abuse.

    At the same time, she was also and only a part of a growing chorus of voices resisting the “fake news” that overflowed social media platforms and that sometimes even spilled out of the mouths of government officials.

    For holding public officials to account for their statements, for proving that the democratic ideal of governance is not mere consent of the governed but informed consent, for insisting on the facts that cast light on the truth, Jover Laurio and other voices against fake news are the Inquirer’s Filipinos of the Year.

    Every year since 1991, the Philippine Daily Inquirer seeks to recognize the Filipino who, in the judgment of the newspaper’s editors, made the most positive impact on the life of the nation.

    Since 2012, the pool of editors has expanded to include the news managers of other news-related operations in the Inquirer Group: Inquirer.net, Radyo Inquirer, Cebu Daily News, Inquirer Bandera and Megamobile.

    The honor roll of past Filipinos of the Year includes volcanologist Raymundo Punongbayan (the first honoree), lawyer Haydee Yorac, priest-turned-politician Among Ed Panlilio, and boxing icon Manny Pacquiao (first in 2003, when he shot to world fame, then again in 2008, when he cemented his legacy as one of the greatest fighters of all time).

    All post-Edsa presidents received recognition: Corazon Aquino in 1997 and then again in 1999, Fidel V. Ramos in 1996, Joseph Estrada in 1998, Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in 2002 and Benigno Aquino III in 2010.

    The Filipino of the Year honor has also been bestowed on personalities whose recent passing left a void: Fernando Poe Jr. in 2004, Jesse Robredo in 2012, and Letty Jimenez-Magsanoc, the Inquirer’s editor in chief for a quarter-century, in 2015.

    Collectives have been recognized, including the Supreme Court in 2001, Filipino volunteer rescuers in 2009 (Tropical Storm “Ondoy”) and 2011 (Tropical Storm “Sendong”); the “Tres Marias” Sen. Leila de Lima, Ombudsman Conchita Carpio Morales and former Commission on Audit Chair Grace Pulido-Tan in 2014; and the antirevisionists who protested the rehabilitation of the Marcoses in 2016.

    In the search for the 2017 Filipino of the Year, 49 out of a total of 51 editors voted. A plurality of 20 chose Laurio; 17 editors voted for the soldiers and police officers who defended the Islamic City of Marawi. (See “The defenders of Marawi”).

    Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpio of the Supreme Court and Sister Ma. Juanita Daño of the Religious of the Good Shepherd with Centerlaw received six votes each.

    Editors nominated Carpio for “his relentless campaign to educate Filipinos on their birthright and the West Philippine Sea,” and Daño for “initiating the documentation of 35 drug killings in San Andres Bukid, Manila, that became the basis of a petition urging the Supreme Court to issue a writ of amparo to protect the community from police harassment.”

    Voice of facts

    Laurio, who started PAB first on Facebook in December 2016 and then as a stand-alone site in February 2017, was nominated—it bears pointing out—by journalists, whose job it is to get “the best obtainable version of the truth.” (The famous quote is from reporter Carl Bernstein of Watergate fame.)

    Those who submitted her name for consideration as representative of others cited her as “the voice of facts,” lauded her for “exposing fake news,” noted her “in-your-face ‘counterblogs’ complete with documented proof [that] handily thrash and expose … fake news and disinformation.”

    Editors who voted for her and others like her explained why “voices against fake news …. are so important in this age of murky reporting and deliberate manipulation,” and why “the country needs people who can ‘separate the grain from the chaff,’ to identify what’s real and what’s fake.”

    They said their choice was meant “to stand not only for the PAB blogger but also for anyone who speaks out for truth and facts, and fights lies and deception that threaten our democracy. It is our profession’s fight for survival — the profession of journalism and the institution that is traditional media.”

    Is there a contradiction in the very act of journalists praising bloggers and social media commentators like Laurio, “in a time where truth and veracity have been minimized because of agenda and politics?”

    None, because journalists will be among the first to acknowledge that sometimes their reporting or analysis falls short, in the same way they will be among the first to point out that journalism is inherently self-correcting and often gets things right.

    In fact, in an informal survey that the Inquirer conducted to list the other voices who have fought the good fight against lies and disinformation, the names of many journalists were mentioned, including those of Ellen Tordesillas, Lourd de Veyra, Raissa Robles and Sylvia Mayuga, and the work of news organizations or associations like Vera Files and the National Union of Journalists of the Philippines were cited.

    There are many more journalists, including columnists and reporters from the Inquirer.

    But still other voices, like Laurio herself, were independent of the traditional news organizations, and ranged widely in background: former Solicitor General Florin Hilbay, human rights worker Carlos Conde, poet Marne Kilates, lawyer Jesus Falcis, singer Cynthia Patag, novelist Miguel Syjuco, entertainer and social media phenomenon Ethel Booba, with her signature “Charot!” — a sign-off that is both jokey and in earnest.

    There are many more names, including those of Justice Carpio [again] and Associate Justice Marvic Leonen. Special mention was made of Samira Gutoc Tomawis, who has been exposing human rights violations in Marawi.

    Fake news has been around since humans learned to communicate beyond the grunt and the gesture. The emergence of the internet as the world’s de facto media environment and the rise of social media, however, have made it easier to manufacture false information and even easier and much faster to circulate it. But a well-informed citizenry is not only a democratic ideal; it is basic to any society.

    Early in 2017, the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines issued a pathbreaking “pastoral exhortation” against fake news. The letter defined what is at stake.

    “Crucial decisions — personal and social — depend on the accurate grasp of facts. ‘Alternative facts’ and ‘fake news’ engender faulty decisions, many times with disastrous long-term consequences to persons and to communities. Sadly, we see this happening today. There are persons who have given themselves to the service of reporting what never happened, concealing what really happened and distorting what should be presented in a straightforward manner.”

    While the term itself has now been both weaponized (for instance, US President Donald Trump calls any story derogatory to him “fake news”) and at the same time neutralized (because it can mean anything, it has been rendered useless), there is great value in knowing precisely what the term actually means.

    Maureen Sullivan, once public editor at the New York Times and now media critic at the Washington Post, reminds us: “Fake news has a real meaning — deliberately constructed lies, in the form of news articles, meant to mislead the public.”

    In the media literacy talks that the Inquirer conducts, fake news is defined as the 3Ds: It is a Deliberate act of fabrication or manipulation; Disguised to look, sound, or feel like the news; and designed to Deceive.

    (The first element accounts for accidents and mistakes; the third allows for such forms as satire or parody.)

    PAB story

    Part of the reason Laurio became the symbol of the pushback against fake news is the way she became the focus of the fake news producers; in a very real sense, they made her what she is today.

    The abuse heaped on Laurio, the harassment she received, the hate directed her way once President Duterte’s key social media supporters had identified her in a calculated, cynical act of “doxxing” (the malicious outing of private information, including personal identity), was overwhelming.

    It recalled the same kind of orchestrated outrage which swarmed De Lima, Vice President Leni Robredo, journalist Maria Ressa, and many others perceived as opposed to or critical of either the President or the failed vice presidential candidate Sen. Ferdinand Marcos Jr.

    This organized campaign against Laurio turned her into a representative voice. Why? Because many of the people who criticize Mr. Duterte and Marcos Jr. online, even those with hardly any following or who happen merely to post a comment on a news story or on social media, receive the same scorched-earth treatment: attacked on looks, threatened with death or rape, demonized as coddlers of drug lords and pushers.

    Personal credo

    Laurio’s most personal post, and certainly her most consequential, was the one where she shed her anonymity.

    On Oct. 13, 2017, in “Ako si PAB, Oh Eh Ano Ngayon? (I’m PAB, So What?),” she wrote: “Hayaan niyo na sa akin manggaling ang katotohanan. Opo, si PAB at si Ms Jover Laurio ay iisa (Let the truth come from me. Yes, PAB and Ms Jover Laurio are one).”

    She has since referred to that piece as the most important of the 850 posts she wrote in 2017, “kasi hindi na ako takot (because I was no longer afraid).”

    The post was shared on Facebook 52,000 times. The Facebook link to the PAB page was itself shared more than 17,000 times. On the day she came out, her follower base increased by more than 10,000, to over 100,000. Today, she has about 125,000 followers.

    Aside from the sense of liberation she must have felt upon fully revealing her identity, she also drew inspiration from the many supporters who subscribed to her blog or who shared her posts. The Oct. 13 post carries the following acknowledgment of the voices Laurio knew she had come to represent. It reads like a personal credo—and a political statement.

    “Maaring iisang tao lang si Jover Laurio, pero marami si PAB.

    “Makikita mo si PAB sa bawat Pilipinong nagsasawa na sa fake news at pagsisinungaling na ginagawa ng mga propagandista.

    “Makikita mo si PAB sa bawat inang nawalan ng anak dahil sa EJK [extrajudicial killing].

    “Makikita mo si PAB sa iyak ng mga kabataan na naulila sa magulang kasi pinatay ang mga magulang nila nang walang due process.

    “Makikita mo si PAB sa bawat manggagawang nakikipagbuno sa traffic araw-araw na hanggang ngayon ay hindi pa din nabibigyan ng solusyon ng gobyernong ito.

    “Makikita mo si PAB sa bawat guro na ultimo chalk allowance nila ay pinagdamutan pa ng administrasyong ito.

    “Makikita mo si PAB sa mga sundalong pilit na binabantayan ang mga teritoryo natin sa West Philippine Sea habang si (Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan) Cayetano at Duterte ay hindi man lang pinaglalaban ito.

    “Makikita mo si PAB sa bawat OFW na nagsisikap sa ibang bansa na umuwing luhaan, kasi dinatnan na bangkay ang mahal sa buhay.

    “Makikita mo si PAB sa bawat isang taxpayer na nagkakanda kuba na sa pagbabayad ng buwis, pero winawaldas lang ng pamahalaan pambayad sa propagandista at sa ibat ibang junket.

    “Makikita mo si PAB sa mga taong umasa ng matinong pagbabago at nabigo kasi madugong pagbabago ang nagaganap.”

    A translation:

    “Jover Laurio may be only one person, but there are many PABs.

    “You can find PAB in every Filipino fed up with the fake news and lies peddled by propagandists.

    “You can find PAB in every mother who has lost a child to an EJK.

    “You can find PAB in the cries of children orphaned because their parents were killed without due process.

    “You can find PAB in every worker wrestling with traffic every day, a problem which up to now the government has still not solved.

    “You can find PAB in every teacher who receives a meager chalk allowance from the government.

    “You can find PAB in the soldiers who defend our territory in the West Philippine Sea while Cayetano and President Duterte fail to fight for it.

    “You can find PAB in every OFW who toils in another country but comes home weeping because the corpse of a loved one is waiting.

    “You can find PAB in every taxpayer almost doubled over from paying taxes that the government wastes on propagandists on multiple junkets.

    “You can find PAB in the people who hoped for decent change but are frustrated because violent change is what is happening.”

    These are the voices fighting fake news.

    fake news bloggers vs journos





    panalo ang fake news bloggers because dutertards loves drama and scandals.

    one of the lessons here on the point of good vs evil : no matter what evil does, in this case there were 3 evils, Nieto, Sasot and Uson, in the end good wins.

    the efforts of Nieto, Sasot and Uson were meant to silence, to shame to stop Laurio, but nothing of the sort happened. in fact the exact opposite happened.

    now, Laurio is more popular and more admired than Sasot, Uson and Prieto combined.

    the New York Times interviewed Laurio. the article by NYT would be an interesting read.

    From Krizette Laureta Chu

    I'm so sorry to the fallen heroes of Marawi, to their suffering but dignified widows, to the evacuees who are trying to piece together their lives after terrorists attacked their city.

    I am so sorry to that group of young Filipino students and delegates who bested other nationalities in the international math competition in Singapore (Singapore, the birthplace of Singaporean style Math, and our kids won.)

    Im sorry to Hilary Andales, the student from Philsci Visayas, who brought home P20 million for winning the Breakthrough Challenge for an explainer video on relativity in a global science competition.

    Sorry to the Philippine ice hockey team who won a gold medal at the 2017 SEA GAMES. A surprise win, and a very welcome one.

    Sorry to Capt. Jeffrey Buada, the Scout Ranger who negotiated the release of women, children, and the injured from the ISIS, crossing enemy lines and risking his life to do so.

    I'm sorry to these heroes like Joe Green and his group, who regularly fly out to Marawi to help evacuees. To girls like Kaye Koo, who built a library for the kids there, for everyone who gave a little of themselves to uplift other Filipinos.

    Sorry Dr. Rogel Sese, that your tireless efforts to see and create a Philippine Space Agency isn't enough. Sorry to the OFWs whose remittances have acted as a foil against destabilization efforts and kept the peso stable. Sorry to the honest taxi drivers and service industry people whose small acts of heroism have gone unnoticed. Sorry to the policemen who have risked their lives in service to the nation, despite a besmirched reputation many of you soldier on.

    You are, to us, the Filipinos of the year.

    To represent the Filipino as a nation, to deserve the title, you should have brought us pride, gave the country honor, showed us a sliver of hope, helped build the nation, no matter your party affiliation.

    Most of all, I am sorry that respected editors think that Jover Laurio, who is none of the above, is the "voice of fact." She isn't. It's not a fact that Lorraine Badoy is retokada, or that we are bayaran.

    I am so sorry that some editors we looked up to are so hellbent on destroying the credibility of the administration and its supporters they don't care for their own credibility, throwing their support blindly behind a person as shady and as dubious as Laurio.

    The fight is no longer against fake news, because fake news is easily verifiable--it's against biased news that serves the interest of a select group of powerful people. It's against slanted news that chooses to highlight some facts and hides others to present a chosen, curated, self serving view.

    The Filipino of the year is the Filipino who came out of their shell to fight to change the status quo that never served them, the status quo that enslaved them for decades, that kept the Philippines in the dark.

    The Filipino of the year is the ordinary Filipino who will do anything in his power to go against the desperate but powerful few who will do anything to cling to the fading vestiges of power, including sacrilegiously naming a libelous blogger the "Filipino of the Year," pretending that she's an acceptable Mockingjay of some sort.

    The 90 percent who are real partners for change, they are the Filipinos of the year. (So you can go shave your back now.)

    the only thing i agree with this person are her words about marawi heroes.

    everything else, such as the math competition or the hockey team or space program is bull$Hi7.

    as for ofws, they're already labeled as heroes. no need to remind ourselves of that.
