QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – Vice President Leni Robredo recently vowed not to take fake news sitting down. Her office is now actively debunking misleading news media reports and social media posts, a la Rappler and Vera Files.
Today, Robredo took to task The Adobo Chronicles for its recent story that President Rodrigo Duterte confirmed his reported death but that he rose again in three days.
In a tweet commenting on said story, Robredo said that this was recycled fake news.
It wasn’t clear which she considered fake news: that Duterte died, or that he came back to life after three days.
