CNN Philippines issues statement on Sen. Trillanes' claim on Ben Tesiorna

By Media Newser Philippines | Monday, September 11, 2017

CNN Philippines has just issued an official statement clarifying that Ben Tesiorna, one of the names mentioned by Senator Antonio Trillanes IV as propagator of fake news, is not a network employee.

"Ben Tesiorna is not an employee of CNN Philippines. He was a contributor whose stories were used by CNN Philippines on occasion," the network said.

Trillanes in a press conference Monday said that he will file libel cases against Tesiorna, who runs the Facebook page Davao Breaking News, PCO ASec Mocha Uson, and radio commentator Erwin Tulfo for spreading fake news about his alleged offshore bank accounts.

“Within the next few days, pa-file-an ko ng kaso si Erwin Tulfo, Mocha Uson at si Mr. Ben Tesiorna,” Trillanes said. “Kakasuhan ko sila ng libel. Hindi na pu-pwede yung fake news. The era of fake news is over. Itong Duterte administration, nanalo kayo sa fake news. Pero ngayon, hindi na pwede ‘yun. Hahabulin at hahabulin ko kayo every time."
