Welcome to the online edition of The Standard (TS), a nationally circulated newspaper
published daily in the Philippines since February 1987.
The TS’s website, launched in August 2002, extends the newspaper’s reach beyond its traditional
readers and makes its brand of Philippine news and opinion available to a much wider and geographically diverse overseas readership.
In tone and content, the online edition mirrors the editorial thrust of the newspaper. While hewing to the traditional precepts of fairness and objectivity, TS believes the news of the day need not be staid, overly long or dry. Stories are succinct, readable and written in a lively style that has become a hallmark of the newspaper.
Opinion pieces reflect the wide range of viewpoints that contend for attention and acceptance in the place
of all Filipinos regardless of where they live call home.
Twenty-eight years saw the track record of TS as the newspaper tallboy that arrived, survived and thrived in a highly competitive industry.
With journalistic ideals still intact, the TS remains steadfast in delivering brief but concise news and information that matters.
