Welcome to Volume 6 of The Marocharim Experiment. This blog is authored and maintained by Marocharim, the self-professed antichrist of new media.

Image hosted by

Marocharim is a 21-year-old college senior from the University of the Philippines Baguio, majoring in Social Anthropology and has a minor in Political Science. He lives with his parents, his brother and his sister in Baguio City - having been born and raised there all his life. He is the author of three book-versions of The Marocharim Experiment.

Most of his time is spent at school, where he can be found in the UP Baguio Library reading or scribbling notes, and sometimes hanging out with his friends or by himself in the kiosks, or the main lobby. During his spare time, he continues writing. When not in school he hangs out with his friends, or takes long walks around Baguio City to, as he puts it, "get lost."

< hmmm... >

   Yesterday's siege at the Manila Peninsula left so many mediamen arrested and rounded up to Bicutan.  Their hands were tied with plastic straps and sent on over to a police station.  Media violence?

   Send me hate mail: I don't think so.

   Before anything else, the police had no right to cuff media practicioners with twist ties.  Heck, they didn't have any right to arrest a media practicioner, never mind that Magdalo members posture as mediamen.  But on the other side, just what are media practicioners doing in a sensitive military operation that involves gassing a hotel?

   I'm no lawyer, but I've been some degree of a journalist before: a bad one, at that.  I don't know what's worse: a "subjective journalist" without a Journalism degree like myself, or media practicioners with Journalism degrees who step over the line of prudence with cameras and tape recorders to get an exclusive.

   There's media violence: journalists who get abducted and/or killed for doing their jobs in the line of duty.  And then there's a violent media: the kind of media that shoves microphones and cameras to people, breaches security lines, all in the name of an "exclusive report."  From the standpoint of a viewer, I think it sucks: is it even "journalism?"

   I don't know: I'm not a journalist.
