Netizens wasted no seconds in castigating Rappler for their pessimistic view of the Duterte visit in Indonesia.

A MOMENT OF SILENCE. PLEASE.. An analyst just died! condolence Rappler! hahaha

Antonio Luna says:

The mainstream media just crossed the point of no return! They are self-confessed intelligent being and remember that smart people always outrun them.


Renan Yeil says:

I still don’t get why Political Analysts still think Duterte is a normal Politican, that’s why their analysis on Duterte is always wrong. They should think outside the box as Duterte is history in a making.

Erlinda Hade Jimenez says:

Alam mo Rappler ayokong magmura kasi umagang umaga pero….Hinayupak ka.. Tuwang tuwa nga mga Indonesians sa pagpunta ni Digong doon bakit sa balita mo baligtad na naman.

Angenoel Zaballero says:

Tatz Art says:

Meanwhile, Rappler defended its post and responds:
