A Critique on Philippine Mainstream Media Through the Use of Online Memes

Our project aims to expose and oppose the several different issues within today’s mainstream media in the Philippines. We highlighted what we believe are its most controversial issues; commercialism of the film industry, sensationalism in the news, media workers’ labor rights, redtagging and bias against activists, anti-LGBT homophobia, star system, content censorship and media blackouts, discourse on ‘indie’ vs. mainstream cinema, and the monopoly of power of the ruling elite.
