Manila Standard: "Witnesses finger Leila"

SHARE:

The suggestive headline of Manila Standard regarding De Lima caught massive attention and netizens are either amused or annoyed.

Catchy headlines are often used in articles to gain attention but Manila Standard sure went overboard on this one.

Filipino netizen Chris Delacruz, recently posted a photo of an issue of Manila Standard newspaper on Facebook, denouncing the headline of the front page.


The headline was indeed catchy - "Witnesses finger Leila" - and Delacruz, as an English language trainer, couldn't help but criticize Manila Standard's editors. He asserted that the newspaper's editors have stooped so low and reminded them the importance of the proper usage of words.

The newspaper covered the recent testimonies of high-profile personalities against Senator Leila De Lima. A picture of the senator was on the left side while the witnesses are on the right. The headline surely complements the pictures and will imply a suggestive idea upon looking at it.


The post of Delacruz went viral and many netizens found it amusing while there were some others, like the former, who are not happy with it as it is just so wrong to be in a proper newspaper. Manila Standard is not a tabloid kind so people are disappointed with the company for this issue.
