"Do your research, ma'am," blogger Mocha Uson, told a CBC News Canada reporter during an interview.
Uson posted the video of the interview on her Facebook feed "Mocha Uson Blog: Boses ng Ordinaryong Pilipino" on Thursday, March 15, 2017.
The caption read: "Ito ang madalas na tanong ng mga International Media- EJK at DE LIMA. Madalas silang nalinlinlang ng mga local Media at PR of LP. Kaya meron akong suggestion sa mga International Media panoorin sa dulo ng video".
Mocha, a known supporter of the Duterte administration rallied to its defense when asked about the rising number of extrajudicial killings in the Philippines.
"That's fake news, saying that 7,000 were extrajudicially killed, meaning it's state-sponsored or ordered by the President."
She then explained that many of the casualties of the drug war were killed during legitimate police operations.
When asked whether she finds it curious that the killings happened after Duterte threatened to actually kill the criminals, Mocha said, "He says that all the time. He talks the language of the criminals and it's not against the law to threaten criminals."
The political blogger also explained that the killings were already happening even before President Duterte took over.
"There are more killings before, farmers being killed. You don't know about the farmers?"
Amused at the reporter admitting she hasn't heard about it, Mocha Uson put the latter to task saying, "So please madam, do your research."
