SAN JOSE, California (The Adobo Chonicles, San Jose Bureau) – Since 2013, The Adobo Chronicles (AC) has been reporting unbelievable news from its bureaus worldwide, including the Philippines.
But starting in 2020, the San Jose, Calfornia-based news outfit will say goodbye to its Philippine Bureau.
Its Philippine Bureau will be relocated to the Intenational Space Station. AC will hold the distinction of the first news outlet to establish news operations in space.
The decision follows the signing by President Donald Trump of a new measure creating the 6th branch of the U.S. Military — the U.S. Space Force.
”Now that we are assured of a safe space for our news operations as a result of the creation of the U.S. Space Force, we are ready to explore the rest of the universe,” AC’s publisher said.
AC wil continue to report on Philippine developments but it will do so on a better perspective from above. It will be able to monitor events not only in the Philippines but elsewhere on earth with the help of space technology.
Upon hearing of the AC announcement, Rappler CEO Maria Ressa reportedly reprimanded her market development staff for not having the foresight to do what AC is now doing. “We just lost the opportunity to be ahead of the curve. Shall we remain on earth just holding the line?” she told her board of directors and staff.
