  MARAMI ang nahihirapang pumili ng kanilang mga kandidato para sa pagka-pangulo at pangalawang pangulo ng Pilipinas.

Sagutin ninyo…*

KAYA parang kumikinang ang rehimen ni Ferdinand Marcos Sr. ngayon ay dahil naging malaya ang media pagkatapos ng kanyang diktadura.

Ang kawalan ng kalayaan sa pamamahayag ang isa sa mga pangunahing dahilan […]
