Aquino stokes adversarial role of media

By

President Aquino started the new year by picking a fight with the independent news media. Firing broadsides at his critics in the press, he pledged that as his New Year’s resolution, he would “just ignore” them.

‘Zombie news’—fake reports, repeated

A few weeks ago, a friend of mine in Camiguin posted an item on his Facebook profile (via a third party) about a so-called news item that purportedly appeared in the Daily Mail: “Food flown to Philippines from UK ends up in shops hundreds of miles…”

The Good Samaritan parable as news story

By

Some readers have asked about the “writing experiment” I attempted last month at the Loyola School of Theology, when I sought to discuss the church-media dynamic by, among other things, rewriting a famous Gospel parable.

Back to Ninoy, forward to PCP 3

By

I promised reader Lyndon Rutor I would link to columns I’ve written before that argue an important historical truth: that Jose Rizal and Ninoy Aquino followed the same path to heroic martyrdom.

Wrong ant, wrong name

I would like to inform you that the front-page picture titled “Kiss of the red fire ant” (Inquirer, 6/26/13) contained erroneous information. The scientific name of the Red (Imported) Fire Ant is Solenopsis invicta and not S. geminata. Both are non-native species and were introduced into the Philippines (specifically S. geminata). Thus far, there are only unconfirmed reports of Red Fire Ants as being present in the country. As far as we know, the specimens identified as S. invicta are actually S. geminata, which are less aggressive than S. invicta.

By

“A good newspaper is never nearly good enough. But a lousy newspaper is a joy forever,” an old wisecrack goes. It resonated in the Philippine Press Institute (PPI) conference: “Watching the Watchdog: Re-examining Ourselves.”

Disappearing acts

This year’s edition of the World Newspaper Congress, held in Bangkok the last several days, ended with two reminders (their pairing perhaps unintended) on the perils and promises facing journalism.

When a watchdog turns lazy

By

Jeers to the Center for Media Freedom and Responsibility (CMFR) for flagrantly misrepresenting a Philippine Daily Inquirer editorial, and substituting lazy memory for careful research.

Caribbean ‘piggy banks’

By

“Follow the smell of money.” Investigative reporter Amitabha Chowdhury worked by that rule in his Ananda Bazar Patrika exposés of murky contracts in India. Chowdhury won the 1961 Magsaysay Award for Journalism.

Aquino parries criticism, turns the tables on press

By

‘Hour Before Dawn’

By

Marites Danguilan Vitug is Philippine journalism’s most prolific book writer today. Her oeuvres aren’t easy to write and aren’t easy on the heart, mind and conscience. She excavates, names and damns, not for her personal delight, but in order to bring to the surface long hidden ills of society and in the government, for these [...]
