24 Oras had the most negative slant on presidential candidates Sen. Richard Gordon (Bagumbayan), Sen. Ana Consuelo Madrigal (Independent) and Villar. Teledyaryo had minimal negative slant in its reports on Aquino and Gordon. TV Patrol World, meanwhile, did not have any negative slant in its reports on any of the presidential candidates.
While 24 Oras did not have a negative slant on any vice-presidential candidate and party-list group, TV Patrol World and Teledyaryo had minimal negative slant on two vice presidential candidates (Manzano and Roxas) and one party-list group (1-Utak).
No senatorial candidate suffered from any negative slant, but it had nothing to do with objective reporting but was the result of the scant coverage the senatorial campaign received during the period under review. (See Table 17)
