The Bonus for the 8th media monitor is the evaluation of the behavior of a media practitioner (either as “good practice” or as a violation or an ethical issue ), illustrating the following provision of the Philippine Journalists Code of Ethics: ” I shall comport myself in public or while performing my duties as journalist in such manner as to maintain the dignity of my profession. When in doubt, decency should be my watchword.” (the time frame for the media content or media practitioner’s behavior is August 15, 2019 to November 21, 2019). The deadline is Nov. 21, 2019.
