Manolo Quezon is #TheExplainer Newsletter - Column and Coverage Omnibus

Manuel L. Quezon III

Being on the road meant an extended hiatus. Thank you for your patience and continuing support. My columns have chronicled the onset of the Marcos Restoration, the end (for now?) of the Duterte Era, and the first weeks of the Marcos Jr. administration. The Banyan column of The Economist last June 29, took note of the perspective I’ve been pursuing for some time now, that this marks the continuing End Times for the 5th Republic. The Financial Times correspondent also mentioned me in his story on the Marcos inaugural.
My column today now brings the story up-to-date.

Coverage of June 30, 2022
Some clips of the coverage of the Marcos inaugural: trying to set the stage as to the meaning of what is about to unfold, and then, after it unfolds (the oath-taking and inaugural address) having to analyze it not once, but twice, in quick succession. Such are the dynamics of television commentary.

I'm a columnist for the Philippine Daily Inquirer; an Editor at large at Spot.ph; I write on history, politics and culture; and I write speeches and have worked in political communications; and I used to broadcast (which is where The Explainer comes from); I also set up and maintain the Philippine Diary Project; this is a newsletter to keep readers abreast of what I've written, am writing, and think about what's going on as well as a way to expand topics and conversations on all sorts of issues. Ideally, this will come thrice weekly:
1. Every Monday: Electoral-Merry-Go Round, on the Road to the 2022 Presidential Elections
2. Every Wednesday or Thurday: My column, "The Long View" along with additional material/thoughts on the topic.
3. Passion Project Weekends: reviews and recommendations books, movies, and other things; updates on The Philippine Diary Project and other things I find interesting. If my podcast comes out, this is when I'd promote it.
