15_ The Center for Media Freedom and Responsibility


The Center for Media Freedom and Responsibility (CMFR) is a private, non-stock, non-profit foundation.

Its main objectives are to protect and strengthen the press as a pillar of democracy (the Fourth Estate), to promote journalistic excellence, and to engage different sectors of society in the growth of a quality press in the Philippines.

What the CMFR does is that it monitors attacks and threats against the press in the Philippines. In addition, it keeps a database of all the journalists that had been killed during their lines of duty.

However, even if its intentions are great, its website fails to appeal to the viewers for couple reasons.

First of all, all the fonts used are very small and difficult to read. Secondly, the readers have to scroll down for a while to read something. Thirdly, the pages are overcrowded with texts. By viewing the sources we can see that the designers of this site have used some Javascript here and there. It works well, however it is really not entertaining, maybe because of the colours used. In my opinion, even if the viewer is interested in the topic, he will get bored very quickly and look for anther website instead.
