Andrew Cockburn joined Scott on Antiwar Radio to talk about Julian Assange. Cockburn wrote an article for Harper’s Magazine about the hypocrisy of mainstream journalists in their refusal to stand up for the condemned publisher of government secrets. After a quick rundown of who Assange is, why he’s important and where he is now, Cockburn and Scott discuss that Harper’s article.
Discussed on the show:
- “Alternative Facts: How the media failed Julian Assange” (Harper’s Magazine)
- “An open letter from editors and publishers: Publishing is not a Crime” (The Guardian)
- “Inside the CIA’s secret war plans against WikiLeaks” (Yahoo News)
- Scott’s interview with Jeffery Carr about the DNC hack
