In addition to the ten choices of bonus titles/ bonus topics already provided, the following are additional bonus topics/ bonus titles:
BONUS TITLE/BONUS TOPIC: Recent Surge in the Prices of Food Items. In particular, please evaluate whether the news report/ feature/ is well-backgrounded and the phenomenon is fully explained in ordinary language; state the pertinent provisions.
BONUS TITLE/BONUS TOPIC: Senate Siege. The Malacañang effort to warrantlessly seize Senator Trillanes. In particular, please evaluate whether the news report/ feature is balanced and presents the side of all parties affected by the conflict
[or, at the very least, the reporter or the media organization made an effort to get the side of the parties affected (for example: “The ____ ________ (name of publication) contacted the office of DOJ Secretary Guevarra to get his comment but as of press time (as of posting time), he did not return the call etc.” would suffice).
Happy viewing/ reading/ professionalizing!
