READ: Blogger attacks anti socmed politicians, socmed an alternative to pricey media

One of the DDS bloggers counter-attacked the senators who are in-charge with the committee hearing against fake news saying PR operators are also using them to spreed disinformation.


Using her Facebook page, Trixie Cruz-Angeles cited Thinking Pinoy's revelation about the so-called #NasaanAngPangulo campaign which she claimed to be a solid evidence to support the argument.

Angeles uploaded images of a public report entitled "Architects of Networked Disinformation" which talks about behind the scenes of troll accounts and fake news productions in the country.

The blogger as well as lawyer, emphasized that this has been the reason why senators are grilling bloggers with the advent of fake news in the country.

"Pero hindi ito kagulat gulat dahil ginagawa na ito dati ng ilang nasa mainstream media. May mga AC-DC nga dyan eh. Attack-Collect, Defend-Collect. Nguni't hindi ganyan ang react ng mga senador na kulang na lang bigyan ng clonidine (gamot sa high blood) para huminahon. Tingin ko it isn't so much the info na maraming gumagawa nito, kahit dati pa. But that with the rise of certain Bloggers, nawalan sila (yung mga trapo) ng control. Since many of the known Bloggers are clear about their political preferences, hindi ganun kadali sila ipatrabaho sa mga PR operators. Imagine any of us writing praises about Kiko or Bam or Risa?" as read in Trixie's post.

According to her, Mocha is one of the bloggers who is not beyond the control of the 'traditional politicians' which makes them think that they should limit her influence to the people.

However, Trixie claimed that they can no longer spin the DDS.

"Too bad for these senators. Di na nila kaya i-spin ito as merely pambabalahura ng DDS. Bahagi ito sa pag distrunka ng mga infrastructure na sumusuporta sa mga elite at elitista. Lumaganap ang paggamit ng socmed bilang alternatibo sa nga nabibiling media. Sorry na lang, po. Bilog ang mundo," she concluded.
