#universityofthephilippines #UPDiliman The 9th Media Monitor (or any bonus not yet in) can be posted here up to Apr20 9am

Update: Kindly indicate whether you are submitting your post for bonus or for regular (e.g., or for example, on reporting on surveys, if you have not submitted any, this could be a bonus but if you did not indicate that it is for bonus, the filter will place it under “regular”); if there is no indication in the title or heading that is for “bonus”,  the “word filter” puts it under the  “regular” box and i will grade it for five points only. If you made a mistake by failing to indicate “bonus”, pls re-file it and type “bonus”   — five letters, don’t be lazy 🙂  thanks.

The 9th Media Monitor or any bonus not yet submitted can be posted here, on the same guidelines and instructions. This is the ninth — as stated many times before: any monitor not posted on the deadline is considered forfeited, which means the points of a student who did not post for that week is zero. 

    Just as a heads-up, the seventh and final bonus is on the news coverage of the final presidential debate on April 24, 2016. This bonus should be a review of the conduct of the debate by the host-news organization or by the news hosts themselves. It also includes news coverage of the debate (news, news features, “polls”, interviews of so-called “political analysts”, etc.).

    There will be no required media monitor on exam week (second week of May) in order to give time for students to review their notes in preparation for the exam.

     Therefore, the TENTH media monitor or any bonus not yet posted will be submitted in the last week of April. As stated many times before: No cramming or jamming up of posts will be allowed: only one media monitor per week will be given points. The purpose of this exercise, as stated many times before, is to build the habit of regularly viewing or reading media content with a discerning eye.

      The ELEVENTH and FINAL  media monitor or any bonus not yet posted will be submitted in the first week of May. No need to sing “My Way”, the end is not yet near.

     [As stated many times before: A forfeited monitor can no longer be posted on any week, e.g., (or for example): For the 8th media monitor, all posts are for the 8th, the 6th can no longer be posted as the 6th on the 8th, i.e., if you are only on your “6th”, it means that your 6th and 7th got zero and everyone who is updated are already on their 8th. To be redundant about it: The student needs to  regularly read and view media content with a heightened consciousness (at least once a week)  — cramming, jamming up posts, dump-submission, etc are not allowed.

   This week, it is the 9th media monitor. Kindly mark your post accordingly 🙂 ]

[if this instruction, in plain language, could still not be understood and if you require a computer-generated animation to comprehend, kindly hire a filmmaker to design cartoons as interpretation of this post 🙂 — i can however render it in dance- form, song-form, pretzel yoga poses, etc in class if it is required]

  1. Just as a heads-up, the seventh and final bonus is on the news coverage of the final presidential debate on April 24, 2016.

    There will be no required media monitor on exam week (second week of May) in order to give way for students to review their notes in preparation for the exam. Therefore, the tenth media monitor or any bonus not yet posted will be submitted in the last week of April; while the eleventh and final media monitor or any bonus not yet posted will be submitted in the first week of May. No need to sing “My Way”, the end is not yet near.

    Duterte continues surge in ABS-CBN poll
    Source: http://www.rappler.com/nation/politics/elections/2016/129983-duterte-continues-surge-abs-cbn-survey-march-april

    Davao city mayor and presidential candidate Rodrigo Duterte has been currently all over social media, especially with his latest news regarding his comments on the Australian rape victim. With this, one would assume that his presidential ratings in polls would suffer.

    However, according to the latest poll conducted by Pulse Asia (released April 19), Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte still continues to top the polls. The survey asking “If the May 2016 elections were held today, whom would you vote for as PRESIDENT OF THE PHILIPPINES?”, gave Duterte the top spot, with Poe falling in second, then Binay, Mar Roxas, and lastly, Miriam Santiago.

    The report was very good, as they not only mentioned the questions and a picture showing the results, they showed the number of participants involved (4 000 registered voters) and the the margin of error (+/- 1.5%). The report was also well written because they didn’t give any of the presidential candidates the spotlight. Though this was conducted during April 5 – 10 (before Duterte’s comments on the Australian rape victim), it will be interesting to see the next surveys that Pule Asia and SWS will release, to see if the his recent comments did anything to his presidential standing.

    http://interaksyon.com/article/126254/sws-businessworld-survey–duterte-leads-poe-marcos-steady-over-chiz

    In this article citing the SWS-Businessworld survey, Duterte topped the presidential race with 27%. He is followed by Grace Poe with 23%; Jejomar Binay with 20%; Mar Roxas with 18%; and Miriam Defensor Santiago with 3%. This is very problematic because as the author of this article said, there is a margin of error of ±3%. Thus, it was not mentioned that Duterte (24%-30%) and Poe (20%-26%) are statistically tied for the top spot. Moreover, Poe, Binay (17%-23%) and Roxas (15%-21%) are also statistically tied if we use the margin of error in explaining such results. For the vice presidential results, Marcos (26%) and Escudero (21%) are also statistically tied but the article only emphasized that Marcos was leading.

    There was also no mention of the specific question asked in the survey conducted. Although the margin of error and sample size was disclosed, there was a failure to truthfully inform the public about the interpretation of the survey results. I also find it doubtful that the margin of error was placed at the latter part of the long article. Thus, there is a high probability that the readers might overlook this detail.

    This “news” article by GMA presents the new Macbook released by apple this April 2016, complete with all its specs and some positive testimonials by experts. The link to the article in the gmanews website is posted on facebook, without any disclaimer whether it is an ad or not. It is an ethical problem in journalism because it clearly is an advertisement rather than a news. If they want to be fair, they should make articles for all other laptop manufacturers who release new laptops too.

  5. Kindly indicate whether you are submitting your post for bonus or for regular (e.g., or for example, on reporting on surveys, if you have not submitted any, this could be a bonus but if you did not indicate that it is for bonus it will fall under “regular”); if there is no indication in the title or heading that is for “bonus”, my filter will put it under regular and you will get only five points for it. If you made a mistake by failing to indicate “bonus”, pls re-file it and type “bonus”. thanks.
