Is Tito Sotto’s Request To Remove Pepsi Paloma Articles Granted?

Pepsi Paloma articles are now unavailable in Inquirer.

PEPSI PALOMA – The articles about the mysterious case and death of Pepsi Paloma, at the moment, “are under review and are unavailable” in the Inquirer’s site.

In a previous article, Rodel Rodis has claimed the Senate President Tito Sotto has requested the Inquirer to take down articles regarding the mysterious case and death of Pepsi Paloma.

Inquirer, on their part, has released an official statement regarding the matter and according to a follow-up report, Abelardo S. Ulanday, the editor-in-chief of the media organization, the Senate president has the right to do so.

The claims of Sotto has cited reasons that the published articles have “unverified facts” and “baseless allegations” over the mysterious case of Paloma.

Moreover, Tito Sotto even added that the articles linking him to the mysterious death of Paloma were the “original fake news”.

And now, based on a report from Rappler, the Inquirer’s articles such as  “The rape of Pepsi Paloma” and “Was Pepsi Paloma murdered?” written by United States-based columnist Rodel Rodis are now inaccessible.

The original links to the articles are now redirected to the homepage of the Inquirer.

“The articles on the Pepsi Paloma case are currently under review and are unavailable at the moment,” says management in a statement.

Thus, the National Union of Journalists of the Philippines (NUJP) was saddened by the taking of those articles based on Rappler.

They have also referred that the day these articles have been taken down was “one of the darkest days in the annals of Philippine journalism.”

On Twitter, a lot of protests over the move has surfaced but some have indicated that the more action to remove about Pepsi Paloma’s case the more people will unearth it as the “internet will accordingly be never silenced”.
