NOW: Eight seasoned journalists lead the 2021 Jaime V. Ongpin Journalism Seminar. | via @newsdwight
@newsdwight The selection committee for this year's JVO Seminar is composed of Melinda De Jesus, Tina Monson-Palma, Ed Lingao, Vergel Santos, and Luis Teodoro. | via @newsdwight
@newsdwight CMFR Executive Director Melinda Quintos De Jesus: We have found that the internet which is now an integral part of our lives is really only as good as the values held by the people who use its power. | via @newsdwight
@newsdwight De Jesus: [The idea that the internet's] immense power has been taken over by governments and political groups unleashing venomous political propaganda is the tragedy of our times. | via @newsdwight
@newsdwight De Jesus: There are more and more numbers of netizens who can't discuss their differences, except in confrontational, even contemptuous speech, whose political views are so enclosed by an algorithm they can no longer connect with others as Filipinos and human beings.
@newsdwight Rappler’s @lianbuan: [Audiences are] beginning to increasingly care about news as a way of checking good governance. I'd like to see if it goes beyond Twitter. The challenge for all journalists is to see beyond their echo chamber. | via @newsdwight
@newsdwight @lianbuan Philstar's @francoIuna: The tendency to control the flow of information that journalists get is an implicit acknowledgment from government officials of the effect that people-centered journalism has in a democracy. | via @newsdwight
@newsdwight @lianbuan @francoIuna .@james_relativo of says Duterte has yet to provide a copy of his SALN, even with the existence of FOI. "It's our job to let the public know that there is a kind of barrier being set by gov't for the public to have reliable information." | via @newsdwight
@newsdwight @lianbuan @francoIuna @james_relativo ABS-CBN News' @EdsonCGuido: When we talk about COVID-19 cases, most of the time, the reporting that is done is the total. When the media was asking for more questions, sometimes there would be no response at all. This is where data journalism comes in. | via @newsdwight
@newsdwight @lianbuan @francoIuna @james_relativo @EdsonCGuido Rappler's @lianbuan: Dapat shattered na iyong presumption of regularity. Iyong automatic mode ng journalists is be cynical of what officials are telling you, and it doesn't hurt to ask 10 follow-ups, even at the risk of you being kicked out of a Viber group. | via @newsdwight
@newsdwight @lianbuan @francoIuna @james_relativo @EdsonCGuido ABS-CBN's @EdsonCGuido: With the advent of fake news, the storytelling now should be more nuanced, providing context, and not just a he-said-she-said type of journalism. | via @newsdwight
@newsdwight @lianbuan @francoIuna @james_relativo @EdsonCGuido Rappler's @lianbuan: Ang pangarap ko talaga is for investigative reports of a news org to be taken apart and condensed and followed up by another news org, kasi pangarap ko talaga ang cross-media collaboration. It doesn't have to be as if mag-i-scoop-an tayo. | via @newsdwight
@newsdwight @lianbuan @francoIuna @james_relativo @EdsonCGuido Buan: The public now is more empowered to claim their stake in journalism. Mas empowered sila na "We are entitled to your transparency, accountability," and I think that has made a lot of journalists uncomfortable, kasi parang "Wow, bakit kami na ang iniimbestigahan?"
@newsdwight @lianbuan @francoIuna @james_relativo @EdsonCGuido Asked about the practice of using "shady headlines," Philstar's Franco Luna says he does not find anything unprofessional about it "as long as it's factual and corroborated by sources." | via @newsdwight
@newsdwight @lianbuan @francoIuna @james_relativo @EdsonCGuido James Relativo of Putting shady headlines does its job. Halimbawa, naglabas [ang official] ng statement na alam mong misinformation. Sinabi niya, "1 plus 1 equals 11," pwede mong sabihin, "actually, 2 lang 'yan," pwede mong sabihin sa headline 'yan.
@newsdwight @lianbuan @francoIuna @james_relativo @EdsonCGuido ABS-CBN's @IanEsguerra: It’s very clear that since 2016, the biggest threat to press freedom is Rodrigo Duterte. Over the past few years, since he assumed office, this threat has morphed into something more serious, the reality of self-censorship, of second-guessing ourselves.
@newsdwight @lianbuan @francoIuna @james_relativo @EdsonCGuido @IanEsguerra Esguerra: Even if a story has been well-vetted, even if sources have been properly verified, there’s always this tendency on a good number of journalists to censor themselves. In certain newsrooms, gone are the days when we used to call a spade a spade. | via @newsdwight
@newsdwight @lianbuan @francoIuna @james_relativo @EdsonCGuido @IanEsguerra Esguerra: Newsroom managers or owners go to the extent of censoring their own newsrooms just so they won’t get into trouble with Malacañang, Bong Go, Alan Peter Cayetano. | via @newsdwight
@newsdwight @lianbuan @francoIuna @james_relativo @EdsonCGuido @IanEsguerra Rappler's @piaranada: Duterte’s presidency highlighted a certain misunderstanding of media among Filipinos. When we see people who are easily swayed by arguments of the gov’t, that when media writes negative news, [they think] we are working towards the destruction of gov’t.

@newsdwight @lianbuan @francoIuna @james_relativo @EdsonCGuido @IanEsguerra @piaranada ABS-CBN's @mikenavallo: There’s now an iron wall that we need to penetrate. When social media users see posts from Rappler or ABS-CBN, they would automatically dismiss it as false or biased. How did we get here? | via @newsdwight
@newsdwight @lianbuan @francoIuna @james_relativo @EdsonCGuido @IanEsguerra @piaranada @mikenavallo Navallo: Regardless of the content in which we present our stories, if these stories do not come across to our intended audience, they will fall on deaf ears. | via @newsdwight
@newsdwight @lianbuan @francoIuna @james_relativo @EdsonCGuido @IanEsguerra @piaranada @mikenavallo .@camillediola of Philstar/Interaksyon: No matter how factual or accurate our stories are, if they do not really reach segments of our audience, that’s one of my fears, and that’s a very real threat that we feel more and more as elections approach. | via @newsdwight

NOW: In this episode of By The Numbers, Rappler talks to Vic Dimagiba, the president of Laban Konsyumer. Dimagiba was an undersecretary at the Department of Trade and Industry.

What's behind the increase in oil price?

Dimagiba says this can be attributed to two things: 1) more citizens are getting vaccinated, people can now go out, driving the economy again; 2) this is the time for oil producing countries to recover revenues.

Dimagiba suggests that the president invoke his powers to temporarily suspend excise taxes to help minimum wage consumers.
