Recent global shifts toward nationalism have led to a deterioration of press freedom worldwide. Journalist Maria Ressa has been on the front lines of this battle. Her organization, Rappler, has been investigated extensively by the Filipino government following its reporting of Rodrigo Duterte’s presidency in the Philippines. As CEO, Ressa has been arrested and accused of libel, sparking worldwide calls to drop the charges against her.

In our fireside chat, we’ll discuss the critical need for speaking out about press freedom, the need to continue reporting in the face of political threats, and how her digital-first organization fights the spread of misinformation.

This session is designed for:

  • Newsrooms grappling with the deterioration of press freedom worldwide
  • Reporters looking to learn techniques and strategies for investigating powerful people
  • Everyone who believes in a free press and the power of investigative journalism

Featuring

Anita Zielina
Director of News Innovation and Leadership, Newmark J-School at CUNY
