From midnight of Monday to about 7 a.m. on Tuesday, some online readers of The Manila Times could not access our website.
This was because IT experts working for those whom we have exposed for their corrupt doings–and hypocritically claim to be paragons of rectitude—again attacked our system.
This is not the first time they have tried to silence us. And last night’s incident, we are sure, will not be the last.
Readers here and abroad have been encouraging us with praise for being the only newspaper in our country that has consistently served the truth—at the risk of displeasing the power holders in the public and private sectors.
We call on them and the people of the Philippines to continue supporting us. To join us more boldly in denouncing liars, hypocrites and destroyers of our democratic institutions.
Instead of apologizing to those of you who could not access us because we were hacked, we ask you to continue reposing your trust in us.
We renew our pledge to serve you—without fear of the mighty who wish us to distort the truth–always with the correct information and sound assessments of the true condition of our Republic.
