That guy, who inserted the section on libel? He’s the one we should all focus on. Why?

Over the weekend, the incumbent Sotto admitted to the American news organization CBS News that he was one of two senators who inserted the libel clause in the recently-enacted Republic Act No. 10175, the Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012, which President Aquino signed into law last Sept. 12.

Yes, I did it. I inserted the provision on libel. Because I believe in it and I don’t think there’s any additional harm,” read the CBS News article by Barnaby Lo.

The article noted, however, that “Sotto may actually have an axe to grind with the Filipino online community after coming under fire for allegedly plagiarizing an American blogger and the late Sen. Robert Kennedy for his speeches against a controversial family planning and reproductive health bill.

Sotto had claimed that the libel clause was not meant to abridge free speech, but only to protect ordinary people who are “victims of online attacks, character assassination and the like from people who do not observe the standards of journalism.”

Yeah, that’s right. He had that section inserted because his ego was bruised. He was caught with a plagiarized speech. Did he apologize for it? Let it slide?

No.

He made a bigger issue out of it and when people in Twitter and Facebook began making fun of him he placed that section into the bill. 

His grandfather, Vicente Sotto, who fought for the rights of journalists to keep their sources secret, would be spinning in his grave right now

Same thing with President Aquino. His father, Ninoy Aquino died fighting against Martial Law. 

You’re doing excellent work on making him proud. /sarcasm.
