Last Jan. 16, the Center for Media Freedom and Responsibility (CMFR) invited journalists and representatives of civil society organizations in a roundtable discussion to review CMFR’s conclusions and recommendations in its media monitoring project in the 2007 elections.

At the roundtable discussion, CMFR executive director Melinda Quintos also presented the group’s Monitor of the News Media Coverage of the 2010 Campaign and Elections. Click here to know more about the project.

Below are PDF copies of De Jesus’s two presentations at the event.

CMFR Monitor of the News Media Coverage of 2013 Elections

Given the special nature of the 2013 campaign and elections, the media’s role as credible and critical sources of information and analysis during the election season bears watching. The Center for Media Freedom and Responsibility (CMFR) is monitoring the news media coverage of the 2013 campaign and elections in the context of both the special circumstances in which they were taking place, and the opportunity for improved and meaningful reporting and analysis the exercise offered to the Philippine media. 

CMFR has been monitoring media coverage of Philippine elections since 1992, and in every instance has made recommendations towards the improvement of media coverage. These efforts have not been unrewarded. Changes in media coverage incorporating some of the recommendations of the CMFR monitor in 2004 were evident, for example, in the media coverage of the 2007 elections.
