- Media is a powerful tool to spread truth and goodness in society. It is a crucial vehicle in our pursuit of the common good, which includes justice and charity for all.
- Media is for people. It advocates only what is best for each person.

I am indebted to the Center for Media Freedom and Responsibility (CMFR), whose “Monitor” section of its acclaimed publication, PJR Reports, inspired me to create this little blog. Credit is also due to Atty. Marichu Lambino, UP Journalism Department head, who introduced me to the idea of media monitoring (and publishing our works in a blog) when I took her journalism ethics class a few years back. -DZ
