MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The ongoing rift between Rappler and The Adobo Chronicles is finally coming to an end, thanks to the intervention by Ellen Tordesillas of Vera Files.
The rift started when Maria Ressa and her Raplerettes tweeted that The Adobo Chronicles can’t tell the difference between fake news and satire. Rappler has also been fact-checking posts by The Adobo Chronicles.
It was not until Tordesillas chided Ressa, pointing out that The Adobo Chronicles is indeed satire that Ressa finally realized her ignorance. A very sisterly advice from Tordesillas.
So, to celebrate the end of the rift, Rappler is giving away free coffee mugs to the first 7,080 Filipinos who will email them and request for this free item. (7,080 represents the number that Rappler has been spreading on the extra-judicial killings under President Duterte’s war on drugs.)
This give-away was made possible by Omidyar Network which recently donated it $1.5 Million investment in Rappler to the online news source’s senior managers, including Ressa.
