UPDATE on the 4th Bonus Law on Mass Media

  • UPDATE on the Fourth Bonus, Law on Mass Media:

UPDATED today Sept. 10: For Law on Mass Media students: FOR THE FOURTH BONUS: Since you are taking up Law on Mass Media in this section and have been provided with sufficient discussion on specific rights and duties as laid down in the Constitution and statutory provisions, you need to illustrate through this exercise that you know how to apply what you learned. Generalities such as “rights under the law” or “human rights violations” are too vague for a student taking up Law on Mass Media in this section. Failure to specify the constitutional and statutory provisions as basis of your answer (in this case, the demand letter) will result in a score of zero. Second, the letter-request or demand letter should state that it is being made in order that the party requesting would not be compelled to resort to administrative, civil, and criminal remedies etc. (If your request is denied, you would need to send a more strongly worded demand letter and to prepare your appeals … if you have no lawyer or no access to legal assistance, you would need to consult textbooks on Remedies and Legal Forms to see the template.). Finally, please check your grammar and syntax not for anything else, pero para hindi pagtawanan sa sinulat — maaari ring isulat sa Filipino o Pilipino kung mas kumportable kayo rito.

    Good day!

    I am Xaika Nadine A. Saldivar, a journalist under the online publication, Sa Atong Panahon. Our publication is focused on sharing news in all local languages in the country.

    We focus on issues that are not much talked about or explored through mainstream media. Our mandate is to seek the truth in all facets of our society. We have themes and segments that we feature throughout a whole month aside from the news that we publish every day.

    For our segment next month, we will be focusing on the youth and the rising growth of teenage pregnancy and children under foster care. Thus we would like to ask for your data on the following: (1) the number of teenage pregnancies with data on their social class and age per region in the Philippines in the last five years, (2) the percentage of recorded abortions by teenagers per region in the last five years, and (3) the number of foster homes in the country with the average number of children found in these homes.

    According to the law, we have the right to know these public records as there is no constitutional law hindering us so, and it is a matter of public concern. This is important as the youth are the future of our society. It is then vital to know about this issue and share it to the wider public in order for them to know the graveness or lack thereof of this impending problem in the country. According to Article III, Section 7: “The right of the people to information on matters of public concern shall be recognized. Access to official records, and to documents and papers pertaining to official acts, transactions, or decisions, as well as to government research data used as basis for policy development, shall be afforded the citizen, subject to such limitations as may be provided by law.” If not provided for, we have every right to file a case against the unconstitutionality of your department.

    We hope this letter will suffice that you grant us the public records stated above so that we can avoid resorting to other administrative or civil remedies. If possible, we would like to have these data in twelve days time or by September 24, 2018. You may contact me through email: atongpanahon@gmail.com or through text message: 09171234567. Thank you very much and have a good day!
