DAVAO CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – In the U.S., Senator Ted Cruz shocked political circles when he announced his vice presidential running mate in the person of former GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina. This, despite the uncertainty of his being chosen his party’s nominee.
In the Philippines, presidential frontrunner Mayor Rodrigo Duterte shocked the Philippine media by announcing that if he is elected president, he would like The Adobo Chronicles to be the official press office of his presidential palace.
The tough-talking and controversial mayor said he is fed up with the biased corporate and local media and their constant “twisting and turning” of his press interviews and statements.
“I want a press office that will tell the story truthfully and without any bias,” Duterte said.
We, at the Chronicles, have respectfully declined the offer and honor, but we continue to be committed to be always fair, balanced and funny just like the mayor, when reporting on news and developments from Duterte’s Malacañang.
