The following excerpt announcement was sent out from The Atlantic:
We’re writing with terrifically exciting news: Maria Ressa, one of the world’s bravest and most brilliant journalists, is joining The Atlantic as a contributing writer. Maria, who is the co-recipient of the 2021 Nobel Peace Prize, is regarded around the world as a great champion of the free press, and she has fought valiantly in the Philippines for the right to speak her mind.
As many of you know, Maria is the co-founder and CEO of Rappler, one of just a handful of news organizations in the Philippines.
Maria will write for us about democracy, press freedom, and the social web. We are exceedingly grateful for all that Maria has done for the cause of independent journalism, and we’re honored to be able to provide a home for some of her best writing.
