Maria Ressa Sues VP Leni Robredo For Plagiarism

MANILA Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – It’s a line that Rappler CEO Maria Ressa has repeated many times: “A lie repeated a thousand times becomes the truth.”

Now, Ressa is suing Philippine Vice President Leno Robredo for plagiarism.

The lawsuit stems from a video interview with Robredo — conducted by Ressa herself —where the Vice President said that lies repeated many times become the truth.

That didn’t sit well with Ressa because she says Robredo stole that line from her.

Meanwhile, the estate of Nazi Propagandist Joseph Goebbels is also suing Ressa for plagiarism.  Apparently, the line about  lies being repeated becoming the truth originated from Goebbels.
