My fave Strayan speaks truth about Assange's major journalistic cred

    One of the bonehead attacks on Assange is that he isn't a journalist.

    Caitlin Johnstone begs to differ!

    The US Government Won’t Care About Your Definition Of Journalism After The Assange Precedent Is Set – Caitlin Johnstone


    As Glenn Greenwald has pointed out on Twitter, the indictment describes an activity that all investigative journalists partake in all the time. A source offers you some docs and you see a gap that needs to be filled, you will ask them to get them for you. A source fears they will be found out and you do what you can to hide their identity. That’s journalism at its most raw and dangerous and important. Check out the film Spotlight to see a fairly true version of what the journalists at the Boston Globe had to do in order to expose the pedophile ring of the Catholic Church. These high level crimes must be exposed for people’s safety, but the higher the level the crime, the more risk there is in its exposure.

    Caitlin Johnstone is another great journalist, a woman who tells it like it is.

    The message is loud an clear. If you expose any of our criminal activities we will come for you by whatever means necessary. The people that think this affair is NOT against the freedom of the press/expression are just dodging the issue imo and are doing so to extricate themselves from the task of having to face the reality of what is done in their name
