MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – In its bid to be the first to report on a still developing, unconfirmed story, Rappler reported that the globe at the SM Mall of Asia was stolen. That fueled a lot of speculation and amazement on how such a giant structure could be lifted out of its location. Perhaps by helicopter or a high-towering crane?
Well it turns out the globe wasn’t stolen but was just due for maintenance.
Our verdict on Rappler’s report? FAKE NEWS.
