In the dark, dark days of martial law, we used to read between the lines, to ferret out the truth. Now we read between the lies, and wonder where Truth has gone.
I’m Dana Batnag, a journalist who covers the Philippines for Jiji Press, a Tokyo-based news agency. Before Jiji, I worked for the Manila Chronicle, the Philippine Graphic, and the Manila Times. I’m a graduate of UP Diliman. Of course it goes without saying that my employer has nothing to do with the opinions expressed here, which are solely mine.
Special thanks to Mark Baul, who created the beautiful header.
