Inquirer front page update

In the past 6 days that I have monitored the Inquirer, I graded the score as to who is favored by their front page as follows:

Aquino: 5
Estrada: 1
All the rest: 0

It is also important to note how very negative the Inquirer's front page is becoming to Sen. Villar. Read my latest observation at my Inquirer Front Page blog.

A New Blog: The Inquirer Front Page

I have created a new blog monitoring the Inquirer's front page. Of course, the title of the blog is "The Inquirer Front Page".

In the past few days, I began to monitor the Inquirer to study who the paper is endorsing in the May 2010 Elections (read: Why this Blog?). I suspect the Inquirer is giving positive news for Aquino, negative for Villar and Teodoro, and neutral for all the rest. I may be wrong so I am taking a look. So far, in the past four days, I think the Inquirer Front Page gave Sen. Aquino the positive news, 4 times in a row.

I wonder how it will play out until election day?

Sentro April 15, 2010

Last Thursday, Sentro again had all of us three, Iya, Orion and myself talking about issues in the coming elections that sadly are not the issues discussed in the mainstream.

Inquirer Front Page, April 16, 2010

It is really quite interesting to look at how the Inquirer is setting the news agenda these days. Here is a look at their today's front page. Who is favored in their news today?

As everyone can see, this front page is basically a negative press for President Arroyo. Meanwhile, Senators Aquino and Roxas has some exposure here, reminding everyone of the supposedly corrupt Jocjoc Bolante..

As for the presidentiables, I say this one again goes for Sen. Aquino. So far in my books, the score is: Aquino: 2, All others: 0!



Meanwhile, as everyone would know, the President is coming back from Madrid today. If the Inquirer is to be relied upon, the news that we have regarding the Madrid trip is all about the unsupported assertion that the President's delegation requires a "lean" 50 room in the Madrid Ritz Hotel worth more than Euro200 nightly. We also know about her award from the Spanish government for promoting the Spanish language. Of course, in passing, there is mention about a meeting between Arroyo and the Spanish President and another meeting with the Spanish King. Surprisingly, the agenda of the meeting was totally left out. What should have been the headline today is totally not on the Inquirer's radar.

Inquirer's Front Page

It may be interesting to see how the Inquirer is taking on the news these days.. People are free to guess who their first page news is favoring. I say it is Sen. Noynoy Aquino on this one. What do you think?

Update: Meanwhile, the following is the link to our interview with Gov. Joey Salceda last October, 2009, right after Ondoy and right when there were talks about a reconstruction commission (BTW, I wonder what happened to that commission, another case of Ningas Cogon?).

(Note: Actual interview starts at 24.01)
