Julian Assange 1st Interview After Release

24 December 10 your social media marketing partner


A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

Whenever I see an interview of Julian Assange, I am always struck by the look of resolve on his face. This man is fearless, he knows exactly what he is doing, and he is determined to do it. He is a heroic truth-teller, and I pray for his safety.

The world and specially American people should be grateful to these courageous and talented young people that decided to do what is right exposing the corruption around the world.For those,who didn't noticed before,governme nts and corporations lie constantly to the public and Wikileaks organization and it's whistle blowers collaborators are doing the job that journalist and reporters forgot to do it.So thank you WIKILEAKS and those that make its job possible. By the way,we heard about Julian Assange autobiography,p lease make possible that we can buy it from independent media websites.

When discussing the Wikileaks Affair, always remember this:

"The real intent of the First Amendment was to prevent nati onal suicide by making it difficult for the government to operate in secret, free from the scrutiny of a watchful press."        

—I.F. Stone’s Weekly, October 3, 1966

Izzy usually had the correct point of view.

He has taken a toll in this hunt against him, and it shows in his face. May God keep him safe.

I felt the interviewer was quite hostile, asked trip-up questions and gave ridiculous unsupported statements about things such as "how the American people perceive Julian Assange" Julian came through the interview exhibiting his burning sense of how important truth and transparency are. He is a pioneer in 21st Century journalism via the internet. I also pray for his and his colleagues' safety on their journey toward truth.
