Readers of the provincial section of national broadsheet Manila Bulletin got one big surprise today when a curious picture was published on page 20:

manila-bulletin-faux-pasNotice the caption: “With utmost care. Military honor guard carefully moves the coffin of President Arroyo out of the Manila Cathedral.”

I was told, however, that the major faux pas was only published in the early edition and that the section containing the picture was promptly removed in editions distributed in Visayas and Mindanao.

Out of curiosity, I checked the Manila Bulletin copies here in Bukidnon…the word was right. The Manila Bulletin provincial section was no longer included in the set that I got.

I wonder if the section editor will get the boot?

  • From what I’ve heard, it’s a shame the caption was wrong.

    From a Filipino I know: “The only crime here is that the writer raised false hopes.”
