Move Over, Rappler, Here Comes De Lima Express!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – It is often said that when a door closes, a window opens.

Earlier, we reported that Rappler is closing down its offices in the Philippines and Indonisia — a collateral victim of the rising cases of Covid-19 in the two ASEAN countries.

But no worries, there is not going to be a void when it comes to fair, accurate, hepatitic and hard-punching whorenalism that the Maria Ressa-owned online news portal is known for.

Enter De Lima Express, the latest news media venture that promises to bring about a well-informed citizenry as the Philippines gears up for the new normal.

It’s a tabloid that’s also available online — owned, published, edited and written by incarcerated Senator Leila de Lima.

In an interview with The Adobo Chronicles, de Lima denied rumors that her new  publication is funded by Omidyar Network or any foreign investors, not even PDR (Philippine Depositary Receipt) holders. So, no issues there with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

De Lima Express’ editorial offices are located at the Philippine National Police headquarters in Quezon City.
