How Maria Ressa Accused Facebook During MSNBC Interview:



In an exclusive interview with MSNBC, Maria Ressa aired her monumental tantrum over how social media is conspiring against the "goodness" of Rappler and everything she stands for.

The former CNN correspondent in Asia, Maria Ressa also accused Facebook of, of all things, "undermining democracy." Maria Ressa in collaboration with MSNBC accused the Duterte admin of conniving with Facebook to become more relevant or popular in social media.


Maria Ressa and MSNBC could not accept the fact according to Mark Zuckerberg Facebook is just a platform upon which any kind of information - including "fake news" - is easily spread. Indeed, Facebook is a democracy in its purest form because on Facebook, what is popular wins.

A concerned netizen who reacted with the interview of Maria Ressa noted that Philippine Pres. Rody Duterte did not win because of social media "bots" and "trolls" spreading "fake news." He continues to enjoy a high approval rating after almost two years in power, something that would have been impossible to achieve if he had been governing on a platform of lies.
