I wouldn't have thought that any mass media reporters would have the temerity to continue the public smear campaign against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange after it became clear to everyone that he was the subject of a brutal Trump administration prosecution aimed at criminalizing inconvenient journalism. But if there was going to be anyone to take up that flag, it would be the odious James Ball.
It can never be over-emphasized that the attack on Julian is also an attack on #Principle7Nuremberg and legal maxim established as the result of WW2. Soldiers must NEVER. *NEVER* collude to keep military atrocities hidden. The attack on this foundational lesson destroys the standard that was set by the loss of tens of millions of lives from 1939 to 1945. Only betrayers of justice are out to depersonalize and discredit Julian.

I tried to send funds via PayPal, but it would not go through. I already have a bank account linked to PayPal but it said "something went wrong" and would not let me send anything. If you have an email address you use for paypal, please let me know and I will send it that way. Or email me: email@example.com so I have your info. Please also see my comment below. Thanks, John
Thanks so much, Caitlin. I suggest that you do Marci Wheeler next : ) I have tried debunking her horseshit about Assange on twitter, but pretty sure she has me muted after we had one exchange in which I called her a cowardly sadistic presstitute and lapdog of empire... or some other term of endearment : ) Sorry, not sorry! Her comeback was lame, but she is a coward with a lot of influence who needs a verbal evisceration of the type you are so adept at. She is also smearing Glenn Greenwald on the regular. Keep up the good work! Will be contributing shortly... despite our small disagreements over what constitutes the left. You are a treasure.
Absolutely Brilliant piece Caitlin. Thank you <3
People (and all their friends) should write "shocked" / "horrified" / "disgusted" letters of complaint directly to the editors / management of the media that employ these insidious capitalist-arse-kissers. I know their "superiors" are far worse than they are - but the letters might just make them think they should perhaps employ a lackey who is somehow less objectionable to the bafflingly non-compliant readers who have written in ... and if they happen to have a small personal dislike for the grovelling turd we might help it to grow into a bigger personal dislike.
One could even write to the media's competitors and encourage and/or implore them to criticise / condemn the "low tone" of such "gutter" hacks.
Oh well ... just a thought.
DJT still has up to nine days (maybe) to pardon Julian Assange. Then in coming US President Rhabid Risen will have 1461 days to not pardon Julian Assange.
