THIS MONDAY (MAY 9) is Judgment Day for the Republic of the Philippines: Election Day (E-Day). 54.4 million registered voters will take part and flock to the polling stations to cast the ballot on who will be the 16th President and his/her Vice President.
For Philippine television observers and recorders, this day will mark the biggest assessment and battle of broadcasting technology, set design, impartiality of their news delivery and coverage continuity for each participating network.
FOR THE PAST two months, you were able to watch at least one of the first COMELEC-organized debate series after 24 years — three (3) presidential and one (1) vice-presidential.
After yesterday’s final leg of the PiliPinas Debates 2016, you already decided who to vote for President and Vice President on May 9 but if not, don’t worry, the Turf says, “Take your time.”
In this post, how did each leg of the debate played out? Will this assessment pose their respective better coverage on Election Day itself? Let’s analyze them in detail.
NOTE: The Turf did not include the Harapan ng Bise on ABS-CBN that happened last April 17 because they’re not organized by COMELEC.
DECEMBER IS HERE, once again. We already reached the final month of 2015 and the Turf thinks out: “How would the coverage throughout the holiday month will play on?”
