Maria Ressa talks about why fighting for facts is critical for a sustainable future

Maria Ressa, the CEO of Rappler and joint recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize for 2021, was a keynote speaker at the FIBEP World Media Intelligence Congress that took place last week (Nov 2-4).

Maria Ressa is a Filipino-American journalist and co-founder of the news site Rappler. She is well known for exposing corruption and misrule of the government of President Rodrigo Duterte (How to stand up to a dictator, Penguin, 07/04/2022) and she has faced significant threats for her work. The Nobel Committee commended Maria for using freedom of expression to “expose abuse of power, use of violence and growing authoritarianism in her country, the Philippines”.

“This shows that the Nobel Peace Prize committee realized that a world without facts means a world without truth and trust“, she said.

The session was sponsored by DataScouting and the discussion was moderated by Sophia Karakeva, FIBEP Vice President and Chief Communications Officer at DataScouting.
