The American public might be forced to begin to conduct their own information due diligence. The media relays information and the public consumes. When there’s commentary, it’s often skewed, and when there’s no commentary and analysis skewed and uninformed conclusions form. Both are dangerous.
In this era of politics, amid a crumbling of the post World War Two world order – the first amendment of the US Constitution and the media’s role in society are rightfully under a microscope. Because they’re paramount to how and when a people digest critical information.
Julian Assange was interviewed by a major news agency and gave his assurance that Russia or proxy agents were not the source of the leaked DNC emails he received. However, when Assange began his Wikileaks quest, he touted its brilliance based on its anonymity. He designed a system that did not discriminate the sender. That being, Assange, on the receiving end, simply reviewed the information. So, how can he know one way or the other?
Assange is not a trained analyst, spy, operative or technological PhD. He’s an anarchist hacker. He lives in a single room on time out in the Ecuadorian embassy.
According to the recent Wikileaks documentary – Assange was rightfully accused of refusing to wear a condom, forcing himself onto women, and therefore, raping women. Assange’s own lawyer indicated his likely guilt. Assange, however, blamed the CIA – revealing his naïveté. That ordeal landed him in the embassy turned gilded prison where he currently resides. I imagine the local pizza delivery man knows him well.
This man isn’t an American. He never has been and never will be an American. He has no incentive to do anything except disrupt our politics to elevate his global status. He has done harm to national security and is an enemy of the state.
