Now that the Resorts World attacker has been identified as a mere gambling addict, not ISIS as per Rappler report, social media want accountability.
Social media blogger Mike Acebedo Lopez took to Facebook demanding Maria Ressa of Rappler to be held accountable for her irresponsible brand of journalism.
Well, her fake news caused 37 deaths after hotel guests, employees and visitors panicked and died of suffocating fumes brought about by the fire started by the suspect, Jessie Carlos.

I’m serious, there is a need to make Maria Ressa account for what she did. At the very least, she ought to issue a public apology.
Imagine the effects of her delving in speculation, the untold damage she’s done on our economy, in being directly responsible for sowing confusion, in planting fear in the hearts and minds of people, if only to achieve her self-serving agenda.
From that irresponsible article that reported a triple hearsay and other information not yet vetted, to that CNN interview where she made hasty assumptions and practically told the world even before investigators were done with their work that it was ISIS. She somehow maliciously inserted Martial Law into the conversation suggesting the attack was a pretext to the President declaring Martial Law.
CNN got it from her and thereafter, even Donald Trump said it was an ISIS attack, citing what other source but CNN of course. And from there, where else does it go back to? To her.
Maria’s fake news has traveled the world and fooled even the President of the United States. Imagine that.
In this most tragic episode, there are two enemies, the suspect and a terrorist.
Yes, somehow, even without ISIS doing anything, the terrorists won this round, thanks to a lone wolf, a lone bitch.
You are the terrorist, Maria.
By the way, check this video of CNN wherein Maria Ressa was interviewed about Resorts World Manila attack.
Let us read reaction of social media by reading the comments posted on Mike’s post.
Marides Macadamia remarked: “Can she be charged and sent to jail??? I can’t wait to see her go to the prison– she has done so much dent to our country! Money already bought her soul!”
Rey Lapingcao commented: “she should get the death penalty. such a treacherous person”
Boboy Jay wrote: “I think it’s high time irresponsible journalism get punished by imprisonment.”
Your reaction, please!
