CA202: why study media?

Why Study Media: Press Freedom

We study media because it plays a very vital role in our life. It updates us on what is happening around us, and in the whole world. One important part of media is broadcasting, telling the world what, when, where, why and how a certain situation happened, and who were the people involved. Thus, bringing us to the jobs of the mediamen, they are those who work for any kinds of media sources like newspapers, radio, and television.

One situation was the coup d’état last Thursday, November 29, 2007, headed by Senator Antonio Trillanes IV, for the second time around. Some of us might not know it during that time for maybe we were busy with work or school etc; but because of the compliance of the mediamen to let us know about it, they went there even though they know that there is a chance for them to get hurt or worse, killed, in the coup that was going on there. The media men who were covering the certain event were taken as captives. They were handcuffed and were taken to a military camp by bus. "A shocking image that sends fears down the spine of journalists, but is also very clearly a violation of basic human rights.” said Roy Mabasa, NPC president. “This conduct clearly violates the rights of media practitioners and makes a mockery of the implementation of our laws. Due respect must be given to the least of our people, much more to journalists in line of duty” Senator Manny Villar said. They were desecrated just to have a scoop; one media men even sneaked his cellphone to call the network where he was working and tell them everything that is happening. Imagine that, he has already been held has captive by the rebels and yet he still manage to report the news.

Right then and there, media played a crucial role in delivering to us the news, but there is another side of the story. "We have reports that some members of the media even helped or have assisted Marine Capt. Nicanor Faeldon escape," the police investigator said. Accordingly, the media have become the shield of the rebels furthermore was liable to have slowed down the detainment of those who rebelled. They may even be charged of obstruction of justice."This is not an attack on the freedom of the press. We are just drawing the line here for some media men whom we believe to be in cahoots with coup plotters," the police official pointed out. Maybe this was for their own good; because nowadays mediamen are very insistent of covering such things that they were not supposed to. They show to the world the bad side of the country, of our politics. They have abused their freedom and wanted to do what they want and does not mind at all how it could affect others and if they meddle in other people’s business. They say that it is for the people to know, have not they thought that this situation will be less appalling if they were not there. They should have back away instead of going in the middle of the coup. Still, they would say that they were just doing their jobs.

Senator Trillanes finally stepped-down and was arrested. After they had been freed, the media still continued to do their job. They will still carry on even after all of the sadistic things that they have experienced. This is one of the good sides of mediamen; they are dedicated to their job. They keep it going for the sake of the news that they could bring to us to be informed. They need not care of what is going to happen to them. They continued to report each and every detail that they have gone through.

In the coming future, for sure, this event will be forgotten just like everything else. There will be much bigger news that will set this aside. And yet the media will still be there doing their jobs as a carrier of the message which they will bring us. The media will never be gone for as long as there is news, they will be there. They will do whatever they can to get the scoop.

Therefore, we need media and we need to study it, for, maybe, at some point in the future, we will be the ones who will deliver our message, our news to others. We will be those who risked everything just like in the said event. If we don’t, there will be no one to take the places of those that became part of history.

ayan kasi, hindi pa ko natuto. T_T

eto, nung wed, habang naglalakad kami ni patty, biglang, "miss may nahulog." at meron nga. nalaglag yung id ko at ung nakasabit sa id lace ko. buti na lang may nakakita at nakapansin.

pero malas, walang nakapansin kanina eh. ayan tuloy. (alam niyo na siguro...)

kasi naman, masyado ko minamadali papuntahin ng kapatid ko sa la salle, tapos nagmamadali din ako dahil may practice pa kami sa p.e. ayan tuloy.

ayun. bale umalis na ko ng bahay, tapos sumakay ng tricycle. sa pagkakaalam ko, nandun pa ung id ko nung nakasakay pa ako. tapos sumakay na ko ng jeep. pagkabayad ko, sabi ko "studyante po." biglang tingin sa id lace ko. at ayun na. nawala na pala ang id ko. nakakainis. balak ko pa sana siyang balikan kahit malayo layo na yun at kababayad ko palang. kaso, hindi ko na alam ang gagawin ko, masyado ko nataranta. at ayun. hinayaan ko nalang, hindi ko na ito hinahap.

kung sa tingin niyo medyo mababaw ang dahilan kong ito, okey lang. pero sobrang naluluha na ko at gusto ko ng umiyak sa jeep noon. pero nakakahiya, kung ano pa isipin nila sakin.
ayun. nakarating nako sa la salle at pinag-antay naman ako ng kapatid ko.tsk. tapos sinabi ko sa kanya ang nangyari. nainis siya sa umpisa pero wala na rin namang kaming magagawa. nawala na eh.

matapos nun, dumaretso na ko sa ust. habang sakay sa jeep, iniisip ko, "papapasukin kaya ako nito?" pero malamang hindi. pero oo din eh, sinabi ko na nawala nga ang id ko at magpapagawa ulit ako ng bago. so ayun. tuloy nalang kami sa practice. kinalimutan ko muna yung problema ko.

pero ng maalala ko ulit, tinanong ko na kung pano pero ang sabi kelangan daw ng reg form, kaya wala rin akong magawa. sa monday ko pa tuloy ito mapapagawa.kaya bigla akong nagsisi. nakakainis naman kasi. hindi pa ko nadala nung isang araw. hinayaan ko pa itong mangyari muli at tuluyan ng mawala.

ayan kasi, hindi pa ko natuto. tsk.

so close - jon mclaughlin - enchanted ost

You're in my arms
And all the world is gone
The music playing on
For only two
So close togehter

And when I'm with you
So close to feeling alive

A life goes by
Romantic dreams must die
So I bid mine goodbye
And never knew
So close was waiting
Waiting here with you
And now, forever, I know
All that I want is to hold you
So close

So close to reaching
That famous happy and
Almost believing
This one's not pretend
Now you're beside me
And look how far we've come
So far
We are
So close...

Oh, how could I face the faceless days
If I should lose you now?

We're so close to reaching
That famous hapyp end
Almost believing
This one's not pretend
Let's go on dreaming
Though we know we are
So close
So close, and still
So far...
