Julian Assange News Links 24 February 2020

24 February 2020 • 21:00 — The New Dark Age

There may be some duplication due to cross-posting and may be updated throughout the day, so please check back

Note the BBC headlines below (and elsewhere of course); they invariably emphasise the negative aspects, negative for Assange of course. So,  ‘Julian Assange ‘put lives at risk’ by sharing unredacted files’; ‘Julian Assange: Trump ‘offered pardon for Russia denial’; or, ‘just the so-called facts,  ‘Julian Assange: What is extradition and how does it work?’. Then there’s the ‘personal’, ‘Julian Assange: Father fears ‘worried’ son’s extradition’. But the most striking thing about the BBC’s coverage is that there isn’t any to speak of! The stories above cover the period 7 February 2020 to today, just a handful, not even. And this is the BBC, allegedly the leading, most trusted, news organisation on the planet, famed for its objectivity, that it always presents all sides of a story. And I’m only dealing with the headlines! WB
