MENLO PARK, California (The Adobo Chronicles, San Jose Bureau) – Even as 48 states federal regulators have filed lawsuits against Facebook accusing the social media giant of illegally crushing competition by buying out its rivals, Mark Zuckerberg told The Adobo Chronicles that his company is planning on acquiring Rappler.

This announcement is an apparent move by Zuckerberg to get back at Rappler CEO Maria Ressa who, in the past, had called out Facebook for its “greed,” and to “clean up the toxic waste” on its platform.

Because foreigners are not allowed under Philippine law to own and operate media in the country, Zuckerberg said all he wants to do is “purchase Rappler and trash it into oblivion.”

It’s the end for the Ressa era!
