Sen. Aquilino Pimentel, Jr. has introduced a bill that in effect tells the media: If you not only fail to publish the reply of someone you have criticized, but fail to publish it in a certain form, in a certain slot, and within a certain time, you shall be fined. And if you do it too often you shall be both fined and thrown in jail.

That, proclaims Pimentel, "enables all persons to equitably exercise the right of reply."
