Top Philippine paper in sale talks after Duterte threatTop newspaper the Philippine Daily Inquirer said Monday its owners are in talks to sell the publication, months after President Rodrigo Duterte threatened a shame campaign against them over critical coverage of his drug war. Marixi Prieto, chairwoman of the Inquirer Group of Companies, said the family had decided to quit the newspaper business and was in talks to sell it to tycoon Ramon Ang, president of top Philippine conglomerate San Miguel Corp. “The Prieto family’s decision to divest after 25 years is a strategic business decision that it believes will maximise group opportunities for the Inquirer group,” the paper said in a statement.
