Should the government implement a policy that will accredit social media publishers to cover Malacañang events? IMHO, a big fat NO!

IMHO NO, blogging is supposed to be personal – a passion. Unless you have an EXTENSIVE legal, public administration background and that’s your passion, still, I find it weird. Because:
1. Bloggers usually write (like me) on their free time because we have day jobs as well. Even if you’re already a ‘maverick’ like Anton Diaz, he writes about food & tourism – his passion; Now do we see anyone be a maverick at ‘covering’ (waiting for) Malacanang press junkets? Don’t you all have other things to do?

2. Blogging is about personal opinions so there are biases. You can share thoughts about current issues on your blog from the comfort of your home. from a coffee shop,etc. Why want to be at Malacanan?

3. Groups blogs still have varying opinions; what’s the point? Again you can share thoughts about current issues on your blog from the comfort of a coffee shop,etc. Why want to be at Malacanan?

4. Newspapers, TV stations and other news organizations already have their ‘online’ arm. So from their acrredited reporter at Malacanan, they throw it on their portals as well. You don’t need to be in Malacanan.

5. If you want an ‘accreditation’ after all that I’ve cited, then you must be in it for the bragging rights. Stay out of Malacanan.
