But the irony of ironies is that the Rappler CEO may have set herself up for a possible sedition charge.
In a recent interview with The Financial Times (FT), Ressa said “it would be great if we didn’t have to fight our government.”
Sedition is defined as action or language that incites people to oppose or fight their duly-constituted government.
By admitting that she is fighting the government, Ressa all but provided Exhibit A that could be used against her in the court of law.
Ressa likes to say, “A lie told a thousand times becomes the truth.”
If Ressa keeps repeating what she told FT, it may just become the truth.
