Journalist John Pilger has recently visited imprisoned WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and has raised an alarm about Assange's "deteriorated" health.

Pilger said in a Tweet on Wednesday that Assange is "isolated" and treated "worse than a murderer."

"I now fear for him," Pilger wrote.

Where, indeed?! :(

So much wrong with this one. So many different laws being broken, by so many countries, and so many invented crimes and so much outright impropriety. And, so much at stake, yet no real public objection.

If anything, there appears to be more support than objection from the dumbed-down masses.

Not only do people not seem to care about what's happening to Julian, but they also don't seem to mind that an American citizen can just be slammed back in prison after a Presidential commutation, with no additional charges, and fined into bankruptcy on top of that.

So much is going on around us that MSM has no time for Assange. Guns are again in the news + Trump daily circus + Kashmere + democratic primaries...

"...MSM has no time for Assange."

Only when you're living in the alternate reality the MSM maintains for you. Enjoy your Kool-Aid.

I think Crispy meant that as a criticism of the MSM. The MSM wouldn't be capable of that, though, without the support of masses of dumbed down citizens.

You're right. It might have just been sarcasm, in mockery of the MSM. It just didn't strike me that way the first two times I read it. Hmm. Crispy?

Hi, Crispy! Sarcasm doesn't work well on social media. Some of us are hoping your comment was meant to be "tongue-in-cheek".

You are correct. Sarcasm and dry humour can be misunderstood. It's best just to say what you mean and leave the witty stuff for the grown ups. 😄
