Rating: Rappler is reposting MISLEADING stories!

Rappler did it again! Not only has it become infamous for its biased news telling, its CEO, Ressa was also convicted of cyber-libel in 2020.

In a recent repost of Rappler of the UniTeam’s after-event in UEP, it stated:

“The University of Eastern Philippines (UEP), in a Facebook post shared on Saturday morning, April 9, called out the organizers of the UniTeam rally for leaving behind trash from yesterday’s event.”

Three hours after that, UEP updated its story on Facebook, and stated:

“LOOK: Meanwhile, these are the updated photos of the UEP GROUNDS AT THE MOMENT. Thank you to the organizers of the event yesterday for ensuring the cleanliness of the premises of this university.”

The event organizer’s complete statement:

“Maupay na aga sa admin sino na page. Ini na picture na iyo ginpa imod, ongoing pa sini amo restoration and clean up sa venue. Paggikan namo kahapon mga 1:30PM katapos manlimpya sa gymnatorium naghatag po ak instructions saam mga tawo na suyuron a field ngan tagliligid na lugar para mapurot a mga basura.
