WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – The Adobo Chronicles, the international online news satire site based in San Jose, California, is reportedly included in U.S. President Donald Trump’s shortlist for his promised “Fake News Awards.”
The awards which were supposed to be announced Monday will be made public instead on Wednesday, January 17th, according to a tweet from Trump.
Also reportedly in the short list is CNN which Trump has repeatedly labeled as “fake news.”
Upon hearing of the potential award, the publishers of The Adobo Chronicles said that they will reject the award.
”We’re not a fake news site,” they said. “Mr. Trump should know better about “satire.”
They added, “We occasionally will report on fake news, but we are not the manufacturer of such. With The Adobo Chronicles, what you see is what you get. We tell you what’s true and what’s fake.”
So, Mr. Trump: thanks but no thanks!
