Not suitable for the general public; off with his head!

GUEST: Ann Garrison, prizewinning journalist for the Black Agenda Report, talks about the "New McCarthyism," Bill Clinton's privatization and austerity, and the need to defend Julian Assange.

Strange Days Indeed - on Julian Assange

I thought this was an interesting discussion about Assange, although at times we got bogged down in the facts of his case.

The vilification of Assange goes to the heart of the empire. Both of our corrupted political parties hate him for exposing their venal stupidity. The weapons makers see him as an inconvenient impediment to making billions on new wars. And the nation's media shows itself to be the pathetic cheerleader of America's war crimes abroad. Assange makes the system look bad. In fact, he shows us exactly how brutal and corrupt our nation has become. Not suitable for the general public; off with his head!
