MANILA, Philippines – In two separate press briefings, Malacañang releases two diagrams that accuse media groups and opposition figures of plotting to oust President Rodrigo Duterte.

Despite their awesome allegations, the diagrams fail to clarify exactly what the named journalists have done that qualify as conspiring to unseat the Chief Executive.

Fallacies, outdated information, unsubstantiated claims pepper the diagrams. No intelligence or security agency has confirmed the so-called plot.

In this podcast, we take you to the very beginning and explain how this is an escalation of a larger fight: Duterte’s war against critical media. – Rappler.com
