@rj_gallagher Counterpoint: Bob Woodward stated publicly he would have advised me to remain in place and act as a mole. This charge is a trifling allegation, one I suspect primarily sounds less legitimate to many (though perhaps not you) because it involved a keyboard instead of a notepad.

The weakness of the US charge against Assange is shocking. The allegation he tried (and failed?) to help crack a password during their world-famous reporting has been public for nearly a decade: it is the count Obama's DOJ refused to charge, saying it endangered journalism. https://t.co/xdTQ8xauB0

@jandrade @Asher_WolfShe could want me dead and it wouldn't matter. I mean no disrepect, but she can be the worst person in the world and still be in the right place at the right time to see something of public importance. If we can't accept that, how can we ever have access to all of the facts?

@Asher_Wolf Judge the video, not the person holding the camera. If we can't recognize that even journalists we have disagreements with are still journalists, we can't have a free press.

@rj_gallagher I have far too much respect for your work to believe for even a moment you believe this is in any way representative of the way bail cases are handled. I strongly disagree with representing the political as procedural.

Images of Ecuador's ambassador inviting the UK's secret police into the embassy to drag a publisher of--like it or not--award-winning journalism out of the building are going to end up in the history books.

Businesses that make money by collecting and selling detailed records of private lives were once plainly described as "surveillance companies." Their rebranding as "social media" is the most successful deception since the Department of War became the Department of Defense.
