NEWS should be like the ubiquitous Pinoy pan de sal – hot, easy to chew and ready to go.
For the past 30 years, Manila Standard has been delivering news as fresh as they come and as straightforward as we can make it to be, because we believe in telling the stories that really matter, in a way that will make our readers, fully informed and enlightened.
We are also similarly proud of our editors and reporters whose passion for their craft is equaled only by their sense of fun and camaraderie.
Yes, they’re dead serious in beating the deadline, but they are just as seriously funny (and often corny), in a more-or-less futile bid to somehow ease the daily stress of newspaper work.
And we haven’t even gotten to the backbone of the newspaper. The Manila Standard Opinion section has been the home of many influential opinion-makers who have shaped public perception on many political points of view.
In fact, allow us to brag a little, as we enumerate some of our more seasoned and award-winning columnists, including Louie Beltran, Adele Chua, Emil Jurado, Jojo Robles, Antonio Lopez and Atty, Rita Linda Jimenez, among others.
Now, if you’ve got coffee, we’ll make sure to complete your day.
