More than a liar and a fraud, Maria Ressa is also a convicted criminal

President Rodrigo Duterte issued a declaration just a few days ago: That Rappler CEO Maria Ressa is a fraud.

It’s tough being a ‘woke’ kid (and non-kids, at that) these days. It’s not like 20 or 30 years ago when youthful idealism and stupidity oftentimes crossed and produced ‘wokes’ of that generation.
