Some claim Western Visayas for their age. Others claim the number one tag for the emptiness of it. Still others overstress the people on how to read and understand the news. Never mind the fly-by nights. But what is it that really matters in the field of journalism? Longevity and number? Self proclaim leadership?

The Daily GUARDIAN has proven that having a vision and mission of a balanced and responsible newspaper is the secret to leadership in the newspaper industry. While other outlets have disclaimers and fictitious editorial staff, The Daily Guardian has withstood the test of time, unwavering in our ideals as we remain focused on our objective of giving Ilonggos a regional newspaper they can trust and respect.

The Daily GUARDIAN’s birth has revolutionized the newspaper industry in Western Visayas through fair and balanced news, exciting and edifying graphics and visuals, and views and opinions that matter to the lives of our readers. All of these factors have made The Daily GUARDIAN the most read, respected and imitated daily newspaper in the region.

Obviously we set the pace and command the trend. Why gamble on copycats?
