Best of Recode Decode: Maria Ressa
In this best-of episode, Recode's Kara Swisher talks to Rappler CEO Maria Ressa about doing investigative journalism in the Philippines, where social media has emboldened an autocratic president. Ressa — currently appealing a "cyber libel" conviction — explains why the Philippines was a cautionary tale for the United States, how Facebook's inaction on disinformation poisoned the political discourse, and what Mark Zuckerberg told her when she tried to appeal to him directly.
