Many may want to forget 2020 for obvious reasons. Many lives were lost and many lives, too, were drastically changed as the world did battle with the coronavirus pandemic. That battle has not been won.
In the Philippines, the unprecedented health crisis further highlighted the flaws and misplaced priorities of President Rodrigo Duterte and his administration.
While the nation is among the list of countries badly hit by the virus, Duterte and his allies went on their usual attacks on dissent and democracy. Disinformation remains rampant as well.
On Thursday, December 17, the Newsbreak team sits down to look back at the year that was, and anticipates the best and worst-case scenarios for the coming year.
The discussion with multimedia reporters Pia Ranada, Camille Elemia, Sofia Tomacruz, and news editor Paterno Esmaquel II will be moderated by managing editor Chay Hofileña.
