Media Organizations in the Philippines

Introduction

Government and private media organizations co-exist in the Philippines. Owing to the free-market orientation of the Philippine economy, however, the number of private media communication networks far outnumber their government counterparts.

As such, there is no strict "hierarchical" structure mandated by law for the private media industry as a whole. Any semblance of "structural order" in the private sector is self-imposed through the various trade organizations in broadcasting, print, advertising, and public relations.

However, vital sectors of media which partake of the public domain are regulated or monitored by government quasi-judicial bodies, as in the case of the broadcast airwaves, videograms, and movie production and distribution.
