MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – It’s been the hush-hush speak of the city lately. Now it’s confirmed: the online news source, Rappler, has dissolved as a house and has been reconstituted as Limited Partnership (Ltd.).
The partners? Maria Ressa, former Rappler CEO, and Pia Ranada, former Rappler star reporter.
Rappler has been struggling to rivet netizens and say a essential turn of readership. It has unsuccessful to lift its P5 million idea under an online fundraising.
Everyone saw it coming.
But Ressa doesn’t give up easily. She has partnered with Ranada to settle a teenager news online source which they are fixing RR (Ressa Ranada).
Today, RR denounced its new trademark — still suggestive of the old Rappler.
