  1. 7th Media Monitor (Bonus: Women’s Month)

    RAPPLER: Meet the women drivers of MRT3

    SPJ Code of Ethics:
    “Boldly tell the story of the diversity and magnitude of the human experience. Seek sources whose voices we seldom hear.”

    This article is a good practice as it conveyed the stories of empowered women who work in a male-dominated industry. It sought to uncover their experiences as women MRT3 drivers, who continuously seek to overcome the prejudice against their gender’s capabilities. This article succeeded on resounding the voices we seldom hear,

    SPJ Code of Ethics:

    Article: 8 incredible things women do for the world

    https://www.rappler.com/move-ph/197621-8-things-women-world

    The article sheds light on eight – both conventional and unconventional, but equally important – roles women play in our modern society, namely; protect us, nourish us, uphold our rights, speak truth to power, expand our knowledge, teach us to love, fight for us and colour our world. For every role provided, the article links the reader to separate news stories that specifically highlight individual stories of inspiring women in our society.

    The article is a good practice of the mentioned provision because it intends to provide an avenue where women’s contribution to society can be known. It is in celebration of the women’s month and delivered different news stories of various inspiring women who are often unheard of in our nation today.

    Article: Batangas women with disability play roles in Women’s Month events
    https://news.mb.com.ph/2018/03/10/batangas-women-with-disability-play-roles-in-womens-month-events/

    This is a good practice of the provision mentioned because aside from the the subjects being women, they are also handicapped or persons with disability. They are really a rich source of diversity and unique human experience. These women are to provide free services for the month of March which is the women’s month.

    Article: Zamboanga City joins women’s month celebration

    Link: http://www.sunstar.com.ph/zamboanga/local-news/2018/03/07/zamboanga-city-joins-womens-month-celebration-592418

    This article featured the International Women’s Month celebration held in Zamboanga City in Mindanao. It enumerated the festivities, and the political and social calls of the participants – most of which were women. This article showed good practice of the SPJ code of ethics provision above for two main reasons. On surface level, it told the story of women and how they have battled oppression over the decades. Furthermore, it highlighted the leaps and bounds they have made through active efforts. This was in stark contrast to the male dominance that used to be commonplace in society. Finally, this article is even more commendable since it features women from Mindanao, whose voices are even more seldom heard as compared to those from the capitol region. By doing this, it hit two birds with one stone and definitely met its goal.

    Uber Celebrates #DrivenWomen This Women’s Month
    https://preen.inquirer.net/69702/uber-celebrates-drivenwomen-womens-month

    The article is a good practice of the provision because it gives insight to female Uber drivers, and their stories. The ride-sharing industry is seen as a mostly male-dominated job. In line with March’s Women’s Month, the article shines the spotlight on four different female Uber drivers. Each of the women have different backgrounds, but the main point of the article to prove that women can be drivers, and reach for something even greater in life.

  6. 2018 7th Media Monitor (BONUS: Astrology)

    KBP Code of Ethics

    “Article 13. SUPERSTITION AND THE OCCULT

    Sec. 1. 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.”

    Magandang Buhay: What are the lucky charms for the year of the dog?

    This episode of Magandang Buhay featured an episode about lucky charms for this year. This episode is a bad example of KBP Code of Ethics – Article 13. It is a good exchange of ideas from the feng shui experts but it eventually became an advertising venue for the experts to sell their products. The hosts and the experts became very pushy about the topic, highly encouraging people to buy their lucky charms to attract luck which is something that shouldn’t be allowed to be aired.

  7. 2018 7th Media Monitor (BONUS: Rappler)
    A violation of :
    SPJ Code of Ethics
    ACT INDEPENDENTLY
    – Avoid conflicts of interest, real or perceived. Disclose unavoidable conflicts

    https://www.rappler.com/nation/196474-duterte-orders-psg-stop-rappler-reporter-malacanang

    In Rappler’s struggle against Malacanang, it continues to update its readers, which is a clear display of a conflict of interest. This article talks about one of Rappler’s reporters, Pia Ranada, being banned for media coverage in Malacanang. While it is Rappler’s interest to update its readers about the issue, a news entity should not be reporting about itself.

  8. 2018 7th Media Monitor
    BONUS: Astrology

    KBP Article 13 Sec. 1

    “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 pseudoscientific
    beliefs and practices.”

    This episode of Magandang Buhay, they invited a Feng Shui expert to foretell the future of certain artists in the year 2018. This is a bad example of the provision stated above because everything was one-sided. They only got the opinion of the Feng Shui expert, making every statement believable which can be problematic because it can exploit people into believing such superstitious beliefs. It would have been better if they had another professional and if their conversation also highlighted that these are their own beliefs.

    SPJ Code of Ethics:
    “Boldly tell the story of the diversity and magnitude of the human experience. Seek sources whose voices we seldom hear.”

    National Youth Commission celebrates women’s month with march, forum
    Article: https://www.rappler.com/move-ph/197536-national-youth-commission-women-month

    With the Philippines, and the world celebrating the National Women’s Month, news regarding it, its events and activities arise. This article shows great practice as it combines two facets of voices deemed to crucial in the society; the youth and the women. An article which promotes and highlights the importance of both, we can day that human experience is magnified clearly and diversity is clearly shown. These voices also have continuously been left out and not heard. Thus, given this article the importance of young women in the society is shown. Furthermore, it serves as a great venue for social change in the human experience.

  10. 2018 7th Media Monitor (Regular)

    SPJ: “Show compassion for those who may be affected by news coverage. Use heightened sensitivity when dealing with juveniles, victims of sex crimes, and sources or subjects who are inexperienced or unable to give consent. Consider cultural differences in approach and treatment.”

    2 held for selling marijuana in Lucena (http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/975135/2-held-for-selling-marijuana-in-lucena)

    The article is a good practice of the said SPJ Provision because it did not disclose the name of the 15-year-old suspect selling marijuana whilst mentioning the name of the minor’s 21-year-old accomplice.

  11. 2018 7th Media Monitor (BONUS Title: Women’s Month)

    SPJ Code of Ethics: “Boldly tell the story of the diversity and magnitude of the human experience. Seek sources whose voices we seldom hear.”

    Link: https://preen.inquirer.net/69702/uber-celebrates-drivenwomen-womens-month

    The article entitled, “What Is International Women’s Day Anyway?” by Inquirer shows a good practice of the provision mentioned above. It talks about why we are celebrating the International Women’s Day and how it came to be. Furthermore, it tells the story of the plight of women — the then marginalized and excluded — during the 1900’s and why it pushed them to do and ask more in life. More importantly, it tackles the importance of the IWD celebration and why everyone not only women, should celebrate it.

  12. 7th Regular Media Monitor

    SPJ Code of Ethics

    Gather, update and correct information throughout the life of a news story.

    http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/975180/bongbong-marcos-leni-robredo-election-protest-ballot-recount-polls-defer-presidential-electoral-tribunal-pet

    The news article reflects a good practice of the provision stated above. The news started two years ago with Bongbong Marcos filing a protest which requested for a ballot recount. Last year, VP Leni Robredo filed a counter-protest.

    The news article provided a context about the issue then it gathered info from before and then updated the news story. Since the news are interconnected with each other, it is important to update and correct the information for the readers to have a knowledge about it.

  13. 2018 7th Media Monitor
    Bonus: Dengvaxia (Dengue cases)

    SPJ Code:
    Identify sources clearly. The public is entitled to as much information as possible to judge the reliability and motivations of sources.

    PPI Expanded:
    Writing the story
    #4. Anonymous sources shall be discouraged, especially if they are coming from the public sector or public accountable agencies.

    Article:
    http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/975156/doh-dengue-cases-decline-in-first-two-months-of-2018-doh-duque-dengue-decline-health-news/amp

    This is a good example of these provisions especially at this time, people are being threatened by the Dengvaxia issue and investigations are being conducted. Having been declared by the DOH secretary this good news and laying down enough data, this article has provided a very relevant information, thus shifting the issue on Dengvaxia to a better one. Also, Duque being an accountable source, this article didn’t violated the single source provision in the PPI expanded code.

  14. 2018 7th Media Monitor (BONUS Title: DRUG WAR)

    [SPJ Code of Ethics]
    “Diligently seek subjects of news coverage to allow them to respond to criticism or allegations of wrongdoing.”
    ” Support the open and civil exchange of views, even views they find repugnant.”

    Clearing of drug lords upsets solons
    http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/975059/clearing-of-drug-lords-upsets-solons

    This is an example of good media practice. In here, we can find conflicting views from Department of Justice to Leni Robredo, Richard Gordon, and other parties. It was labeled and presented holistically. It has several sections on which the discourse on the controversial decision of DOJ was scrutinized or supported. The article made an effort to present the views of the concerned actors.

  15. 2018 7th Media Monitor (Regular)

    SPJ Code of Ethics
    Provide context. Take special care not to misrepresent or oversimplify in promoting, previewing, or summarizing a story.

    DOJ clears suspected drug lord
    [link] http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/974760/doj-clears-suspected-drug-lord

    The article introduced that cases of the suspected drug lords have been dismissed since Dec. 20, 2017 and that the dismissal was only revealed to the media almost three months after. This uncovered the full context of the suspects’ clearance and that it was not Agguire’s fault solely. Prosecutor General Jorge Catalan Jr. played the bigger role in exonerating the suspects. I believe that this was a good practice of the said SPJ Code of Ethics above.

  16. 2018 7th Media Monitor (Regular)

    SPJ Code of Ethics
    Take responsibility for the accuracy of their work. Verify information before releasing it. Use original sources whenever possible.

    Dengue cases down–DOH
    http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/905992/dengue-cases-down-doh

    The article is a good practice of this provision because they double-checked the data given by Health Secretary Paulyn Ubial with the information provided in the DOH official website.
