MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – When it comes to the world’s top satirical news sites, the Philippines is well represented!
The leading Filipino-themed satirical news sites The Adobo Chronicles (AC) and Rappler both made it to the world’s top satires for 2019.
AC is in the 30th spot among the top 75, and Rappler is in the 76th spot.
Ironically, Rappler and its CEO Maria Ressa have long maintained that AC does not qualify as “satire,” while AC has always acknowledged that Rappler IS satire, bordering on “fake.”
Regardless, the inclusion of both sites is a huge honor for the country, considering the tough competition among news sites in the world today.
Mabuhay, AC and Rappler!
