A tabloid online news platform called Abante that looks like an anti-administration media propaganda site wrote that Vice President Leni Robredo’s lawyer waited for an hour in front of the Manila Cathedral in Intramuros, Manila for Bongbong Marcos and his lawyer, Atty. Vic Rodriguez for allegedly signing an agreement with regards to Macalintal’s challenges.

[VIDEO]: Election lawyer Romulo Macalintal dares Bongbong Marcos to commit in writing that he would drop his election protest against VP Leni Robredo if it is not proven that SD cards were used for poll fraud.
Publicity Stunt or Losing his Mind?
Macalintal is quoted as saying that; “The absence of former Senator Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos and Atty. Vic Rodriguez is a clear admission and proof that their claimed “massive electoral fraud” on 13 Secure Digital (SD) cards from unused Vote Counting Machines (VCMs) that favored Vice President Leni Robredo and caused the defeat of Marcos was baseless, frivolous, self-serving and were merely intended as media stunt”, according allegedly to Macalintal. One thing, the Manila Cathedral is for worship and not for signing papers.
Petition Filed by Bongbong Marcos
Maccalintal’s challenges are already ignored because it can only come from a crazy lawyer. Bongbong Marcos already files a petition before the Supreme Court (SC) on Thursday, January 26. It seeks to start the preliminary conference of his election protest against Robredo. Macalintal should know the proper legal process as a veteran election lawyer and not wait in vain at the church.
Who Stages Misinformation?
Common sense tells readers how hilarious the pro-Leni Robredo supporters can become by spreading wrong information just to favor their political bet. If Macalintal really waits for Marcos at the church, when there’s no confirmed appointment made, then there’s something seriously wrong with him. If this is just a publicity stunt, the creators of this online medium involved should learn more about journalism – to be a bit credible in what they are trying to do.
Based on the comments in this specific article of Abante, it is obvious how the news create haters that immediately bashed Bongbong Marcos without fact-checking if the information is true or not. Now, who is spreading misinformation?
