Do you remember

Greed was chasing the minds… of pretenders
While chasing the protesters

Our ears were ringing
On the streets Marcos and military beating.
As people marched, defied them that night,
Remember how we punched, put up a fight

Aaray-aay – say do you remember
 Aah-aray-aay – rallying in September

Aah-aray-aay  – never was a cloudy day

  1. [3rd Bonus post: “First Bonus: Media Coverage of Malacañang-planned Marcos Burial at Libingan ng mga Bayani”]

    As of September 5, the Philippine Daily Inquirer have published over 100 headlines from different viewpoints about the issue at hand. Their stories included statements from politicians, progressive groups, and different sectors, Martial Law commemoration events, rallies against the burial, editorial articles, etc. Instead of only reporting about or conducting interviews with President Rodrigo Duterte, government officials, and the Marcoses, their news articles gave voice to the human rights violation victims of Martial Law, militant groups, political opposition, and even residents in Ilocos, where the body of the late former president Ferdinand E. Marcos currently resides.

    This is a good example of SPJ’s provision: “Boldly tell the story of the diversity and magnitude of the human experience. Seek sources whose voices we seldom hear.”

    ABS-CBN also inhibited the aforementioned provision by providing another point of view, a shared opinion by the Philippine Army and Communist Party of the Philippines founder, Jose Maria Sison (JMS). According to both parties, not all those buried in the Libingan ng mga Bayani (LNB) are heroes. Furthermore, JMS states that Marcos could be buried in the LNB along with the traitors and reactionary troops.

  2. Third Media Monitor [REGULAR]: De Lima on Davao blast: Don’t paint picture of conspiracy

    In an article published by Rappler on the 4th of September, 2016, De Lima shares her thoughts regarding the recent bombings in Davao City. She stressed her point that we must not accuse groups of conspiring against the administration. She said that this is not the time to “paint a picture of a conspiracy against the State among drug lords, terrorists, and the legitimate political opposition” The Abu Sayyaf had claimed responsibility already of the attack. Therefore, it is wrongful to create misleading and baseless theories.

    The article also mentioned a statement that De Lima has denied issuing. The statement reads, “It could be a strategy of Duterte forces to provide reason to declare martial law. Davao is not the safest place after all.” Even if the article is saying that De Lima had denied it, which is true, I still do not see the purpose of mentioning it at all. It could lead to misleading conclusions. This could be a breaking of the 11th code ‘Writing the story” which says “Misleading practices such as misrepresentation, trickery, impersonation and…”

    (3rd Media Monitor)–1st Regular Media Monitor : “Ph under state of lawlessness after Davao bombing”

        Since the first day of President Duterte’s governance in the Philippines, many people have been against with some of his plans and programs particularly in eliminating drugs. Even during the elections, the president was very vocal and serious in his statement on punishing those who will be proven to be related to drug operations or those who use drugs. Likewise, it was expected that crimes like what happened during that night of September 3, 2016, might be done by such desperate people who aim to stop and hinder him from fulfilling such plans. The Abu Sayaf claimed that they were the cause of the bombing. In the report presented by GMA News 24 Oras, many of the provisions from the SPJ Code of ethics and one from the extended Code of ethics of the Philippine Press Institute have been observed, namely:
    

    1. Take responsibility for the accuracy of their work. Verify information before releasing it. Use original sources whenever possible.
    2. Gather, update, and correct information throughout the life of a news story.
    3. Be vigilant and courageous about holding those in power accountable. Give voice to the voiceless.
    4. Recognize a special obligation to serve as watchdogs over public affairs and the government.
    5. Boldly tell the story of the diversity and magnitude of the human experience.
    6. Never deliberately distort facts or context, including visual information.
    7. Never plagiarize. Always attribute.
    8. Balance the public’s need for information against potential harm or discomfort.
    9. Show compassion for those who may be affected by the news coverage.
    10. Consider the long-term implications of the extended reach and permanence of publication.
    11. Single-source stories must be avoided as a rule.
    In one part of the report, it was said that the video came from someone who doesn’t want his name to be mentioned, thus, following the first and the seventh provision regarding the use of original sources. Also, the news report contained a continued update on the different angles pertaining to the bombing that occurred in Davao Night Market, which is also in line with the second provision. The comments and messages from the family of those who have been killed and wounded in the accident was presented also on TV that is included in the third provision about giving voice to the voiceless, as well as the last one about having a single source. An interview with Davao mayor, Sarah Duterte and the president himself, Rodrigo Duterte gave their statements on what happened and what they plan to do with the case, reflecting what’s written on the fourth provision. As for the distortion of information and visual details in the fifth and sixth provision, the report showed the actual images of the people who were killed but with some parts that needs to be blurred because of its gruesomeness that might not be suitable for the audience to see; also trying to show the impact of the bombing to the victims and their families. Announcements regarding the need to avoid going to the malls and undergoing inspections on some selected areas in the country was provided by the news report to assure the public’s need against potential harm in the eighth provision. The ninth and tenth provision which focuses on the long-term effects of the reported incident were seen in the act of the reporter in blurring the parts which show blood and wounds of the victims to avoid the families from the trauma of losing their loved ones.

    Reposting because I noticed that my 1st paragraph is like in a box which looks like a prompter and I don’t know why.

  5. First Bonus Point: Media Coverage of the Marcos Burial at Libingan ng mga Bayani
    Article:Duterte confirms Marcos Burial at the Libingan ng mga Bayani
    Source: http://cnnphilippines.com/news/2016/08/07/marcos-libingan-ng-mga-bayani-burial.html
    2013-71899

    President Duterte announced that former President Ferdinand Marcos would be buried at the Libingan ng mga Bayani. He said that Filipinos who opposed the burial could rally in the streets. He also commented that it would be fine for Bongbong Marcos to set the burial date on September 11 (the former President’s Birthday). After a discussion on Duterte’s statements, the article mentioned groups who planned to rally or mobilize themselves to oppose the burial.

    The article only included a light narrative of these groups planned protests on the day of the burial. There was no indication that the journalist actually interviewed these protesters. I believe that this is a violation of one of the Code of Professional and Ethical Conduct of the Philippine Press Institute’s provision on Writing the Story. The provision states,

    “All efforts must be exerted to make stories fair, accurate and balanced. Getting the other side is a must, especially for the most sensitive and critical stories. The other side must run on their first take of the story and not any day later.”

    I believe that this article is not fair and balanced because it failed to interview those against the burial. There was no effort to introduce their side of the story and find out why their groups strongly opposed the burial. I believe that it is a journalist’s role to educate the public about both sides of an issue. In this article, the bias is leaning towards the approval of the Marcos burial, and illustrates the views of protesters as unimportant. This is similar to Duterte’s view in the article wherein he says, “Kung ayaw ng ibang Pilipino, fine. Mag-demonstrate kayo, go ahead. You can use the streets.” It’s as if the protesters side of the story is not relevant.

  6. TOLENTINO, DANIELLE EUNICE G. – ETHICS

    [ 3RD MEDIA MONITOR – “De Lima denies saying Davao City explosion was ploy for martial rule” ]

    News article link:  http://www.gmanetwork.com/news/story/580091/news/nation/de-lima-denies-saying-davao-city-explosion-was-ploy-for-martial-rule#sthash.3ULPgIdg.dpuf  

    The recent bomb attack at the night market in Davao has garnered the attention of media. A lot of news articles and reports have been published and aired, stating facts on the blast including death toll, number of injured, update on police findings, and linked suspects. In addition to those, there were also posts and photos circulating the web regarding Sen. Leila De Lima’s supposed statements on the Davao blast. It stated, “It could be a strategy of Duterte forces to provide reason to declare Martial Law. Davao is not the safest place after all.” Needless to say, it has gathered a lot of negative feedback and bashing.

    In the article attached, De Lima was able to respond to the issue and defend herself by denying that she said such statement. According to her office’s statement, “Obviously, this statement maliciously attributed to her is part of the disinformation campaign designed to discredit her.” It shows that the journalists behind the news article was able to “diligently seek subject/s (which in this case is De Lima) of news coverage to allow them to respond to criticism…” (As stated in the SPJ Code of Ethics). Before publishing the alleged statements, they were able to get a response of De Lima. Thus, verifying whether the statement was indeed hers as well.  Also, the article was able to “provide context” as it also included brief information on the Davao bomb attack and Pres. Duterte’s declaration of “state of lawless violence” right after the incident. Thus, increasing military and police presence. In addition to this, the article also provided a brief summary of the ongoing clash between Duterte and De Lima, mentioning the issue like  Duterte’s drug matrix that showed De Lima’s alleged link to illegal drug operations and also, sen. De Lima’s statement on the ongoing drug-related killings.

    Article: http://www.rappler.com/nation/142124-ferdinand-marcos-burial-libingan-bayani-september-bongbong

    According to the Code of Professional and Ethical Conduct of the 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.” I think the article exemplifies this particular passage.

    In the article, Rappler reported on Marcos’ family’s statement that Ferdinand Marcos has a set date for his burial in Libingan ng mga Bayani. They also interviewed the palace officials to verify this, in which they contradicted Marcos’ statement: the burial hasn’t been formally discussed. Afterwards, they reported on staunch opponents of the Marcos burial in Duterte’s cabinet to give a contrary perspective to the issue.

    Source: http://cnnphilippines.com/news/2016/08/07/marcos-libingan-ng-mga-bayani-burial.html

    President Duterte announced that the burial of the former Ferdinand Marcos will push through. He also said that the former president could also be buried at the date of the former president’s birthday. Duterte stated that those who are against his decision of Marcos’ burial could rally in the streets.

    CNN provided just a light narrative of the opposers planned protests. For me, they did not put an effort to introducing the side of the opposers. This is a violation of the Code of Professional and Ethical Conduct of the Philippine Press Institute’s provision stating that ““All efforts must be exerted to make stories fair, accurate and balanced. Getting the other side is a must, especially for the most sensitive and critical stories. The other side must run on their first take of the story and not any day later.”

    We could see in the CNN’s article that they are biased to the approval of former president’s burial. It does not consider the opposers’ side as important.

  9. Media Monitor (First Bonus Post)
    On the article: http://cnnphilippines.com/news/2016/08/07/marcos-libingan-ng-mga-bayani-burial.html

    The journalist reports on the decision of President Duterte to move former President Ferdinand Marcos’ remains to the Libingan ng mga Bayani. This decision was heavily opposed way before the president was elected as it was part of his campaign. The president’s side was covered and quoted by the reporter. In the second half of the article, however, the journalist’s failings are clear. The article states: “Marcos’ critics oppose a hero’s burial for him because of the alleged human rights abuses, extra-judicial killings and ill-gotten wealth he allegedly accumulated during his dictatorship.” Strange that the journalist thinks these facts are mere allegations when they have been proven in history.
    The article also fails to interview another source from the opposers and critics of the burial. If she tried to full journalism’s important role as watchdog of the State, she should have sourced the opinions of those who have been oppressed by Marcos and insulted by this ruling. Furthermore, the last paragraph is hasty and reinforces her bias even more.
    No attempt at raising discourse or citing historical context was made by the writer. It is a violation of the Code of Professional and Ethical Conduct of the PPI specifically the provision disallowing single-source stories and the provision stating that a journalist should “accord equal prominence to rejoiners, rebuttals and clarification from persons or agencied criticized in our stories”.

  10. Third Regular Media Monitor: Duterte declares state of lawlessness in PH

    President Rodrigo Duterte declared a nationwide state of lawless violence or lawlessness because of the deadly bombing in Davao City which killed 14 people and wounded 60 more. The declaration also happened in 2003 during Arroyo’s term but this was only limited to Davao City.

    The good thing about the articles linked below is that they all explained well what the state of lawless violence or lawlessness really means. Especially on the online media where people are talking about the possibilities of the president to declare martial law, this terms is needed to be explained very well because if not it could be misunderstood by its readers. According to the SPJ Code of Ethics 2014, journalists should provide access to source materials when it is relevant and appropriate. These articles have links of further readings and explanation for the readers to better understand it.

  13. Third Regular Media Monitor: Duterte declares State of Lawlessness

    The terror attack in Davao night market propelled President Duterte in declaring the state of lawlessness in the country. This gives a projected scenario of police and military power and presence in almost all corners of different regions at first, but this was given light by some news organizations.

    The fear of Martial Law is effervescent, even in our contemporary times. Philippine Daily Inquirer’s news article on Duterte’s declaration of of a state of lawlessness gave a clear distinction of what the President is trying to point out in his statements. Though the actual scenario could be given different interpretations and viewed at different angles, it is quite commendable that journalists in place did not take advantage of the situation to distort the truth. The hoax fear of Martial law was clarified, and the real purpose which is for the President to do by all means the measures he thinks is for the national security is pointed out.

    The news presented what is there to know instead of filtering what should be known. In this light, though the newspaper is branded by some as yellow-leaning, it did not let it distort what the public needs to know.

    it followed the provision in the Code of Professional and Ethical Conduct of the Philippine Press stating, ” All efforts must be exerted to make stories fair, accurate and balanced. Getting the other side is a must, especially for the most sensitive and critical stories.

    by taking the full side of the primary involved in the story, the right use of privilege as a journalist was manifested.

  14. Third Media Monitor [Second Bonus Post: Child rights groups oppose lowering age of criminal responsibility]

    link: http://interaksyon.com/article/130530/child-rights-groups-oppose-lowering-age-of-criminal-responsibility

    The article touches on the issue of lowering the Minimum Age of Criminal Responsibility from fifteen years old to nine years old. It focused mainly on what the several child rights groups had to say about the issue, who are very much leaning towards the opposition. The article, however, does not get any word from the senators who are lobbying for the amendment of the Juvenile Justice and Welfare Act, making it a very one-sided article.

    According to the SPJ Code of Ethics, journalists must “Diligently seek subjects of news coverage to allow them to respond to criticism or allegations of wrongdoing.” While I personally am against the lowering of the MACR, the article should have let the senators defend why they are pushing for the amendment.

    Having said that, the article does provide insight of child rights groups who seldom have any sort of coverage. It gets statements from the Philippine Action for Youth Offenders and the Child Rights Network, two coalitions who are actively lobbying against this house bill. This is in line with the SPJ Code of Ethics provision: “Boldly tell the story of the diversity and magnitude of the human experience. Seek sources whose voices we seldom hear.”
