MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The Philippine Daily Inquirer (PDI) is in hot water these days after allegations surfaced that it owes the government billions of pesos in unpaid rent, not to mention taxes overdue from businesses its owns, including Dunkin’ Donuts.
So, in an effort to rebuild its sagging reputation and credibility, the Inquirer unveiled its new masthead that better reflects its true identity and political leaning (see photo.)
The PDI also took the opportunity to thank those who have stood by the newspaper and continued to patronize it despite all the controversy and accusations hurled against it.
“We would like to specifically mention the thousands of tuyo and tinapa vendors who have continued to subscribe to the paper to boost their retail business (see other photo.)
PDI also apologized to its readers for its failed campaign to dissuade people from voting for President Rodrigo Duterte in TIME’s online poll for the 2017 100 Most Influential Persons in the World. Duterte came out No. 1 in the poll.
Change is indeed coming to the Inquirer!
