John Pilger (leftist journalist ignored by MSM bar rebuke) on Julian Assange (the weirdo), Obama (the constitutional lawyer), Bleah (the sicophant), Sweden’s prosecutor (the wannabe legal in someone’s pocket) and media bullshit (the hegemonic hasbara).

“the US threat to Assange was a threat to all journalists, to freedom of speech, (it) was lost in the sordid and the ambitious.”

Saudi King’s French Riviera summer holiday sparks protests

Both reported elements of the petitions miss the point.

‘Jean-Noel Falcou, who had launched the petition, said, “We cannot accept that there is one law for the rich and powerful and one law for everyone else.”

More to the point!
