Rappler Can’t Tell The Difference Between Advocate And News Source

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Rappler and Maria Ressa once said that The Adobo Chronicles can’t tell the difference between satire and fake news, but that has been long debunked.

Now, the tables are turned.

Rappler which claims to be a reliable source of truth and news seems to confuse its mandate with advocacy.

Case in point: it is advocating for the immediate release of former Senator Leila de Lima which which is not within the purview of a non-partisan, non-political, non-biased news media.

But we’re The Adobo Chronicles. So we can make fun of Rappler’s memes as a way of calling attention to its bias, political leaning, mediocrity and cluelessness.
