A series of articles that CJJ hopes will set off a conversation among practitioners and students of journalism as well as media consumers on the crisis that afflicts print media, specifically newspapers, more particularly, community newspapers.

Each article doesn’t try to tell the problem all at once, much less offer sure-fire solutions. Yet it tries to propel efforts of the industry’s leaders, many of whom have been working quietly to cope with changes in technology, which in turn revised habits of media consumers and reshaped the market.

Shifting to purely digital platform may be a “coerced” response that a newspaper outlet may be reluctant to make. Still it is an option, along with meeting the challenge to reinvent, for print to survive and even grow.

Here are the articles: Continue Reading

What kind of content works? A panel of UP graduates kicks around ideas for print media

It has been some time since observers within the industry and academia noticed that journalism is facing a crisis.

Solutions have been proposed. But will change in content, particularly in print media, work?

In September 2018, as the Cebu Press Freedom Week celebration was coming to a close, editor-turned university lecturer Jason Baguia sat down with a group of young University of the Philippines graduates from different parts of the country to discuss the matter. Continue Reading

In nine countries covered by a study, print media show how to beat the crisis

High internet penetration, which makes it easy for the public to get their news from the web, won’t necessarily cause newspaper circulation to decline.

A common strategy: redesign story-telling based on preferences of readers

This is at least true in nine countries — Australia, Canada, Czech Republic, Finland, Ireland, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore and South Africa — which became the focus of a data-mining and cluster analysis study by a group of college students.

Newspapers here may need to “redesign story telling style based on the preference of the readers” though, said Tessa Frances Aguilar, Christine Dianne, Balansag, Marichu Canencia and Milva Villocero in their paper.

That and continue to raise its online advertising revenues. Continue Reading

Rodrigo R. Duterte’s presidency has altered and controlled the public discourse so radically in its favor in ways rude and bold. Its tragic result: it has restricted and narrowed the celebrated freedom of the Philippine press and the people’s cherished right to know.

In his first 22 months in power, Mr. Duterte has earned the dubious honor of logging 85 various cases of attacks and threats on these dual values that the Constitution upholds as inalienable rights of the citizens. The number far exceeds those recorded under four presidents before him.  Continue Reading

◘ Related Media’s Public column: “’Unpatriotic journalists’: Tiglao blasts ‘false writers’ abroad” (Nov. 24, 2017)

TWO public officials complained about “fake news” this week:

◘ Vice President Leni Robredo on April 23 called out as “fake news” the item in Rigoberto Tiglao’s column in  “Manila Times” that she talked with European Parliament officials during her recent trip to Germany and persuaded them to pass a resolution condemning extrajudicial killings (EJKs) in the Philippines. False, Robredo said, she “never saw or spoke with any E.U. official” while she was abroad. Continue Reading

February 21, 2018

Whether Malacañang has the legal right to lock out Rappler news reporter Pia Ranada and CEO Maria Ressa from Malacañang is obscured by the ugly light it casts on a government committed to openness and transparency. Besides, what can it hide from other media that it can by excluding Rappler? Continue Reading
