The findings on the media coverage of presidential candidates in the United States remind me of the recent media monitoring coverage of the 2007 senatorial and party-list elections in the Philippines conducted by the Center for Media Freedom and Responsibility (CMFR).

John McCain was among the top three most-covered candidates, but his overall rating was negative. Most reporting on him related to his controversial Iraq war policies and trouble fundraising.

obama. he's so straightforward about things. when discussing issues, he acknowledges the negative parts. i've blogged about it, actually, haha. maybe he could use a little more political experience, though, one-time senator pa lang kasi sya. but maybe that helps kasi hindi sya trapo? anyhoo. grabe ang charisma. si hillary, mukha namang shrewd and cunning, katakot. haha.

for all of america's flaws and imperialism ekek, naiinggit ako na pag election issues talaga yung pinag-uusapan, habang satin nagsasayawan lang mga pulitiko. haaaaay.
