The intense battle between the two presidential front-runners has raised concerns over the resort to “black operations” in a political campaign. A leading broadcast network found itself at the vortex of the raging propaganda battle last week. Maria Ressa, head of news and current affairs for ABS-CBN, related how the network got embroiled in a controversy spawned by propaganda unleashed by the Nacionalista Party of Sen. Manuel Villar.

In an article entitled “Telling It Like It Is,” published by ABS-CBN News online on April 12, Ms. Ressa recounted that on the morning of April 8, she convened her editorial staff to “discuss a potentially explosive document given to us by a source from the Nacionalista Party.” Later in the day, she wrote, “We received the same document from another source in the Nacionalista Party.”
