MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – A newly-released survey by Poll Asia (not to be confused with Pulse Asia) shows which newspapers or blogs are read by what type of Filipinos and which television news they watch. The ground-breaking survey also indicates where they all hang out, in case you want to hang out with them.
The Manila Times is read by those who want General Douglas McArthur to return to the Philippines. They usually hang out at Manila’s Army & Navy Club.
The Manila Bulletin is read by those who want Ferdinand E. Marcos to return as president of the Philippines. In his absence, Bongbong Marcos will do. They usually hang out at the Manila Hotel.
The Philippine Star is read by those who wished Ninoy Aquino had not been assassinated. He could have been president of the Philippines. They usually hang out at Club Filipino in San Juan.
The Inquirer is read by those who think Cory Aquino should be canonized as the next Filipino Saint. They usually hang out the Archbishop’s Palace in Mandaluyong.
ABS-CBN News is watched by Filipino oligarchs. They usually hang out at Shangri-la Hotel in Makati
GMA News is watched by the fans of AlDub. They never switch channels for fear of missing an episode of the noon-time show, “Eat Bulaga.” They usually hang out — where else — outside GMA studios in Quezon City.
CNN Philippines is watched by Senator Risa Hontiveros. She usually hangs out with her sister, Pia Hontiveros of CNN
People’s Television (PTV) is usually watched by Secretary Martin Andanar. Of course he hangs out in Malacañang.
Rappler is usually read by Maria Ressa and her staff. They usually hang out on Facebook and Twitter.
Raissa Robles Blog is usually read by… Does anyone really read her? Anyone who does doesn’t really hang out anywhere.
