Maria Ressa & Ramona Diaz SPOTLIGHT | Disinformation, erosion of democracies & the prospect of jail
This is the second of the Media Tribe Spotlight series. This episode features CEO and Editor of Rappler, Maria Ressa and award winning Filipino-American documentary filmmaker and director of 'A Thousand Cuts', Ramona Diaz. In 2015 Maria Ressa interviewed Rodrigo Duterte, the now President of the Philippines, where he confessed to killing three people. When Duterte took office in 2016, Maria Ressa and her colleagues started reporting on the president's brutal war against drugs and the spread of disinformation on social media in the Philippines. Maria has remained in Duterte's crosshairs as his crackdown on the press has intensified and she’s been accused of fraud, tax evasion and receiving money from the Central Intelligence Agency. She has been arrested twice and has posted bail nine times. Maria is now the subject of the film ‘A Thousand Cuts’ directed by the indomitable Ramona Diaz, which premiered at Sundance last year and is now airing on PBS Frontline.
