Be assured, I have no particular respect for Assange. But, I agree 100%.Our founding fathers protected one, and only one profession, that of journalists. In the first amendment it states the importance of the freedom of the press. It is the job of investigative reporting to keep We the People informed. Assange is not a criminal, he is a hero. We need to demand the breakup of corporate ownership of our media. They promote their own interests such as the pharmaceuticals, Big Oil, or the MIC at the expense of reporting fully on news that impacts Americans. Truth tellers such as Julian Assange are international heroes. It is the Military Industrial Complex and all its modern guises such as "homeland INsecurity" who are the true terrorists. Speak up for the first amendment!
If he's leaking secrets, from we're does e get them?
