When it comes to trolling his critics, PRRD is a legend. On social media, particularly on Facebook, nothing does it better than retired broadcaster Jay Sonza. Well, as far as my opinion is concerned, ok?
Sonza’s good trolling skill has been perfectly demonstrated in his latest Facebook post, hitting Rappler’s Maria Ressa.
In case you missed it, Maria Ressa was in Europe to attend the International media forum held in London.
And in that forum, Maria Ressa, inadvertently admitted that indeed Piere Omidyar, a billionaire investor, invested a measly 5% or $4.5-M into Rappler?
If you’re wondering how much is $4.5-M in pesos, just multiply it by P51 and your calculator tells you, its a whopping 229M pesos.
Based on that Maria Ressa’s admission, this is where Jay Sonza’s trolling skill and investigative know-how as a former journalist come in handy.
First off, Sonza reckoned that if Rappler’s Book of Accounts says it has a capital of P240M and Omidyar (foreign investor) poured in $4.5-M (P229-M) in Rappler, then Maria Ressa’s Math was way off.
Sonza exclaimed that Maria Ressa’s arithmetic is also questionable as well.
Meanwhile, Jay Sonza bared that Maria Ressa was the former production assistant of News5 chief Luchie Cruz. And also, Maria Ressa’s first employment was with ABS-CBN under Cheche Lazaro.
You may read Jay Sonza’s full FB post below.
According to Rappler’s Book of Accounts, it has a capital of P240M.
Omidyar’s (foreign) invested (according to ressa under her name, representing only 5 percent ) $4.5M only or equivalent to P225M.
Filipino (domestic) investments would only total to P15M.
Pati sa arithmetic may problema din pala si maria.
Kahit paano ko kuwentahin iyong perang dayuhan ay mahigit sa 95 porsiyento kapital ng kumpanyang Rappler.
Iyong video at transcript ng Freedom Conference at isang matibay na pruweba sa kasong anti-dummy at tax evasion laban kay ressa.
Sa sobrang katabilan, ipinahamak ng dating production assistant ni News5 chief luchie Cruz (first employment ni ressa was with abs-cbn under cheche Lazaro and u. p. prof. luchie in 1986-87) ang kanyang sarili.
