MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – It’s been a long time coming! Bloggers and satirists are now eligible to become members of the Malacañang Press Corps, thanks to incoming Press Secretary Trixie Cruz-Angeles
The new policy which is not really a new policy because it was a policy during the tenure of PCOO Secretary Martin Andanar who failed to implement the policy, was a big disappointment for the National Press Club, Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster ng Pilipinas, Center for Investigative Reporting, and the elite news media like Rappler, News5, Inquirer and ANC.
Among those initially approved to become MPC members are:
Sass Rogando Sasot
The Adobo Chronicles
Cebu Dairy News
The Professional Heckler
Pinoy Ako Blog would have been approved but Jover Laurio decided to stop blogging the day after Bongbong Marcos was elected 17th President.
It’s more fun in the Philippines!
