TWENTY-FIVE YEARS, nine veteran journalists established the Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism. Much has changed since 1989, in the realm of politics, the economy, society – and technology as well.
Indeed, the way we do journalism has changed. From ballpens and small notebooks, many journalists now use laptops and digital recorders. Analog cameras have given way to high definition cameras. The cassette tape has also gone the same way of the eight-track player.
Yet while so much has changed, so much remains the same. The principles of good journalism have stood the test of time – accuracy, fairness and balance, attention to detail, and the mission to tell the story in the most compelling manner.
Today’s Sulyap, or video short, is a look back at how the technology of journalism has changed in the last two and a half decades. This video short was produced and edited by PCIJ multimedia producer Cong B. Corrales.
