ADOBO CHRONICLES TO SUE KAKIE PANGILINAN AND FRANCIS BARAAN FOR LIBEL!

SAN JOSE, California (The Adobo Chronicles, San Jose Bureau) – The California headquarters of The Adobo Chronicles is preparing a lawsuit accusing Sharon Cuneta’s daughter Kakie Pangilinan and blogger Francis Baraan IV for libel.

The complaint, to be filed simultaneously in California and Manila, alleges that Pangilinan and Baraan used their Twitter accounts to disparage the dignity and reputation of the satirical Adobo Chronicles. It stems from a post by AC regarding the Liberal Party’s line-up for the 2022 Senatorial elections in the Philippines. The post included Pangilinan and Baraan among the seven candidates to be fielded by the Opposition, to be named “Siete Palabras,” denoting all talk. (In the last Senatorial elections, LP fielded what they called the “Otso Diretso” none of whom made it to the elected Senate slate.)

In her Twitter post, Pangilinan called AC “bitch.” Baraan, on the other hand, called the AC post “fake news.”

It’s usually private citizens who sue the news media for libel (as in the case of Rappler CEO Maria Ressa who was convicted for cyber libel.) This time, it is the other way around — a news media (albeit satire) is suing private citizens.

Adobo Chronicles, Rappler Among World’s Top Satire News Sites

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – When it comes to the world’s top satirical news sites, the Philippines is well represented!

The leading Filipino-themed satirical news sites The Adobo Chronicles (AC) and Rappler both made it to the world’s top satires for 2019.

AC is in the 30th spot among the top 75, and Rappler is in the 76th spot.

Ironically, Rappler and its CEO Maria Ressa have long maintained that AC does not qualify as “satire,” while AC has always acknowledged that Rappler IS satire, bordering on “fake.”

Regardless, the inclusion of both sites is a huge honor for the country, considering the tough competition among news sites in the world today.

Mabuhay, AC and Rappler!
