Interview With Black Tower Radio: WikiLeaks Vs. The Mainstream Media

Posted in Archive, Journalism, and MintPress News

WikiLeaks’ founder Julian Assange has spent the last 4 years living on asylum in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, but he’s continued to oversee the release of major leaks, including the release of thousands of Democratic National Committee emails. Attacks on Assange and WikiLeaks’ credibility from politicians and the media have also continued unabated.

On Wednesday, I appeared on Black Tower Radio where I discussed my recent coverage of WikiLeaks and Assange, including accusations that WikiLeaks released private information that endangered private citizens in Turkey and Saudi Arabia, and my analysis for MintPress News of an interview in which interim DNC chair Donna Brazile called Assange a “criminal.”

As of now, I’ll be appearing on Black Tower Radio on the first Wednesday of every month. Tune in!
