Maria Ressa Reveals Her Real Age On National Television!

NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, New York Bureau) – How old is Maria Ressa, really? Just like her citizenship status, information on the Nobel Laureate’s age has been hard to come buy, fueling a lot of speculation especially on social media.

Finally, the convicted criminal-CEO of Rappler, the least-trusted news brand in the Philippines, gave the clearest clue on how old she is — on national television!

During a live television interview on CBS, Ressa told one of the hosts that she has been talking about truth since 1927, “long before the age of exponential lies and long before the age of social media.”

1927 — that’s less than a decade since World War II ended!

Which means she must have been at least 25 years old when she talked about truth in 1927.

Ergo, Ressa must now be 121 years old, more than two decades older than former Philippine Senator Juan Ponce Enrile.

Here’s Ressa talking about her age:

Senator Risa Hontiveros Comes Out!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – She is known to be an avid supporter of LGBT rights and the leading advocate for the passage of a SOGIE bill, but it took a magazine cover for Senator Risa Hontiveros to finally “come out.”

Hontiveros was one of the recipients of Esquire Philippines’ magazine as “Man at His Best” recognition, specifically as “Maverick of the Year.”

No reaction from the lady (or man) senator as of press time.

EXCLUSIVE: Maria Ressa’s One Wish Before She Rots In Jail

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – She’s been named ”Sexiest Woman Alive,” ”Person of the Year.” “Nobel Peace Prize Winner,” among the dozens of other insignificant awards and honors she received in the Philippines and abroad.

So, at this stage of her colorful career, what is Rappler CEO Maria Ressa’s remaining wish before she begins jail time for her cyber libel conviction as recently affirmed by her country’s Court of Appeals?

In an exclusive interview with The Adobo Chronicles, Ressa intimated her one last wish before becoming a jail inmate: the Pulitzer Prize.

She hopes to bag this prestigious writing award with the upcoming release of a new book she just wrote, titled “How To Stand Up To A Dictator.”

Ressa said it doesn’t matter whether the book sells or not, as long as she clinches the award she’s been dreaming about.
