Steve Kroft — You’re No Julian Assange
OMG. I just watched Steve Kroft’s 60 Minutes interview with Julian Assange.
Right off the bat Kroft set Assange up to be hated: He’s “eccentric” and he has to wear an “ankle bracelet” because of [he didn't say dubious] pending charges against him.
Along the way Kroft said, “People in the United States think” you’re a “traitor” and, “There’s a feeling within the community [the corporate media] that you’re not one of them.”
I’m a “people in the United States” and I don’t think Assange is a traitor but then again, my head isn’t stuck in the toilet of DC power politics, protecting the 200-some families who rule the world.
Assange isn’t a member of the corporate media suck-up-to-power club? That’s the biggest complement anyone could pay him. You go guy!
Aaaaaahhh! More later but suffice it to say, Julian Assange will be remembered as a journalist but Steve Kroft won’t be.
Oh, and BTW, per the wingnutOsphere, this is the liberalist of the liberal media we’re talking about here.
