MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The Olympic fever continues to grip the Philippines with Filipino athletes winning medals — gold, silver and bronze — in the Tokyo competitions.

The medal haul is also evident in the country’s news business as Publicus Asia released its latest survey on the most-trusted news outlets in the country.

Isko Moreno Condemns Cheating In Elections survey

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – “How can we expect honest elections in 2022, when there is already cheating in the pre-elections survey?” This was the big question posed today by Manila Mayor Isko Moreno.

Moreno was reacting to an Octa Research elections survey that showed Presidential daughter Sara Duterte topping the polls for the people’s choice to succeed Rodrigo Duterte.

The same survey, as reported by The Manila Bulletin, also showed Bongbong Marcos coming in second, and Moreno, third.

But wait.

Marcos got 13 % in the poll and Moreno got 14%, so why is Marcos second and Moreno third?

Moreno condemned the cheating, calling it Leni math.

Philippine Celebrities Come Out!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Filipinos are always ahead of the game. While most people celebrate Christmas in December, the joyous season starts September 1 in the Philippines.

National Coming Out Day is not till October 11, but already, Philippine celebrities are coming out left and right.

First to publicly announce that he was gay was actor Raymund Gutierrez. He came out in a big way through a cover story in a magazine.

Now, television host Willie Revillame is reportedly going to make a very important and shocking announcement on his daily show, “Wowowin” according to a report from The Manila Times.

Most people already know his plans to run for Senator in the 2022 Philippine elections, so his big announcement is likely similar to Gutierrez’s.
