Guardian News published this video item, entitled “Moment Maria Ressa learns of Nobel peace prize win during Zoom call” – below is their description.
Maria Ressa, the journalist and founder of the Philippine news organisation Rappler, said she was ‘speechless’ after learning of her Nobel peace prize win while participating in a panel discussion on journalism in south-east Asia.
Ressa could be seen answering a call from the Norwegian Nobel committee informing her of her win on the event’s live video feed. Reacting with visible shock, she briefly left the panel to continue the call.
‘It’s a recognition of how we’re going to win the battle for truth,’ she said, after returning to the discussion. ‘We hold the line.’
