Even American officials have expressed their support for Rappler CEO Maria Ressa after she was found "guilty” of cyber libel. Former US Senator Hillary Clinton said that Ressa was convicted for just doing her job as a journalist in the country. She added that the attack on press freedom is also an attack on democracy.
