Bible Week campaign. Written  by  Student #2.  Unedited by blog admin

        Quote “On the front page of the January 14 issue of the Philippine Daily Inquirer was a story with the headline “Former drug addicts now high on God.”

      Quote “This article has the trappings of a press release turned into news, given that it heavily relied on a single source and was printed – just in time – for the National Bible Week. This is in violation of Article II of the Code of Professional and Ethical Conduct of the Philippine Press Institute which says that “Individual journalists must weigh their obligations against the impact of: Involvement in particular activities, affiliation with causes or organizations, acceptance of favors or preferential treatment, financial investment, outside employment and friendships.”

          Quote “Of course, articles that tackle similar issues such as religion and stories that involve the youth should be given column space, but the front page is never a place for press releases disguised as news articles.” Closed-quote

 

      (From blog admin: who was the source for the news story?)
