Reuters To The Rescue: Rappler Is Not The Least-Trusted News Brand In The Philippines!

LONDON, The United Kingdom (The Adobo Chronicles, Paris Bureau) – The Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism at the University of Oxford has come to the rescue of Rappler.

This, after Reuters released its latest study on media trust showing that Maria Ressa’s online business is the least-trusted news brand in the Philippines.

In a statement issued, Reuters said that their data in the study “should not be treated as a list of the most trusted (news) brands.

When asked by The Adobo Chronicles for clarification on the statement, Rasmus Nielsen, Director of the Reuters Institute said that since the Philippines’ Securities and Exchange Commission had previously revoked Rappler’s media license, it is no longer considered news media, but rather a vlog.

Leni Robredo Camp Plans To Sue Rappler!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The camp of outgoing Vice President Leni Robredo has threatened to sue those who are allegedly spreading fake news.

Robredo’s announcement sent jitters to the executives and staff of Rappler, the least-trusted news brand in the Philippines whose CEO Maria Ressa is a convicted criminal.

Rappler Joins The United Vloggers and Influencers of the Philippines

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Rappler, the least-trusted news brand in the Philippines whose CEO Maria Ressa is a convicted criminal, has finally found its niche!

After the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) revoked its media license and stood by the decision after the Court of Appeals junked Rappler’s petition challenging the SEC ruling, the online new source has been reduced to a blog.

But there is light at the end of the tunnel.

A new NGO has been formed whose members are vloggers and social media influencers.

Rappler has joined as a proud member of the United Vloggers and Influencers of the Philippines (UVIP), in the hope that PCOO will consider accrediting vloggers as members of the Malacañang Press Corps.

PCOO rules require SEC registration for news media to be accredited to cover Malacañang press briefings, which practically disqualifies Rappler.

But PCOO si considering accrediting vloggers for the press corps.
