a pretty aggressive new move by the justice department a big deal here for a 1st amendment advocates the government is now trying to assert this brand new right to criminally prosecute people for publishing secret stuff and newspapers and magazines and investigative journalists and all sorts of different entities publish secret stuff all the time that is the bread and butter of what we do with the new indictment of us on the government is advancing a legal argument that places such an important work in jeopardy the administration has gone from denigrating journalists as enemies of the people to now criminalizing common practices in journalism notice anything not a lot about a songes work or fate but quite a bit about there's this is the prosy of the mainstream media here in the united states just a couple of weeks ago the washington post editorial board ran an editorial saying that julian was not a journalist well guess what the washington post one pulitzer prizes you'll using the information that julian and we keep leaks published so you don't. i think that

mainstream media is absolutely hypocritical you know they spent these last several years criticizing critiquing damning stands for constantly continuously all of a sudden now they've woken up and pretended to be so upset about the 17 charges of espionage they do feel threatened now it has nothing to do with freedom of press freedom of speech they feel threatened because they do the same thing to the songes done every day of the week it's just called national security reporting and so now all of a sudden sitting closer to home and they're pretending to be more concerned about it. term mind you here are some of the biggest revelations made over the years back in 2010 thousands of documents and classified video related to the wars in iraq and afghanistan were made public that leak detailed among other things the indiscriminate shooting civilians in iraq a year later the so-called good to move files revealed routine torture in kuantan a move on the deaths of inmates from harsh treatment and in
