MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Move over, Maria Ressa; there’s a new Rappler darling in the person of reporter Pia Ranada.
For years, CEO Ressa has enjoyed the spotlight when it comes to issues on mainstream and social media especially as it involves Rappler, but that has changed overnight.
Yesterday, Ranada was barred from entering Malacañang to fulfill her reportorial duties with Rappler.
Reports of the incident immediatley went viral and all of a sudden, Ranada has hugged the spotlight away from her boss.
That doesn’t make Ressa happy. She’s contemplating on replacing Ranada as Rappler’s representative on the Malacañang Press Corps.
Is this what they call professional jealousy?
