The Drive-by media won’t like his ‘weaponized text’ remarks… at ALL.
But speaking to the audience in Sydney — including supporters who were willing to yell their support during the live cross — Assange defended WikiLeaks as “a wonderful library you can trust” and a source of “original pristine information.”
“You’re not reading pre-weaponised knowledge,” he said of the organisations’ millions of documents. “When you read a newspaper article, you are reading weaponised text that is designed to affect a person just like you.
“I think that is the real beauty of WikiLeaks… it is that sea of information, that treasure, that intellectual treasure, that rebel library of Alexandria you can go into.”
…When asked about the accuracy of the released emails of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, Assange said, “We had lots of critics in the Democratic Party, liars in the Democratic Party… saying that what we published was not accurate — trying to imitate it, sometimes saying it directly. And of course we could mathematically prove that they were liars. And it’s not every day that you can mathematically prove that your critics are full of it.” — DailyMail
Weaponized text… designed to affect a person.
Isn’t that exactly what Trump was calling out when he called out CNN for their ‘Tone’?
You bet. But try telling Don Lemon…
Nope. Don Lemon can’t. Nor can the others.
