Nobel Peace Prize winning journalist calls out Mark Zuckerberg, links Facebook to the atom bomb

  • A Nobel Peace Prize spotlight isn’t what Facebook boss Mark Zuckerberg is used to.
  • Enter Maria Ressa, a journalist, the first winner in her tribe – alongside Russian Dmitry Muratov – since German Carl von Ossietzky in 1936, spitting fire, calling out Zuckerberg by name, even linking Facebook to the atom bomb.
  • As context, in the press announcement on October 8, the Nobel committee lauded the Filipina’s work against her country’s President, Rodrigo Duterte, but fell tactfully short of naming Zuckerberg or Facebook.
