Adobo Chronicles Hosting Free Media Seminar on ‘Terrorism’

imageSILIC0N VALLEY, California (The Adobo Chronicles ) – The Silicon Valley-based Adobo Chronicles is pleased to announced that it is sponsoring and hosting a free seminar for the media on the issue of terrorism coverage. The seminar will be held at the San Jose Convention Center on Monday, January 4, 2016.

The seminar will help media companies develop skills to be able to distinguish between terrorism and peaceful protests.

The Chronicles decided to sponsor the event after major news networks like ABC  and CNN  as well as the Associated Press (AP) reported on the take-over by armed militants of a federal building in Oregon to protest the conviction and jail sentence of an eastern Oregon ranching family for arson.

The media companies, who are quick to label any violent incidents, especially those perpetrated by people with foreign ties, as terrorist activities, have treated the Oregon incident as nothing but a peaceful protest.

Media companies interested in sending their editors and reporters to this free seminar are asked to register at AdoboChronicles.com

 

Letter Of The Month To The Adobo Chronicles

imagesEvery now and then, The Adobo Chronicles publishes letters that we receive from our readers.  This one is from Eden Claribel who lives in Baguio City, Philippines, the hometown of our editor and publisher.  Our response follows the letter.

Dear Editor:

My friends always make fun of me every time they see that I’m reading your articles. They always ask me why I read them, and my answer is always “I don’t know, I just can’t help it.”

But seriously, I am a proud fan of The Adobo Chronicles. My friends say that your articles are for dumbs. I didn’t bother to defend AdoboChron because I know that they can never understand me. They don’t appreciate satire so it’s useless to explain. Personally, I think that satirical sites are for smart people, and satirical news writers are the wittiest writers.

I admire you guys. I love how you write. I actually wish I could write like you.  Keep writing “garbage” articles (as what other people call them). I don’t mind being a garbage collector! 

yours truly,

Eden Claribel

 

Dear Eden:

Thank you for being a big fan of The Adobo Chronicles.

In case you’re wondering why you are so hooked to our stories, we put a microchip in each of our articles so that once you click on and start reading them, you’ll keep wanting to come back for more.

We are very encouraged by your letter and we promise to bring you (and hopefully, your friends) more garbage in 2016 and the years to come.

(By the way, there is no shame in being a garbage collector!)

Sincerely,

The Editor

SILICON VALLEY, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – Starting April 1, 2015, the close to 15 Million followers of The Adobo Chronicles will see a blank screen when they log on to this Internet news site. The site, headquartered in the Silicon Valley in California, will cease publication as of March 31.

The reason? The site was bought out by the Philippines’ richest man, Henry Sy.

Henry Sy remains the Philippines’ top billionnaire, according to Forbes. His net worth has increased by ten digits plus, thanks to the continued growth of his SM Investments Corp, the largest retailer in the Philippines with over 200 individual outlets around the country. The firm is one of the country’s largest conglomerates with interests in real estate development, shopping malls and banking. One of his more recent ventures: the City of Dreams Manila resort and casino, which opened in December 2014. The resort cost $1.3 billion to develop and consists of 950 rooms, 365 tables and 1,700 slot machines.

Sy is purchasing the Chronicles for an undisclosed amount.

In announcing the purchase, Sy said he can no longer stand the gullibility of his fellow Filipinos who, time and again, fail to recognize that all the stories in the Chronicles are true. “It is best to close the site down, so I decided to buy them out,” the billionnaire added.

Sy also hinted that he is in negotiations to also buy out five other Filipino news sites, namely, The Professional Heckler, So, What’s News, Eritas Times, Mosquito News, and The Philippine Chronicle.
