In its thrust to bring relevant reportage to the students of the College of Mass Communication, Tinig ng Plaridel (TNP) has come up with What’s Behind? starting last AY 2007-2008. It is a special section designed to, quite literally, allow readers to look behind a particular issue, examine the nitty gritty and its different key players. In short, the stories behind the stories. Past topics have included the Ampatuan Massacre, the Office of the Student Regent, and the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program, which to date is TNP’s most viewed article online.
The country’s first-ever automated election is now over. Every leader of the three branches of government is being replaced. How well do we really know the next leaders of the Philippines? TNP brings you What’s Behind? The 2010 Election Series that will profile the incoming leaders of the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government, as well as the city’s new local executive. What is their background? What were the circumstances surrounding their placement in their current position? Based on past statements and actions, what can be expected of them?
What’s Behind? The 2010 Election Series will run weekly profiles for a month, beginning today with articles featuring the experiences of two media volunteers.
Inform, and be informed as TNP provides context and nuance to one of the country’s most exciting and historically significant events—the 2010 election.
