The post can either be an embedded, or a pasted link leading to the student’s own site. Only a review of events that are current (a review of media coverage starting Nov. 2, 2019 up to Nov. 14, 2019) will be allowed.
Late submissions are considered a forfeit for the week and would not be credited.
Instructions have been given in class. (As stated before: Students may use pseudonyms or pen names, and conceal their faces, and may also use their own platforms and simply paste the links in the comments section. (If pseudonymous, pls provide the department assistant with your pen name).
Pls use the comments section of this post. As stated, the media monitor commentary may either by typed as text in the comments section or as a link leading to the post in the platform of the classmember/ post author. Pls type in the first line whether the post is a regular media monitor (7th Regular Media Monitor, The News Media 1) or a bonus post (type the Bonus Title) to aid the checker in locating and categorizing each box. Tnx). The title of the Bonus topic for this window is the SPJ provision, “Giving Voice to the Voiceless”
Baseless rants will not merit any points – the commentary should use, cite, and quote the pertinent provisions of the 2014 SPJ Code of Ethics as taken up in class this week. For the succeeding weeks, members of the class should be able to cite also the Philippine Journalists Code of Ethics (PPI Code of Ethics and PPI Expanded Code of Ethics), the KBP Broadcast Code, etc.) Failure to provide the pertinent provision will result in a score of zero. The SPJ provisions have been provided in the handouts online. The first half of the SPJ code was also discussed in powerpoint in class. BONUS: Giving Voice to the Voiceless. For double the points, a class member may evaluate any news media content that illustrates the following SPJ code of ethics provisions: “-Be vigilant and courageous about holding those with power accountable. Give voice to the voiceless.”
“-Recognize a special obligation to serve as watchdogs over public affairs and government. Seek to ensure that the public’s business is conducted in the open, and that public records are open to all.”
“-Boldly tell the story of the diversity and magnitude of the human experience. Seek sources whose voices we seldom hear.
