    Congratulations Manila Times, last Presidential Election, kayo lang ang nababasa ko na hindi naging bias ang mga balita unlike sa ibang malalaking Broad SHIT! na bayaran ng Yellow Army.

  2. Congratulations! Please continue employing and rewarding the brightest columnists working for this newspaper. There’s so many press-titutes nowadays and they can be found in other major broadsheet newspapers.

    Congratulations Manila Times for balanced reporting. Hindi katulad nung bayarang Philippine Daily Inquirer na halatang-halata kung sino ang mga political idols nila. Sobrang bias.

  4. CONGRATULATIONS, MANILA TIMES !!!
    ORCHIDS FOR YOU !!!
    YOU’RE REALLY NUMBER 1 !!!
    Ang gagaling magsulat ng mga columnists ninyo. Parang mga theses, mga dissertations, ang mga sinusulat nila. Hindi mother statements. At totoong mga NANGYAYARI ang ibinabalita nila.
    Maraming salamat po sa pagbibigay ninyo sa publiko ng mga katotohonan, historical facts: contemporary as well as of romote past. Kung may Pilipino counterpart sana ang diyaryo ay mas lalapad ang readership at ma-eeducate and masang Pinoy come election time. More power to you.
