PJR Reports turns into a special annual

Starting this year, PJR Reports will be released as a special annual report on the state of the press.

Formerly released as a bimonthly, the new PJR Reports will continue to serve as a forum about the press and the issues affecting journalism,  engaging not only members of the press but also the larger community of stakeholders, government and business, the academe, and civil society. Designed as a special yearend volume, PJR Reports will continue to promote responsible journalism by conducting media monitoring and encouraging self-regulation through peer review, producing reports and analyses of media practices and conduct as well as providing news about the press itself.

The once-a-year publication will be based on the findings of the media monitor, content and case analyses which CMFR will continue to upload on the CMFR website (www.cmfr-phil.org). It will hold the same features of the digital pages, but will also serve as an annual review of the most significant political and social developments of the past year through the special prism of media coverage.

It will be made available by the first of December each year.

The new PJR Reports edition will continue as an invaluable tool in tracking media coverage. While the PJR Reports has been modeled after the Columbia Journalism Review, it remains the only one of its kind in Asia. The new PJR Reports will continue to help the press also in its task of self-evaluation.

The goal of PJR Reports has always been to build a free and responsible press, an institution without which democracy cannot flourish in the Philippines.
