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!

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.
