Tom Villarin on Mocha’s swipe vs Rappler: ‘Shame on you’
What do you do with a Communications official who does not respect press freedom?
Akbayan Party-list Rep. Tom Villarin had nothing but jeers to give for sexy star turned Malacañang exec Margaux “Mocha” Uson following her recent tirade against online media Rappler.
The Assistant Secretary for Presidential Communications wanted to pluck Rappler out of the Malacañang Press Corps and bring it under her watch as a social media outlet instead. But Villarin isn’t buying Uson’s new groove, saying it was but a ploy to put Rappler in a bind.
#FireMocha doesn’t know or care abt press freedom as she wants Rappler expelled from MPC which is an independent org. Shame on you, girl!
