Manila Bulletin photo: "Coffin of Gloria Arroyo"

James Ryan Jonas

Joining ABS-CBN’s booboo on the death of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, err… former President Cory Aquino, the Manila Bulletin also had a similar mistake in its supplement issue released yesterday, August 6.
The caption on the photo published in the Manila Bulletin says:
With Utmost Care. Military honor guard carefully moves the coffin of President Arroyo out of the Manila cathedral.
The newspaper photo below.
Manila Bulletin: “Coffin of President Arroyo”
"Coffin of Gloria Arroyo (GMA)"

Lapse in judgment? Freudian slip? Wishful thinking?
You decide.
