MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – ‘Tis the season for awards. Incarcerated Senator Leila De Lima has received yet another award from Amnesty International, while Rappler’s Maria Ressa has been given a journalism award by the Knight Foundation.
Not be be left behind, PCOO Assistant Secretry Mocha Uson has just received the International ‘People’s Choice Award’ for the blogger with the most number of followers and engagements. Uson has about 5 Million followers as compared to Rappler’s 2 Million (and declining.)
Uson’s recognition is a testament to the power of the people, and to the fact that what matters most is not corporate or political influence, but whom the Filipinos trust and believe in.
And it’s looking like Filipinos trust and believe in Uson, rather than Ressa and De Lima.
Congrtatulations to Mocha!
