Aquino blasts ‘negative’ Philippine media

Philippines News:
MANILA, Philippines – President Benigno Aquino on Friday night lashed out at Philippine media for alleged bias toward negative news reports.
Aquino, in his speech at the 25th anniversary celebration of TV Patrol at the Manila Hotel, said he wants a positive spin in news stories and commentaries from ABS-CBN’s flagship primetime news broadcast.
“The news shouldn’t be about competing with other outfits on who can sell the most negative headlines; it shouldn’t just be about attracting more and more readers in the short term. Think about it: In the long term, how many people would be willing to pay just to have their day daily ruined? How long can an audience withstand negativism day in and day out?” Aquino said.
