CA1C6E64-0F08-4C55-967B-17C8785D07FBMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – It didn’t take long since Kris Aquino praised President Rodrigo Duterte for the Yellow bloggers to turn their backs on the ex-President’s sister.

It all started when Aquino ranted on her Instagram Account following taped segment aired by Korina Sanchez on her TV show.  The segment featured Aquino’s ex-husband James Yap.

Not only did Aquino call the segment a slap on her face by the Missus of former presidential candidate Mar Roxas whom Kris campaigned for; she also was all praises for Duterte’s kindness.

To her surprise, Aquino was instantly blocked from the Twitter accounts of her former Yellow army friends, including Jim Paredes, Cynthia Patag, Maria Ressa and Raissa Robles.

Or she was.

Now, Aquino made a 180-degree turn and is now singing praises for President Rodrigo Duterte whom she campaigned against when Mar Roxas was a presidential candidate.

How the world turns.

Is Duterte ready to nominate Aquino as the next DSWD Secretary?

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has uninimously approved the license application of The Adobo Chronicles as a media fact-checker in the Philippines.

The SEC action came just weeks after the social media giant Facebook announced its partnership with Rappler and Vera Files to fact-check news and information spread on the Internet.

The Adobo Chronicles’ new license will enable the news satire site to fact-check the fact-checkers like Rappler and Vera Files.

It will be recalled that SEC earlier revoked Rappler’s media license on the grounds that the online news source headed by Maria Ressa is partly foreign-owned which is a violation of the Philippine Constitution.  Before it donated its investment in Rappler to the the latter’s senior managers, Omidyar Network had an investment in Rappler.

The Adobo Chronicles is a Filipino-American news satire site registered with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office with Registration # 4711386.
