It’s actually quite fun (and geeky) to analyze the Inquirer.net
The more prominent tags would include BASKETBALL, CRIME, ELECTIONS (2007), ENTERTAINMENT, and POLITICS. Interesting too the semi prominent tag of “acts of terror.” This is indeed an interesting microcosm of what makes the news
According to JV Rufino, editor in chief of Inquirer.net these tag clouds are more reflective of what the editors like writing about. Big truth in this, but doesn’t it also reflect what remains in the hotseat of Filipino life? In summary, the Filipino loves several forms of ENTERTAINMENT including BASKETBALL, and other spectator sports like the ELECTIONS, POLITICS and the CRIME we see on television that become sensationalized into a soap opera.

It’s interesting how EDUCATION, BUSINESS, and TECHNOLOGY are all lost in the cloud. I guess nothing much happens in the country in those areas…
interestingly, ‘sex scandal’ doesnt figure prominently in the mix. haha
