The Aquino assassination: The challenge to media

Because I have been a journalist for so long, this lecture involves personal remembrance. Hopefully this will not get in the way of the main objective, which is to think about the role of the press, not only during the political period under discussion, but in general, as a critical issue affecting our national development. This is something that needs to be emphasized as the press and media are not usually considered in the study of politics and social concerns, including governance and civil society.
