    Blogging about the Elections Blogging about the Elections Presentation Transcript

    • Blogging about the Elections Luz Rimban iBlog 4 April 26, 2008
    • Why blog about elections?
      • Mainstream media can’t cover everything
      • Mainstream media is highly selective about its coverage
      • Bloggers, as citizen journalists, can/must fill the gaps
      • Citizen journalism can help reconnect the public with the political process
    • The following issues got little media coverage in 2004
      • Party-list elections
      • Local elections
      • Senatorial elections
      • Policy development issues
      From CMFR media monitoring of the media coverage of the 2004 elections.
    • Coverage of 2007 elections
      • Coverage not as extensive
      • Media noted public disinterest, skepticism over electoral institutions
      • Focused on TU vs. GO
      From CMFR media monitoring of the media coverage of the 2007 elections.
    • Other gaps:
      • Failure to turn key issues into election issues:
        • “ Hello, Garci”
        • Extrajudicial killings
        • Corruption
      • Linking local issues and elections with national issues and contests
    • Citizen journalism:
      • “ Journalism done by non-journalists”
      • “ Non-journalists doing random acts of journalism”
      • “ guerilla-style journalism”
      • “ the new alternative press”
    • Bloggers as citizen journalists can…
      • Spot news stories
      • Report them
      • Take video or still photos
      • Deliver commentary and analysis
      • Engage big media in dialog about news issues:
        • Ethics
        • Inner workings of the media
        • Journalists’ methods of covering the news
    • Questions:
      • How to do it?
      • How do bloggers work with other election watchdogs?
      • How do bloggers get the public interested in the effort?
    • What can be done?
      • Brainstorm about blogging on the elections
      • Develop a bloggers’ election handbook
      • Train bloggers in election coverage
      • The End.
      • Thank you.
