Rappler, Vera Files, PCIJ, CMFR Unveil New Logos

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Amid allegations that it has received foreign funding in violation of the Philippine Constitution, Vera Files, the Internet fact-checking entity headed by Ellen Tordesillas, has unveiled a new logo.

Soon thereafter, Rappler CEO Maria Ressa did the same thing. And so did the Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism and the Center for Media Freedom and Responsibility.

Vera Files, along with Rappler, PCIJ and CMFR have all reportedly received millions of foreign funds, including from the National Endowment For Democracy (NED)—“widely viewed as a CIA propaganda surrogate.”

Manila Times columnist Rigoberto Tiglao says the NED funds received by the four entities is at least P100 Million.

Speaking with The Adobo Chronicles, Tordesillas said that she wanted Vera Files’ logo to be more representative of the true state of her media company. When we spoke with Ressa, she simply said, “ditto!”

PCIJ and CMFR did not return our Facebook Messenger requests for comment.
