“Agence France Press. PNG girl beheads father after he rapes her— report. Newsinfo.inquirer.net. Retrieved June 20 2013 at inquirer.net/427913/png-girl-beheads-father-after-he-rapes-her
 “ “The identities and photographs of children and women who figure in the news as victims of sexual abuse (i.e. rape, incest, sexual harassment, prostitution, battering, etc.) must not be printed, and details about their personal circumstances and identities must be withheld. In the case of incest victims, the identities of the accused and immediate family members must also be protected. Disclosure of the identities of victims of sexual abuse—but not their photographs—may be allowed only in cases when the adult victim (above 18 years old) has decided to file a case in court.” – Code of Professional and Ethical Conduct of the Philippine Press Institute (Philippine Press Institute)
“ “Single-source stories must be avoided as a rule. There is always the imperative to get a second, third or more sources, the contending parties to an issue, the expert source, the affected party, the prominent and the obscure, in the story. We must strive at all times to ascertain the truth of our sources’ assertions.” Code of Professional and Ethical Conduct of the Philippine Press Institute (Philippine Press Institute)
“Sa tulong ng mga pamantayang ito, isang ehemplo ng responsableng pamamahayag ang naipakita ng Inquirer.net at ng Agence France Press gamit ang artikulong PNG girl beheads father after he rapes her— report na inilathala nitong ika-17 ng Hulyo, 2013.
“Ayon sa artikulo, nagawang paslangin ng 18-anyos na dalaga ang kanyang sariling ama matapos siyang paulit-ulit na halayin sa kanilang tahanan sa Papua New Guinea matapos umalis ang kanyang ina kasama ang kanyang mga kapatid upang bisitahin ang iba pa nilang kamag-anak. Nang aktong muli na namang hahalayin ang dalaga kinaumagahan ay hindi na ito nakapagtimpi at gumamit na ng kutsilyo upang patayin ang ama.
“Dahil isang biktima ng panghahalay ang dalaga at suspek sa isang krimen, nanatiling lihim ang kanyang pagkakakilanlan sa publiko. Upang mapunan naman ang iba pang detalye ukol dito, isinaad ang kung saan nakatira ang dalaga maging na rin ang edad ng kanyang ama para sa pagpapatibay ng kredibilidad ng balita at upang maiwasan ang kahit anumang maling impormasyon sa identidad ng dalaga. Hindi rin naglabas ng mga litrato ang artikulo ayon na rin sa pamantayan ng etiks.
“Bukod pa dito, mapapansin din na hindi lang galing sa isang tao ang balita kundi ito mismo ay naberipika ng komunidad kung saan nakatira ang dalaga sapagkat ito rin ay kanilang pinoprotektahan sa pulisya.
“Bilang isang mamamahayag, tungkulin nitong mapangalagaan ang katauhan ng kanyang kapwa lalo pa’t kung ito ay nasasangkot sa isang sitwasyong maaaring makaapekto sa kanyang pamumuhay at  magkaroon ng dalawa o higit pang mapagkakatiwalaang mapagkukunan ng impormasyon.

“Feminist News? 
2nd opinion. Written by Kevin John Manalese
“Sex and Violence Sells.
“This is what manifests in an online article by the Huffington Post, featured in the Philippine Daily Inquirer and Star FM Manila last Monday, June 17, 2013. The articles are about the decapitation of a Father by his daughter after repeatedly raping her, in Papua New Guinea.
“Terminology is very much problematic as the articles pertain to the daughter as victim, when she is liable to murder, specifically parricide. Labels on the people involved such as suspect and victim must be carefully observed, when accusation of the crime is problematic, especially in cases such as this. The article also prove to be slanted toward accusation of the father who raped, rather than the daughter who murdered, evidenced by the appendage of a paragraph that discussed statistics about violence against women. Thus improper emphasis has been committed, as well as wrong criminal accusations. Posted by Kevin John Manalese
