96264691-E586-4D8F-88FA-2CAFB87E0B26.jpegMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Subject to fact-checking by Rappler and Vera Files) – Senator Bam Aquino is infamous for being a credit grabber.  Remember when he went around the country proclaiming that he was the author of the free education bill?  Well, the facts would speak for themselves.

Now, Aquino is once again grabbing credit by saying that he was the one solely responsible for the designation of Rappler and Vera Files as Facebook’s partners in the fact-checking program in the Philippines.

”It was my video chat with Mark Zuckerberg that convinced him that Facebook partner with Maria Ressa and Ellen Tordesillas,” Aquino told The Adobo Chronicles.

Truth be told, subject of course to fact-checking by Rappler and Vera Files.
