The Philippine Press after Marcos: Restored Freedoms and New Problems.
Guimary, Donald L.
With the overthrow of Ferdinand Marcos from his 20-year rule of the Philippines, the news media regained its freedom and its voice, and now faces a new set of problems: low circulation, questionable ethical standards of reporters and their lack of experience, and ominous indications from the Corazon Aquino government that the administration might take actions against the media. If Filipino journalists do not learn from history, and the perception of the press as sensationalistic and rumor based does not change, President Aquino may adopt legislation forcing the news media to be more responsive to the needs of a developing nation. (Twenty-eight notes are included.) (SR)
