IMG_2418WASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – Both Raissa Robles and The Adobo Chronicles have reason to celebrate these days.

The U.S. Library of Congress has purchased copies of Robles’ book, “Marcos Martial Law: Never Again” and the book version of The Adobo Chronicles.

The purchase is a great honor  for the Philippines.

Robles announced the good news on her Twitter account, while The Adobo Chronicles is yet to formally announce the purchase.

Visitors to the library in Washington, D.C. will be able to check out both books beginning July 1.  First come, first served of course.

Trillanes’ Camp Spreading Fake News That Adobo Chronicles Is ‘Fake’

IMG_2400MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – There’s nothing much that  Antonio Trillanes and his supporters can do for damage control after that embarrassing interview the senator had with Stephen Sackur of BBC.

We previously reported that Sackur practically pulverized every single comment and response by Trillanes. Nothing that the senator said could convince the hard-talking host otherwise that the former was “out of tune” with the majority of the Filipinos, especially the 75% of the population that supports President Duterte.

Now, Trillanes’ camp is resorting to a different strategy — spreading fake news.

In a Facebook post of one of Trillanes’ camp (one of the authors is a namesake of the senator), The Adobo Chronicles was tagged as “fake news.”

Our readers and followers of course know that this is farthest from the truth.

We wonder whether those who think AdoboChron is fake news were absent from class when the teacher talked about satire.

We have disclaimers all over our site.  Hell, who would name a legitimate news site, ‘Adobo?’ From the beginning, we have stood by our motto of being “your source of up-to-date, UNBELIEVABLE NEWS (capitalization supplied).

Sure, some of our readers who depend on free data for Facebook, don’t have the luxury of checking our ‘About’ page each time, but a quick Google search would show that we are listed as satire. Even memebuster, the site that warns netizens about fake stories on the Internet, defended us against another site that plagiarized our ‘story’ on Trillanes.

So to members of the Trillanes camp, we say you can’t accuse anyone of being fake by faking it yourselves.

Trillanes May Be Suing BBC, But Adobo Chronicles Will Not Sue Site that Plagiarized Us (With Update)

IMG_2395MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Philippine Senator Antonio Trillanes may be suing BBC for that infamous interview he had with BBC’s Stephen Sackur, but The Adobo  Chronicles has no plans of suing ourdailyrevelationsph.com for plagiarizing our ‘story’ on Trillanes.

It appears that the site in question copied a bulk of our Trillanes ‘story’ and passed it as legit news.

Our followers — or most anyway — know that we are a satire site.  We have disclaimers all over our site that help our readers distinguish between what’s fact and fiction in our ‘stories.’

We are a site that’s patented under U.S. laws as satire, so any attempt to copy us without appropriate credit and disclaimer is a violation of U.S. law.

But we’re not in the business of lawsuits, so we’ll let the plagiarism just pass us by.

We’ll let the brilliant analysis of memebuster make the case for us.

We hate fake news, so we take our satire work very seriously.

Oh, and ourdailyrevelationsph.com, you can apologize, and we’ll accept.

UPDATE: ourdailyrevelationsph.com has apologized and we have accepted the apology.
