Along with her colleagues, Ressa, a TIME Magazine 2018 Person of the Year and the CEO and co-founder of the independent Philippine news site Rappler, has been at the forefront of chronicling Duterte’s brutal war on drugs, enduring harassment, arrests and a cyber libel conviction that could send her to prison.
