Singer-songwriter Jim Paredes posted on my Facebook wall my recent story on the South China Sea standoff. I don’t know how he got it.
For those who are not on Facebook, I would like to share what he posted:
Sorry, I don’t have a copy of the actual published story.
But the title says it all.
You see the word “China” splashed on the top left because the article appeared as the top story in the China section of SCMP.
The person who posted this on FB added the message in tiny print on top.
Sone one Facebook wanted to know why the title said it was only “Manila” standing up to Beijing. This is just a metaphor that foreign newspapers and wires use all the time. The name of the capital is meant to refer to the entire country.
My thanks @Jim Paredes and to all the others who made pasa-pasa this screenshot until I got it – Raissa :)
