The Philippine News Agency (PNA) is once again in the hot seat following the discovery of a string of glaring errors in some of the headlines on its website.
A netizen first posted screenshots of what appears to be a PNA article, where the title contains the editor’s notes to a certain employee.
But that’s just actually the tip of the iceberg. Other netizens did some digging and discovered that there are even older PNA articles with similar errors.
What’s even funnier is that these can also be searched via Google, as shown by former Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Abigail Valte.
Due to this, the PNA site went “under maintenance” and was back online around 6 p.m. after taking down the erroneous articles.
Communications Secretary Martin Andanar, for his part, issued an order that tasked a handful of undersecretaries to assist in supervising the PNA.
The PNA has recently committed numerous errors such as using a pineapple brand’s logo for an article about the Labor Department. Here’s what Andanar has to say about the recent blunders of the embattled state-run news agency.
