Maria Ressa, winner of the Nobel Peace Prize and co-founder of Rappler.com, discusses her long career in journalism, from the People Power Revolution that drove Ferdinand Marcos from power to the rise of demagogic populism that brought his son, Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos, Jr., back to the presidency. In this searching conversation, Ressa explains the repression of free journalism in the Philippines, the rise of misinformation and fake news, the complicity of massive online platforms like Facebook, and the ghastly toll of Rodrigo Duterte’s drug war. Ressa sat down with the Better Tomorrow Speaker Series for this interview while in Honolulu for the East-West Center’s International Media Conference.
