  1. 11th Media Monitor: Regular Post

    President Rodrigo Duterte forewarned of suspension of writ of habeas corpus if lawlessness in the country escalates, November 13. According to the article published by Inquirer, while Duterte is considering suspending of writ of habeas corpus, he would not declare martial law. However, the idea was immediately downplayed into “just an idea”. To further inform the public on this issue, Inquirer published an article that explains what the writ of habeas corpus is, why it is important, and when it was suspended. Their coverage offers an extensive blow-by-blow of the events as well as a contextual and historical background.

    This practice exemplifies provisions in the SPJ Code of Ethics such as “provide context” and “gather, update and correct information throughout the life of a news story”. As more decisions and statements are announced, Inquirer was able to track the developments in their news. Additionally, they also dug up historical analysis of the suspension of writ of habeas corpus, answering why people should care about it.

    Another provision followed by the series of articles is “support the open and civil exchange of views”. Those who weighed in on this proposition by Duterte (namely, Senators Richard Gordon and Sonny Angara and PNP Chief Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa) were also given coverage.

    “Durterte admits ogling at Robredo’s legs during cabinet meeting”

    The article published by inquirer is about Duterte admitting that he ogled at Robredo’s legs during the cabinet meeting. Duterte openly spoke about this during an event marking the Yolanda typhoon tragedy’s third year.

    The article is problematic because we did not really get a side on Leni or the women’s group for a fair and balanced report. I think that it is important to get Leni’s perspective whether she was offended or not so we could have a better insight that what Duterte did was discriminatory.

    I also feel that the article could have expounded more on the repercussions of a president doing such actions.

    (3rd Regular Post)- 11th media monitor
    3rd regular: “Senate Resolution vs Marcos burial fails approval”
    “Senate Resolution vs Marcos burial fails approval” as reported by Maila Ager last November 14,2016 at the Inquirer.net elaborated on a resolution to express the senate members decisions for or against the burial of the late Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani. The majority of the senators had to present themselves at the hearing. Accordingly 11 of the senators were needed to approve the Senate Resolution number 86. Only 8 voted to adapt the resolution, 6 abstained, and 6 gave the negative votes which resulted the motion being lost. Thus, will allow the former President to be buried at the Libingan ng mga Bayani.
    The news article violated some provision from SPJ code of ethics: (1) Diligently seek subjects of news coverage to allow them to respond to criticism or allegations of wrongdoing. The r Likewise, the news article has also violated the following provision from the Code of Professional and ethical conduct of the Philippine Press Institute in writing the story which says that (1) “all efforts must be exerted to make stories fair, accurate, and balanced”. The reporter did not include statements from the daughter of Marcos but only cited the views of Angara for his reason to abstain from votes. Getting the other side is a must so the reporter should have included the side of Imee Marcos to make a fair judgement and to allow her to respond to such criticisms.

  4. 11th media monitor – regular post

    In the article entitled, “DOJ chief: Ombudsman wasting time on PNP chief Bato’s Las Vegas trip” from GMA News, Sec. Vitaliano Aguirre’s take on the issue of PNP Chief Dela Rosa’s sponsored trip was published with mostly responsible and comprehensive content for the public.

    The statement was directly lifted from the station’s live broadcast platform where Sec. Aguirre was interviewed live, with Sec. Aguirre stating, “Instead of spending time sa mga ganyang mga cases, maraming cases diyan tulad ng PDAF at DAP’. Thus, they followed the SPJ Code of Ethics’ provision of taking responsibility for the accuracy of work to be released.
    It is also notable that the article provided context for the news itself. Beginning from a background on what specific actions the Ombudsman has taken concerning PNP Chief Dela Rosa’s free trip to Las Vegas given by Sen. Manny Pacquiao, the article abided by the SPJ Code of Ethics’ guideline of, as aforementioned, of giving the public of the prior information needed to understand the news. It also presented the action done by the other party concerned which is another government body.

    The article was also able to identify the cases where PNP Chief Dela Rosa would be probed. The article did not hastily branded the PNP chief of the accusations namely, possible violation of Presidential Decree 46, which bars public officials and employees from receiving gifts on any occasion and of Republic Act 6713 or the Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards for Public Officials and Employees. The article followed the provision of the Philippine Journalist’s Code of Ethics on presuming the innocence of persons accused of crime until proven

    The only violation present was the insufficient information on who are the people whom Sec. Aguirre was pertaining to in hi statement. While it was said as a tag that, “Former President Benigno Aquino III and former Budget Secretary Florencio Abad are facing complaints over the DAP system.”, it should have identified more politicians involved in the DAP and PDAF system. From here, only former President Aquino and Former Budget Secretary Butch Abad were pointed at, though it is true that both are facing charges. This improperly emphasized the two former government officials and further simplified the number of people involved in the case.

  5. Article: “Admission of affair boosts case vs Leila”
    online link of newspaper: http://www.pressreader.com/philippines/the-philippine-star/20161116/textview

    The article was mostly centered on Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II’s thoughts on Sen. Leila de Lima’s admission of her affair with her former driver Ronnie Dayan (who is being hunted down today.) The article alone failed to seek the subject of issue – Sen. de Lima. Only included in the article are the statements she made on a public affairs program in GMA News TV. Her thoughts should’ve been noted regarding the public’s reaction at least. But then reading more from the newspaper, there is actually a relatively short article on de Lima’s statement after Aguirre warned here that here admission could strengthen the cases filed against her. Despite have that article, I think a brief one should have at least been included. Also, since this is a developing story and a lot of things have happened ever since the issue came into play, I think it would be better if the journalist provided a brief context perhaps at the end or beginning of the article.

    Provisions from the SPJ code of ethics that i thought weren’t met completely are: (1) Provide context. Take special care not to misrepresent or oversimplify in promoting, previewing, or summarizing a story. (2) Diligently seek subjects of news coverage to allow them to respond to criticism or allegations of wrong doing.

    http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/844657/to-occultists-supermoon-time-means-extra-power

    The article is about what the supermoon is for occultists. It says in the KBP Broadcast Code, Article 13. Superstition and the Occult, “Programs featuring superstitious and pseudo-scientific beliefs and practices, such as supernatural powers, foretelling of the future, astrology, phrenology, palm-reading, numerology, mind-reading, hypnotism, faith healing or similar subjects shall be careful not to induce belief in them. Care shall be taken to prevent the exploitation of people who may be easily swayed by such superstitious and pseudo-scientific beliefs and practices.” The article didn’t take extra care to make sure that the reader will not believe in superstition and the occult after reading the article. There were no scientists interviewed to weigh in a scientific and objective point of view.
