Since Powell's Iraq-Lie - will the same trick work with Iran - Al Jazeera English May 25, 2019



Al_Jazeera(Arabic: الجزيرة‎, translated: “The Island”) from Doha, Qatar,is one of the best news outlets to cover the middle east.

Qatar is not a friend of Saudi Arabia and other Arabic countries – so you can assume they are “mostly” objective while at the same time producing high quality content such as this video.

Headlines that try to manipulate the public are called “... show more

I do think Assange was biased in how/when he chose to use the information given to him during the 2016 US elections - but if political bias were a crime then every major US news network would have most of their journalists rounded up with Assange.

There is something much more vile at work here than journalistic bias or misconduct. We are watching fascism emerge, and learning that it doesn't slyly slither up, like a serpent before swiftly attacking its prey, no, it walks in the front door of our country, wipes it's feet on the welcome mat, is welcomed in with open arms and sits down to dinner with your family and friends.

The ideology behind protecting journalists, to use another apt metaphor, is the oil on the gears of democracy. Without that lubricant, that flow of critical information to the people, the machine inevitably grinds to a halt.

Metaphor and crafted phrases aside, no matter what your politics may be, or your opinion of Julian Assange, if you're a US citizen (or anyone that values democracy over fascism, really) then this should seem highly disturbing... show more

#Disgusting: United Kingdom sentences Julian Assange to prison

#WikiLeaks founder #JulianAssange received the #maximum #sentence of one year at Southwark #CrownCourt, #London, for breaching #bail conditions seven years ago.




The original case in #Sweden, that the bail conditions were issued for, has been dropped many years ago, because it turned out to be a #hoax. Applying for #asylum without #permission of the #Crown is #illegal in the #UnitedKingdom!

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange wins journalism award

It is sponsored by European parliamentarians after being established in 2018 in honour of assassinated Maltese journalist Daphne Galizia.
The award is given to individuals "uncovering the truth and exposing it to the public" and to honour "individuals or groups who have been intimidated and/or persecuted for uncovering the truth and exposing it to the public".

"His imprisonment and threatened extradition to the United States has drawn a sharp line in the sand. You are either encouraging the crackdown on media freedom or you are standing with Julian Assange."

Julian Assange Arrest
I thought I had a pretty solid opinion on the #Assange arrest recently. The start of the recent #PodSaveTheWorld episode made me think, "oh, so theirs that too." Fucking nuance.

The Indictment of Julian Assange Is a Threat to Journalism


It is important to recognize that the legal charges brought against the founder of WikiLeaks this week have nothing to do with Russia or the 2016 election.

Women's perspectives on #Assange


#WikiLeaks #founder #rapist ? #journalist ? #hacker ? #truth teller ? #2012 #article written by #women
It seems even clearer now, that the allegations against him are a smokescreen behind which a number of governments are trying to clamp down on WikiLeaks for having audaciously revealed to the public their secret planning of wars and occupations with their attendant rape, murder and destruction.

Chomsky: Arrest of Assange Is “Scandalous” and Highlights Shocking Extraterritorial Reach of U.S.

On the book Assange clutched onto when being arrested

Looking frail after seven years in his cramped embassy quarters, Assange emerged and pointedly held out a copy of ‘Gore Vidal: History of The National Security State (Includes Vidal on America)’.

The book immediately drew attention given Assange’s long-running battles with those who wield power and seek to protect powerful interests, and Vidal’s musings on the same topics. The U.S. Justice Department accuses Assange of conspiring with Chelsea Manning to break into a classified government computer at the Pentagon; his defenders, including whistleblower Edward Snowden, called Assange’s arrest a grave blow to press freedom.

After Assange’s copy of the book was spotted, the Real News Network posted a series of Jay’s interviews with Vidal from 2007. They cover power, public information, politics and more, and include Vidal’s assertion that President Harry Truman decided, after the Second World War, to make a ready-made enemy out of J
