 Report of the National Press Club, 19. This source mentions that Signs was ordered closed by the MAC on 5 December 1974, but E. San Juan, Jr. in “Marcos and the media” dates the order to December 1976. The archive of the Human Rights Violations Victims’ Memorial Commission also has issues of Signs dated 1975, suggesting that 1976 is the correct date; it is also possible however that Signs was opened and shut multiple times in the 1980s. Further research will be needed for a more conclusive dating of the closure/s.
