Mocha Uson is one of the most influential bloggers but was considered as well as an unreliable source of information and was tagged as misleading information to fake news. In another post, Mocha strikes back to ABS-CBN network, one of her biggest detractors.
PAANO KAYA MAG REREPORT ANG TAGA ABSCBN NA NAKA BUNTOT KAY PRRD???ABSCBN REPORTER: boss galing lang ako sa speech ni DuterteABSCBN BOSS: ano may bago bang scoop? Unahan natin si MochaABSCBN REPORTER: putang ina mo daw boss sabi ni DuterteABSCBN BOSS: wag yan wag yan, EJK nalang o kaya fake news nalang ni Mocha, nagkamali siya ng spelling sa post niya, palakihin natin.” On a Facebook post at MOCHA USON BLOG.
This is not the first time Mocha Uson fights back at mainstream media for scrutinizing her work. Since she was appointed in the government, more and more Filipinos started to disagree with her.
WOW SOBRA NAMAN YAN ANC 24/7 ABS-CBN News
Hindi yan yung dinalaw ni PRRD. Ibang kulungan yan. I was there mismo may video pa. Yan ang literal na sinadyang FAKE NEWS. At lahat ng media outfit pinapadalahan ng Presidential Photos ng mga pinupuntahan ni PRRD. Kaya sure nakatanggap kayo and yet yan ang ginamit niyo.BASURA TALAGA KAYO!
As posted on her blog page on facebook, Uson also explained that all media men were able to receive official photos of the President wherever it goes. ABS-CBN used the photo wherein the prisoners looked like a canned sardines inside the cell well in fact, Camp Bagong Diwa jail has been renovated and made sure prisoners gets to be comfortable inside. Uson also confirmed that she has video and photo PRRD visiting the prisoners.
Asec Uson took to social media and call out ABS-CBN and ANC’s attention for they actually used a totally different photo.
According to Uson, the photo showing crowded inmates does not reflect the real condition of the inmates when President Duterte visited Camp Bagong Diwa, in fact, it’s actually a photo taken in a different day and time.
Somehow, Assistant Secretary Mocha Uson once told Senate inquiry that she is also a victim of fake news. During the Senate probe into the spread of false news in the country, Uson said some mainstream media had produced fake news against her.
“Biktima na po ako ng fake news” she said. “Hindi pa po ako naapoint bilang opisyal ng gobyerno, naglabas na ang ABS-CBN na ako po ay naapoint as Customs Consultant. Dahil po doon ako po ay na-bash online,” Uson added.
To this, Senator Bam Aquino interjected and asked Uson if she is also getting the side of the opposition when she reports them on her blog. Uson explained she is not a journalist but a blogger but when further pressed by the senator she refused to comment.
Senator Nancy Binay told Uson that she cannot separate her being a blogger to her job as a government official. The senator further said Uson should choose between blogging and her job as a government official.
Aside from giant broadcasting companies, Uson said she was also reported by Facebook page “Madam Claudia” of receiving a cheque from former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., to which, she denied.
The said Facebook page has more than 11,000 followers. Uson, in her blog consistently defends Duterte and criticizes members of the opposition, most of them allies of the Liberal Party.
She has previously committed blunders, prompting the netizens to take to social media their call for the government to oust Uson. #FireMocha previously trended on Twitter after Uson urged members of the opposition to visit the wake of a cop who died a year ago.
What can you say about the mainstream media’s effort to destroy the name of the President?
