MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Rappler tops the list of news sources in the Philippines, according to a new poll released by Publicus Asia.
But it is not the top spot that its convicted CEO Maria Ressa was hoping for. Rappler was No. 1 as the least-trusted news source.
Rappler scored a high 43.5% in the low trust category.
This Publicus Asia poll all but confirms earlier studies conducted by the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at Oxford University which showed that Rappler is the least-trusted news brand in the Philippines.
CONGRATULATIONS TO RESSA AND HER RAPPLERETTES for this well-deserved accolade!
