QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – Ex-President NoyNoy Aquino ripped Rappler for the online news source’s story on the deportation of Australian nun Sister Patricia Fox.

In its report, while praising Fox’s missionary life in the Philippines, Rappler resurrected the protests staged by farmers in Hacienda Luisita which is owned by the Aquino family. (Fox had participated in those rallies).D26F14F6-351A-4395-8D76-2DC2B2128371

“It was disrespectful and out of line for Rappler to include Hacienda Luisita in its report. It does nothing but bring back the spotlight on the land reform issues that have plagued our family for many decades now.  Nakalimutan na sana ng ating mga kababayan ito, pero binigyang pansin na naman ng Rappler.  Akala ko pa naman kakampi ko ang Rappler,” Aquino said from his Times Street residence in Quezon City.

The Adobo Chronicles tried to send a message to Rappler CEO Maria Ressa for comment, but we have been blocked from her accounts some time ago.
