Amy Goodman Julian Assange Gor Bleedin' Blimey

Not the discussion between Julian Assange and Slavoj Zizek, but rather something that was mentioned that I was previously unaware of.

Now there is nobody more aware than I that America is the land of hypocrisy, but to hear Judith Miller, Judith fucking Miller, Judith, I'm Scooter Libby's personal cocksucking hack, Miller, come out with the statement she did, well fuck me! I just don't know what to say.

Talking on Fox News Watch about Wikileaks and Julian Assange, she had this to say about “the new journalism.”

“Yes. It’s part of the new journalism and everybody has to get used to it. If you have that much information, much of which is overclassified — if the location of the wastebasket in an office is classified — someone’s going to leak it. Julian Assange may be a bad journalist, but he is a journalist.”

When asked why Assange was a bad journalist, she said, “because he didn’t care at all about attempting to verify the information that he was putting out, or determine whether or not it would hurt anyone.”
And just when you think it couldn't get any worse, listen to what Fox News hack, Jon Scott, has to say at the end of the clip. Fuck me! you couldn't make it up. Where's me razor blades and electric fire? I think I'll go for a bath.

''We are always on the lookout here for biassed reporting, you can help, if you find evidence of media bias, email us, News Watch at Fox News dot com.''

Unavailable in the UK, probably due to copyright.

It's not because we can't access the Daily Show, the opposite in fact. We can watch the complete show on Channel 4 online, who, one has to assume, hold the copyright.

Thanks anyway.
