Rappler posts a VERA Files story (and feels high and mighty about it)

Rappler, what some have dubbed as “God’s gift to journalism”, posted a VERA Files story I edited and worked on, without VERA Files’ knowledge and permission.

The same story, though “updated”, is still on their site. They are now saying that the story is theirs and they “don’t need to take it down.”

So I made this timeline, it is unfinished. I will add more details to this in time.

I don’t believe, by the way, that Rappler is God’s gift to journalism. God does not hate journalism that much.

[UPDATE: Rappler has taken the story down and has issued an “apology” on July 20, 2015.]

See the timeline here.
