FACT CHECK: Rappler Spreads Fake News on Bongbong Marcos Disqualification Case!

In reporting on the disqualification case brought against President-elect Bongbong Marcos before the Philippine Supreme Court, Rappler, the least-trusted news brand whose CEO is a convicted criminal, chose to cite the DQ petitioners instead of the ultimate source, the 1987 Constitution.

The petitioners claim that if Marcos is disqualified, it should be defeated presidential candidate Leni Robredo who takes over the presidency.


Article VII, Section 7 of the Constitution clearly states that if the president-elect fails to qualify, the vice president-elect takes over. Clear as crystal!


Rappler’s report is: FAKE NEWS!
