MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Incoming Press Secretary Trixie Cruz-Angeles is proving her diplomatic mettle in her decision to accommodate both mainstream news media and bloggers/vloggers in as far as membership in the Malacañang Press Corps is concerned.
The elite news media have not been receptive to the idea of including bloggers/vloggers in the MPC.
So in a brilliant compromise, Cruz-Angeles has decided to create two separate MPCs.
The bloggers/vloggers will be accredited as the Malacañang Press Corps while the mainstream news media will now be known as the Malacañang Press Corpse.
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – In keeping with his campaign promise of unity, President-elect Bongbong Marcos said today that he intends to keep August 21 each a year as a national non-working holiday.
Republic Act No. 2956, signed into law in 2004, declares August 21 of every year as “Ninoy Aquino Day” commemorating the death anniversary of former Senator Benigno “Ninoy” S. Aquino Jr.
Marcos, however said that he will rename the holiday to ”Louise Araneta-Marcos Day,” to celebrate his wife’s birthday.
