CLAIM: Former journalist Gilbert Remulla claims a photo of the Kalinga rally of Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. came from ABC5

RATING: FALSE


Former journalist Gilbert Remulla tweeted a photo of a campaign rally of Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr. in Tabuk, Kalinga on March 10.

Remulla claims the photo of the rally came from ABC5.  An archive of the tweet can be viewed here.

This is false.

First, there is no ABC5 news network operating in the Philippines.  ABC or the Associated Broadcasting Company is the former name of TV5.  Its news service is News5, which released the photo.

He also made the claim that News5 took the original photo.  

This is also false because the original came from the Facebook Page of Bongbong Marcos.  The same photo was also shared by Manila Bulletin. – Rommel F. Lopez
