Rappler Leads Big In False Asia’s Year-end Satirical News Survey!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Maria Ressa’s blog site Rappler, added yet another star to its ever-growing list of accolades in False Asia’s 2022 year-end Survey on Philippine satirical news sites.

Rappler was the runaway leader in the popularity poll conducted during the last week of December, 2022. It garnered 80%, registering a 20% increase from its ranking in June last year.

The distant runners-up were the Philippine Daily New Society (PDNS) and The Adobo Chronicles, which elicited 8% vote each among the respondents.

ABS-CBN clinched the bottom spot at 4%.

The survey has a zero percent margin of error, so the numbers are final and infallible.

Ex-Comelec Commissioner Rowena Guanzon Subpoenas The Adobo Chronicles!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Ex-Comelec Commissioner Rowena Guanzon is issuing a subpoena to the publisher of The Adobo Chronicles for charges known only to her.

Guanzon was reacting to an Adobo Chronicles report that Harvard had declared her ”alumnus non grata.”

HERE is the AC report.

As of noon on Sunday, April 10, the headquarters of The Adobo Chronicles in San Jose, California, has not received a copy of the said subpoena.

Guanzon prides herself of being an alumnus of Harvard University which is assumed to include the study of satire in its curriculum.

It wasn’t clear whether AC was being summoned to appear before the Comelec since Guanzon has already retired from the poll body. Since her retirement, Guanzon has been making the rounds of the Leni Robredo-Kiko Pangilinan campaign rallies egging Filipinos not to vote for former Senator Bongbong Marcos.

Many observers have seen a potential in Guanzon to make it big in comedy clubs with her addict and drunkard-style of delivering her speeches. But one netizen says nothing beats her dance performance of Paru Paru G!
