Two Faces of Manila News

International Connotation

Internationally, it simply means news in or from the Philippines. It is more commonly called Philippine news nowadays.

Here’s a headline example of it – A giant, 1 tonner crocodile captured by villagers in Agusan marshland in Mindanao. At 21 feet long (6.4m), it landed in the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s longest and biggest.

International journalism derives outstanding Philippine news from news centers in Metro Manila. At times, international correspondents don’t need to go to the provinces to gather repetitive news. But… Some go for the action they want to feel themselves…

Locally, it is interpreted by Filipinos as news emanating from Metro Manila. It is particularly true with Filipinos residing outside the metro. Similarly, it is also referenced to the City of Manila.

Manila News… Turning Digital

People Want Speed

When I missed watching a Philippine Basketball Association championship game on TV, I go to the Internet and find who won. After a few days, I watch that missed game on a podcast.

The paper news? Well…

The papers have the print next day. I can’t wait for it. I wanted fast information. And many Filipinos are now behaving similarly. Clearly…

Paper copy can’t have the speed the digital lane has. Of important note is when concerned Filipinos want immediate news about disaster. For instance…

The massive floods in Luzon Philippines in 2011 and 2012, including Metro Manila, would make you impatient to wait for the morning news the next day.

It’s awful, paper prints can’t put up the news speedily as the Internet does.

Paper Copy Is Going Away

Filipino publishers of printed news have already seen the shifting news medium from paper to the digital form in 2005. But they were quick to adjust.

By 2010, most big newspaper firms were already running e-news parallel to their print versions. Even as they continue to make sales, they know paper copy is going away. That’s why…

In the not so distant future, this delivery boy may not be hurling newspaper copies into people’s front yards anymore.

Be that as it may, providers of news are all too aware of the digital rampage. And there’s one area they take notice of. It’s…

International Content

Scant International News

News contained in domestic news media lack international content. That’s what the local populace normally gets. As if scantiness is more of a need. It’s because…

Local broadcast and print media do not need to bombard its audience with international news. The people want less of it. They only want those that are relevant to them. Instead…

There’s more need for local news.

Too Western

A growing number of Filipinos want international news other than what the West provides. Such news carries international news that is too Western.

Internet news provides the alternative sources. And the borders between truth and lies somehow get better defined and better understood.
