The publisher's flagship publication is a 5 1/4 by 8 1/4 inch broadsheet printed on recycled paper. It contains 32 pages with the front page being dominated by news coverage. There are also two inside pages: one is a glossy magazine called Preview with content similar to that of a magazine issue; the other is an advertising page called Metrobús. In addition, there are four sections on the back page: ones for sports, weather, stocks, and comics.
Manila Bulletin has three offices - one in Makati City, one in Parañaque City, and one in Santa Rosa City - each headed by a regional director who is responsible for producing quality content for their respective regions or groups of provinces.
Bulletin management believes that good journalism is essential for a healthy democracy and that quality reporting can only come from behind a wall of independence. Therefore, they have maintained a strong policy of separation between themselves and government officials by not publishing letters to the editor nor soliciting opinion pieces. Instead, they hire independent consultants to provide news analysis.

Manila Bulletin is considered one of the most influential newspapers in the Philippines. It is owned by the Manilla-based Manuel V. Pangilinan Group, which also owns radio stations DXMS and DZRH. The paper was founded as La Vanguardia in 1898 by Dr. Jose Rizal after he was exiled to Mindanao. In 1969, it was bought by American media mogul William Randolph Hearst who closed it down within months due to high production costs. In 1971, it was reopened by its directors with support from prominent businessmen such as Carlos P. Garcia and Leonardo J. Capili. In 1986, it was again shut down when President Ferdinand Marcos declared a "people's war" against communism. The paper was restored two years later under the direction of former New York Times reporter Vicente L. Rafael.
In 1994, the Pangilinans acquired the newspaper for $15 million and has been profitable ever since. Today, it is printed at the Press Printing Company in San Fernando, California and distributed throughout the Philippines. The paper has a circulation of more than 250,000 copies.

Broadsheet and tabloid newspapers are the two primary forms of newspapers. Serious publications, such as The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, use broadsheet pages with six columns. Because of the serious tone of the articles provided, such newspapers are frequently referred to as "heavy." Tabloids are typically less formal in their demeanor and often feature sensationalistic stories covering entertainment, politics, and sports.
The term newspaper is used for any publication that reports news and opinions about events happening in the world. Newspapers can be found everywhere in the world; some are national newspapers which cover events nationwide, while others may focus on a single state or region. There are local newspapers that only cover events within a certain distance of their office location. National newspapers may report on topics such as current affairs, sports, or entertainment but they all include stories written by journalists who investigate these subjects first-hand. Opinion pieces often follow stories in newspapers to express thoughts and views different from those reported by staff writers.
Newspaper editors decide what content will be published in their papers. They may choose to print an article because they feel it is important information for their readers. Sometimes articles are printed even though editors don't want them to be public because they like to surprise their readers with unique stories!
Some articles in newspapers require more space than others.
A tabloid newspaper has a smaller page size than a broadsheet. Broadsheets are larger newspapers that have long been associated with higher-quality journalism, even if the newspaper is currently printed on smaller pages. Today, many large cities have both a tabloid and a broadsheet newspaper. The terms are used interchangeably by journalists and readers.
Tabloids are usually sold for less than $1 per copy. This means that they can be priced lower than broadsheets, which typically sell for more than this amount. As a result, tabloids tend to be more popular with readers who can't afford to spend much money on newspapers.
Broadsheets often have larger typefaces and more space between columns on each page. They are also generally longer lasting than tabloids; the Los Angeles Times is an example of a broadsheet that has been in continuous publication since 1885.
Smaller newspapers such as these may report only local news or carry supplements advertising various products and services. Often, they will include an opinion section where readers can express themselves through letters to the editor. Some smaller newspapers, such as those published in rural areas, may not have a website but instead print their articles online at no charge.
Many small newspapers are owned by larger companies that may want to avoid competing against itself.
