Davao Councilors Sign Petition vs. Right of Reply Bill

Davao Councilors Sign Petition vs. Right of Reply Bill

Twenty-one councilors of Davao City signed the petition against the Right of Reply Bill on April 21, Cheryll Fiel, Davao-based director of the National Union of Journalist of the Philippines (NUJP) said. The NUJP-Davao Chapter held a signature campaign in the city updating the list of signatories to 742 since its launch in February 2009.

On the same day, journalists nationwide held different protest actions against the bill. In Ozamis City, NUJP members had a radio-hopping activity. It was a black shirt day for Baguio and Pampanga journalists while our Negros Occidental colleagues opted for red and white shirts as a sign of protest.

Iloilo journalists wore white ribbons and had anti-Right of Reply Bill teasers and audio plugs.
Another signature campaign was held in Kalibo, Aklan while Kidapawan journalists read the unified statement (see below) in the airwaves.

Media leaders in Manila had a dialogue with House Speaker Prospero Nograles at the Speaker’s Lounge of the House of Representatives in Quezon City after a short protest action in front of the South Gate of the HOR.

Below is the unified statement against the Right of Reply Bill and the updated list of signatories as of April 23, 2009.

Dear Colleague:

Please sign your name and your media outfit and send back to this email address. Thank you.


1. The Right of Reply Bill is an ill-conceived piece of legislation that violates two of the most cherished freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution, those of the press and of expression.

2. It is both unfortunate and ironic that the principal authors of the bill in the two chambers of Congress ought to have known better, Senator Aquilino Pimentel Jr. having earned his reputation as a champion of civil rights and Bacolod Representative Monico Puentevella having been president of the Negros Press Club.

3. It is also clear, from the pronouncements of both lawmakers, that this bill is a product of the sorriest excuse for legislation – personal pique.

4. The House version of the bill, HB 3306, parrots the Senate’s SB2150 except it would have the reply run a day after receipt instead of the three days the Senate grants, and seeks to impose heftier fines and the absence of self-regulation (in the case of block-timers) and sunset clauses.

5. Both bills state that “all persons…who are accused directly or indirectly of committing, having committed or intending to commit any crime or offense defined by law, or are criticized by innuendo, suggestion or rumor for any lapse in behavior in public or private life shall have the right to reply to charges or criticisms published or printed in newspapers, magazines, newsletters or publications circulated commercially or for free, or aired or broadcast over radio, television, websites, or through any electronic devices.”

6. They also would mandate that these replies be “published or broadcast in the same space of the newspapers, magazine, newsletter or publication, or aired over the same program on radio, television, website or through any electronic device.”

7. The danger in the right of reply bill is that it would legislate what the media OUGHT to publish or air, while casting a chilling effect that could dissuade the more timorous from publishing or airing what they SHOULD.

8. The bills would free public officials, especially the corrupt – and they are legion – of accountability and give them carte blanche to force their lies on the suffering public.

9. As one article on the right of reply bill says, “It lumps together imputations of a crime with simple criticism ‘of any lapse in behavior in public or private life’ or what would otherwise be considered ‘fair comment.’ There is no judicial review. It does not differentiate direct and indirect criticism. It has been noted that under the proposed law a journalist does not even have to be in error to draw a right of reply claim.”

10. We would be the last to say that the Philippine media are without fault. Yes, we understand perfectly the frustration and anger of Pimentel and Puentevella over some media outlet’s refusal to air their sides on issues.

11. Alas, but we cannot allow the sins of the few to be an excuse for the wholesale muzzling of a free press and the suppression of free expression. To do so would allow bad governance to triumph.

12. We call on Senator Pimentel and Representative Puentevella to withdraw their bills.

13. We urge the media and the people to close ranks against the passage of this bill, to challenge it before the Supreme Court if it is passed, and, if even that fails, to defy it by refusing to comply.

14. No less than our freedoms are at stake. This is a battle we cannot afford to lose.
