Charles Glass talks about the arrest of Julian Assange, which is being cheered by partisans on both sides, since he has done enough to make enemies everywhere. What’s astounding is that most of the mainstream media is fine with his imprisonment too, even though what Assange does is what all good journalists should try to do.
Discussed on the show:
- “Julian Assange Languishes in Prison as His Journalistic Collaborators Brandish Their Prizes” (The Intercept)
- “WikiLeaks cites report saying Clinton mulled killing Assange with drones” (The Washington Examiner)
