US President Joe Biden on Friday congratulated investigative journalists Maria Ressa of the Philippines and Dmitry Muratov of Russia for winning the Nobel Peace Prize for their work promoting freedom of expression.
“Ressa and Muratov have pursued the facts — tirelessly and fearlessly,” Biden said in a statement. “They have worked to check the abuse of power, expose corruption, and demand transparency.
“They have been tenacious in founding independent media outlets and defending them against forces that seek their silence.”
