quote “Last Dec.5, 2007, the Philippine Daily Inquirer published the article entitled ‘Mindanao to get 30% of budget’ relating that Mindanao projects will have a bigger portion of the national budget for the next year. Although it featured quotes from House Speaker Jose de Venecia Jr. and comments from Rep. Edcel Lagman of the House Committee on Appropriations, the said article had no author, and looked suspiciously like a press release since it only featured the side of the government, violating the provision in the code of ethics on reporting the other side of the issue. Since an increase in a portion from the national budget can create a significant impact, the news should have mentioned more details on why, how much was needed, for what projects in Mindanao, etc. ” end of quoteDec 6, 1:39 PM — XXXXX

Quote “During the commercial break of tonight’s edition of TV Patrol, an advertorial about the product Lactum was aired with the show’s weatherman – Kim Atienza – appearing in it. Atienza reprised his role as a reporter, interviewing a doctor about the benefits of the said product while other images flashed on the screen, thereby giving a sense of authenticity and making it seem as if the commercial was an actual interview [for the show]. No sign was posted on the screen indicating it was a commercial.

Quote “Clearly there is conflict of interest, as defined in the Philippine Press Institute expanded code of ethics, given that Atienza took on “outside employment” with a company that could be “the subject of news, past or future;”. Regardless that he is the weatherman, his being part of the show [TV Patrol] could influence the appearance of the advertisements and vice versa. It also violates section 5 KBP code of ethics for television given that it’s format may lead others to think that it is “commercials(sic) in the guise of news”.” Closed-quote.

Quote “In last Wednesday’s episode of “Bandila” with a news segment on the talks between the media and the police regarding media arrests in future situations similar to the Manila Pen siege, the people behind the news program failed to provide identification for the people they interviewed to give their comments. Jessica Soho, Maria Ressa, and other personalities were not properly identified because no name captions came out at the bottom of the screen.
Quote “It is stated in the Philippine Journalist’s Code of Ethics that sources should be properly identified. Likewise, the KBP Code of Ethics also says that captions showing the name and designation of the people interviewed should be in the news segment. I think this was an improper practice by those in ABSCBN because even if the persons interviewed are already famous or well-known, it is still important that they be given proper identification as part of the standards in news.Dec 7, 12:26 PM” closed-quote.
