Representatives from the academe who did a survey on the coverage of the recent election campaign received some flak when they initially reported their findings during the Cebu Citizens Press Council yesterday.
The primary objection was the exclusion of the lamp post issue as an election-related issue. As a result, the tally for news items on corruption was nil compared to stories on candidates platforms and promises.
I definitely agree. Everytime Cris Saavedra opens his mouth on the lamp post issue, he hit Jonkie Ouano.
Jonkie eventually lost the elections while most of his team mates won.
