President Duterte hits some media companies including Rappler and ABS-CBN during his SONA speech on Monday, July 24, 2017.
“When you are a newspaper, you are suppose to be 100 percent Filipino, and yet when you start to pierce their identity, it is fully owned by Americans,” he said.
“ABS, Rappler kayo ba yan?” Duterte asked.
“Have you try to pierced your identity? It will lead you to America and yet the constitution requires you to be 100 percent Filipino media.”
“Rappler, try to pierce their identity and you will end up American ownership,” he said.
