MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Former PNoy Spokesperson Edwin Lacierda and self-proclaimed investigative journalist Raïssa Robles have made fun of Rodrigo Duterte’s Visayan accent, particularly the President’s mention of the word ‘stragol’ (struggle) in a recent public statement.
Lacierda has since apologized, claiming it was not his intention to mock the Visayan dialect while admitting it was culturally insensitive.
But Robles is not throwing in the towel. On the contrary, she plans to write to the Dutch Government and ask that Netherlands-based Sass Rogando Sasot be deported.
It all started when Sasot posted a ‘riddle’ that ridiculed Robles for making fun of Duterte’s accent. The post consisted of four witty lines that all rhymed with ‘’stragol.’
That didn’t sit well with Robles who responded directly to Sasot, saying that she will be writing to the Dutch and Duchess of The Netherlands — sorry, we meant to say Dutch Embassy — to warn them that the blogger is spreading fake news.
Suddenly, the investigative journalist, author of a now irrelevant book on the Marcos Martial Law, and newbie public speaker with a thick English accent has turned to her childlike instinct to make sumbong to higher authorities whom she hopes would side with her frailties as a woman.
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Mainstream media companies are expected to show up in full force on Monday when the Senate hearing on the alleged 2016 Electoral Fraud continues.
The last hearing, in which Atty. Glenn Chong questioned the Comelec and Smartmatic’s electronic transmissions a day before the actual May 9, 2016 elections, was not covered live by many Mainstream news outlets.
However, The Adobo Chronicles and Rappler will be barred from covering Monday’s hearing.
The Senate Secretariat explained the decision:
”Adobo Chronicles is a satire news site while Rappler is a fake news site.”
We at The Adobo Chronicles wholeheartedly accept the Senate decision.
