QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – Remember when Mocha Uson ‘moved’ Mayon Volcano to Naga? Well, Vice President Leni Robredo just did a Mocha Uson by moving Iloilo City out of Iloilo, the province.
The Robredo camp has asked that Iloilo City be excluded from the ongoing 2016 VP Elections ballot recount, arguing that Iloilo City is separate from Iloilo.
So now Filipinos are wondering if Baguio City is not really part of Benguet Province or if Quezon City should be excluded from Metro Manila.
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Move over Rappler. Move over Vera Files. Facebook no longer needs your services as fact-checking partners. What it urgently needs is a translation partner.
Mark Zuckerberg, we offer our services for a bargain fee. Salamat po (Thank you)!
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – There’s a thin line between satire and fake news, so it just makes sense that The Adobo Chroniclesand Rappler have agreed to merge.
The Adobo Chronicles’ satire and Rappler’s fake news make the perfect combination that will bring news media to the 22nd Century.
What’s more, news satire is not considered media by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), so the merged company will not be in violation of the Constitutional provision that media companies must be 100% Filipino owned.
That means Omidyar Network and other interested foreign entities can invest in the merged company.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is the future of media in the Philippines!
