Rappler Now A Blog

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Rappler CEO Maria Ressa has all but given up hope that the courts will overturn the Securities and Exchange Commission’s (SEC) order revoking the online news source’s license as a media company.

The SEC decision was based on the Constitutional provision bannning foreign ownership of Philippine media.

So, in order to continue its mission of spreading fake news, Rappler has reconstituted as a blog and has taken on a news name (and logo) as BlogpleR.

Unliike media companies, blogs are not subject to ownership restrictions.

In the spirit of unity, Asec Mocha Uson has recommended that Ressa, Pia Ranada and others from the extinct Rappler be accredited as bloggers so that they can still be part of the  Malacañang Press Corps (MPC).
