Development/Policy issues were the second most covered election-related theme if the numbers of the three news programs were combined. The candidates’ statements or promises as regards solutions to the current power crisis were the most reported development/policy issue, followed by their platform of government and policy pronouncements on other pressing concerns. (See Table 8)

TV Patrol World’s election-related reports focused more on Other Issues. Among the top issues in this category were celebrity endorsements, the celebrities’ opinions on the elections, the prospects of having foreign observers, and vote-buying. 24 Oras and Teledyaryo had two reports each on how the power crisis could affect the May 10 elections. (See Table 9)

Candidates and party-list groups as news sources
Among the presidential candidates, the three news programs’ top news sources were Teodoro, Villar and Aquino. The other candidates were seldom used in the election-related reports during the period in review.
Teodoro proved to be the top news source on TV Patrol World. On the other hand, 24 Oras had as top news sources Aquino and Villar; while Teledyaryo had Teodoro and Villar. (See Table 10)

With the exception of Manzano, TV Patrol World did not use any vice-presidential candidate as a news source. Minimal use of the vice-presidential candidates as news sources was also apparent in 24 Oras and Teledyaryo. The latter had only Legarda and Manzano as vice presidential news sources. (See Table 11)
