The most powerful government in the world is currently conducting a prosecution to protect its right to lie to the public about the evil things that it does, and somehow the public isn't shaking the earth with unmitigated rage about this.

"Assange isn't a journalist! He has an agenda!"

Every journalist in the world has an agenda. It just happens that most journalists have fame, wealth and esteem as their agenda while Assange's agenda is, in his own words, "crushing bastards."

It's crazy how there are still people who try to claim Assange isn't a journalist. He is, and it's not even debatable. Publishing information that informs the public about what's going on in the world is exactly the thing that journalism is.

~

The mainstream press have been far, far less critical of immensely powerful world-dominating government agencies than they've been of one thin, frail man locked in a cage who published inconvenient facts about those agencies.

~

The very worst fringe conspiracy theories do far less damage than mainstream, establishment-promoted conspiracy theories.

If I died today my one regret would be that I wasn't mean enough to shitty MSM reporters.
