  1. COMM 120 – Media Law
    GWEE, Estelle M.
    2014-05722

    Nov. 30, 5:00 PM, People Power Monument
    Quote/Message written on the placard: “Marcos hindi bayani!”
    The statement is defamatory but exempt from libel because it concerns public interest. It concerns a public official (Ferdinand Marcos Sr.) who was elected as president of the Philippines. Therefore, anyone has the right to give a comment or opinion regarding the said public official.

    Nov. 18, 5:00 PM, UP Diliman (AS Steps)
    Quote/Message written on the placard: “No to hero’s burial for Marcos!”
    The statement does not constitute prejudicial publicity because it just reflected the opinion of a citizen regarding the decision of the court. It does not even fall under publication of prejudicial metter, excessive publicity, sensationalism, and vigilantism. Also, the statement does not constitute contempt of court because it was not a misbehavior in the court room. Although, the placards and the protest were signs of disrespect to the court, the rallyists followed guidelines and orders that did not cause inconvenience to other citizens. Such placards did not cause any harm that resulted to a clear and present danger.

  2. I joined the rally on November 18, 2016, at 4 pm and marched from AS Steps to Katipunan. I saw the message “Marcos, Hitler, Dictador, Tuta” on one of the placards. The statement is defamatory but it is exempted from libel. First, Marcos is a public figure. According to the public figure doctrine, a person who is elected is considered a public figure. He was elected as the president of the Philippines. As a public figure, he is subjected to be scrutinized. Since he is a public figure and this concerns the public interest, under the fair comment concept, anyone can comment and express their opinion about him. Therefore this statement is exempted from libel.

    On the same date and location, I saw a placards that states, “No to Hero’s Burial for Marcos”. It does not fall under the prejudicial publicity. It is not a publication of the prejudicial matters, it is not sensationalized, it does not fall under the vigilantism and excessive publicity. This is does not constitute contempt because the case in not a pending case. The decision of the court, therefore, is subjected to be scrutinized.

  3. A placard that says, “Pang Stem Cell ni Imee, 13th Month Pay Ko (Tanders na kaya siya nung Martial Law, bata ka diyan) is defamatory but it is exempt from libel because it concerns public interest. Imee Marcos was the daughter of then-president Ferdinand Marcos (Child of a public official) and now, she is a public official herself, being the Governor of Ilocos Norte.
    Placards that contain information regarding the economy during the Marcos administration (growth rate, debt rate, as well as the words “Paano ‘to naging golden age?” and “Marcos is not a hero” does not constitute prejudicial publicity because they were opinions from the placard-bearers as well as legitimate information from credible sources. It also does not fall under contempt of court because there was no misbehavior that happened in the courtroom. Only the second sentence, “Marcos is not a hero” can be directly related to the decision of the SC but even in the current situation, it was not an opinion that did not cause harm during the event thus, there was no clear and present danger observed.
