“The Guardian’s Vilification of Julian Assange

“The Guardian did not make a mistake in vilifying Assange without a shred of evidence. It did what it is designed to do”

 

Yes, indeed, this is what the contemporary Guardian does.

It is a hate sheet posing as a newspaper. And its hate is always focussed on opponents of the American empire. It is a closet neocon publication, trying to keep its old liberal, labor-oriented appearance with truckloads of flouncy, feel-good stuff of absolutely no depth about minorities and the gay community and women.
