A matrix linking news media organizations to oust Duterte plot has been making the rounds on social media.
In a Manila Times article published just recently, the matrix showed the connections of Ellen Tordesillas, President of Vera Files; Rappler, PCIJ (Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism) and National Union of Philippine Lawyers to one of the few black propaganda videos against the people close to President Duterte.
Based on the matrix, all of the above-mentioned media organizations are connected to ‘Bikoy’, the nickname of the whistleblower behind the “Ang Totoong Narcolist” video, which allegedly came from the metrobalita.net website as shown by the IP.
In another diagram named “Link Analysis of email footprints”, established the connection of the YouTube link of the video to the email firstname.lastname@example.org used in the uploading of the video, which was also used to login at verafile.org of Tordesillas.
As per Manila Times source, the black propaganda of ‘Bikoy’ was then relayed by Tordesillas to Rappler, PCIJ and NOPL.
Meanwhile, Ellen Tordesillas has already issued a statement denying the allegation against her, calling it ‘hilarious’ and ‘downright false.’
However, former Ambassador Bobi Tiglao disputed Ellen Tordesillas statement.
Tiglao wrote on Facebook that he is 100% sure ‘Bikoy’ video was Tordesillas-Trillanes collaboration based on her tweet on April Fools Day.
I’m 100% certain the Bikoy video was T-T (Trillanes-Tordesillas) operation. Hindi nga nakatiis si Tordesillas to announce a day before the video was posted:
Retired broadcaster Jay Sonza commented on Ellen Tordesillas’ statement dismissing the allegation saying it’s easy to deny the allegation but in the internet or cyber world, the IP addresses and alphanumerics won’t lie.
madaling pasinungalingan ang bintang. pero sa internet o cyber world hindi maaring magsinungaling ang mga IP address at account alphanumerics. hello! Elen, Maria, Severino, Olalia.
