Manila Bulletin writer Krizette Laureta Chu of Manila Bulletin has raised her eyebrows upon reading the tweet of Nobel Prize winner Maria Ressa insinuating that BBM received his Oxford diploma because his father, the late Ferdinand Marcos lobbied Oxford via his government officials.
On Facebook, Chu wondered what Oxford University thinks of a Nobel Prize awardee saying they are corruptible institution.
I wonder what University of Oxford thinks of a Nobel Prize awardee saying that they are a corruptible institution.
So wait if you’re the son of a President, Oxford will kowtow to you? A prestigious university?
Netizens are also up in arms, especially BBM supporters, upon reading the screenshot photo of the tweet of Maria Ressa as shown in the comments below. While some dismissed Maria Ressa’s allegation as merely a political propaganda, some wants Oxford to teach Ressa a lesson by slapping her with another libel case, this time with international flavor.
Unless it comes from the University president itself, everything was merely a political agenda.. Coming from Ressa, Vera files? nahhhh NOT a reliable source
A very serious allegation to a prestigious university just to destroy bbm she risk herself in a libelous statement.
That being the case, she’s admitting that BBM really obtained a diploma from Oxford! lol
President of a 3rd world country can do that to Oxford University?
I don’t think that the best Institution in the world would allow that.
So THAT’S where Maria Ressa is planning to use her newfound recognition, take potshots at BBM to pull him down.
can’t wait how Oxford will respond, I just hope they lend time to give attention to that Noboo french fries awardee!
I hope Oxford will file a libel lawsuit sa Nobel Peace Prize chuvaness nato nakakainit ng ulo
Do they think that Marcos voters would sway against voting for bbm just because of a supposed issue with his diploma? Yikes ressa and vera vifles et al.
Naala ko yung sinabi ni Denh Xiaoping ng China, “It doesn’t matter whether a cat is black or white, as long as it catches mice.”Bakit pinagtatalunan ang diploma ni BBM? May diploma o wala, whether BBM lied or not about having a diploma, BBM can still be president. Si Joseph Estrada ba na naging pangulo, may ipinagmamalaking diploma? Si Isko, na kandidato rin sa pagka pangulo, meron diploma? Meron o walang diploma, kilatisin natin sila kung paano nila patatakbuhin ang pamahalaan ng pilipinas. Meron man diploma kung bobo naman, meron diploma pero gagawin komunista ang bansa, iboboto nyo pa ba?
