Hindi lamang ang mga news outlets sa Pilipinas ang nakakuha ng mga komento mula sa mga netizens tungkol sa pagkapanalo ng mamamahayag na si Maria Ressa, ngunit pati na rin ang Facebook post mismo ng Nobel Prize.
Makikita sa mga komento na tila hindi talaga sumasang-ayon ang mga netizens sa pagkapanalo ni Maria Ressa.
Narito ang ilang sa mga top comments:
“As a journalist, I’m for more accountability in press freedom, especially because it’s not an inherent right. The press is a modern invention, and I acknowledge that it must not be placed alongside or above free speech, on which, still, are needed certain limits and conditions. I stand against agenda-driven, slanted and selective journalism as I cry against suppression and oppression of the press. I believe, though, that there is far more danger in the abuse of this privilege than in its limiting.”
“You’re not a true journalist, you’re an operative with ZERO integrity. RESSA: LIAR LIAR PANTS ON FIRE — WAIT FOR HELL WHERE YOU’LL SURE RETIRE.”
“FACTS” coming from a peddler or fake news who was exposed in a BBC Hard Talk interview just last year. Yeah right. Sorry but Nobel Peace Prize has been taken for a ride.”
“I thought the news was a joke. The Nobel Peace Prize has truly lost its prestige. How can you give this award to a person who has maligned her “supposed” country. I say supposed because I’ve read before that she’s actually Indonesian. All she has done is spread lies and you are her victims because you actually believed her made up stories just to malign our well loved president who only wants peace and security for his beloved countrymen. This award is really a joke!”
“From Nobel to novelty! That’s how low this body have become with this. You never actually fact checked. If you did, you’d know this woman is a Libel case convict! Twists the truth through her editorials not news/journo. A fake news/disinformation queen paid by who knows who.”
“For the record no journalist is imprisoned in the Philippines and no publication or broadcast media has been shut down by the office of the Philippine president. Press freedom is very much alive in our country. Truth be told Maria Ressa has pending civil and criminal cases in the Philippine courts (libel, tax evasion, securities and exchange cases) and yet she can freely move around without fear of reprisal from the government. She is in no way treated like Julian Assange.”
“International “budol”. Congrats Ressa, I’m sorry for you Nobel. Freedom of expression is alive in the Philippines.. Ressa sensationalizes issues, negatively most of the time, (she was guilty of a libel case) for her personal gains (such as international awards i guess)..”
“I am a Filipino and I should be happy about this, but I am not. I have witnessed how Ressa and Rappler have vilified our government’s efforts. Despite what you say about how she got her Nobel Peace Prize, we will never agree to it. We are a free nation. Press freedom was never suppressed in The Philippines. She will never be an icon of peace in our eyes.”
“If freedom of speech is so suppressed in our country then why are we able to comment in this post? Her statements were just exaggerations just to discredit the good deeds of our president. And we the people of Philippines are obligated to defend our nation. Our identity. That woman is no hero.”
“Imagine you gave an award to a journalist who is known for spreading FAKE NEWS here in the Philippines. This creates an inspiration to other journalists that spreading fake news is okay.”
Sa kabila ng mga hindi sumasang-ayon, may mga netizens pa rin ang bumabati sa pagkapanalo ni Ressa.
“Congratulations, Maria Ressa! Your winning the Nobel Prize is a way the international community takes a stand on the Philippines’ current issues. I am beyond proud!!”
“You’re such an inspiration especially to the youth, the women, the marginalized and bullied. The last man standing is a woman!!!! MABUHAY KA MARIA RESSA!”
“Thank you Maria Ressa for fighting a good fight for us Filipinos especially. God bless you.”
“Proud Filipino for Maria Ressa! Congratulations! -from Philippines”
“Thank you Maria Ressa for holding the line for us in the Philippines. Well deserved recognition. Mabuhay ka!”
“Congrats for bringing another honor to this country,”
“You made us proud Ressa. Let your bravery be an inspiration for all other Filipinos to continue fighting for democracy.”
“Salute to our First Filipino Nobel Prize Winner.Thank you for bringing honor to our country, #MARIARESSA.”
“Very prestigious award!!! keep inspiring other journalists to speak the truth Maria Ressa”
