Julian Assange is still scum — and Wikileaks didn’t elect Trump
It’s maddening to see some conservatives suddenly embracing WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange, whom they once rightly vilified for betraying US secrets.
Even President-elect Trump has joined in, promoting Assange’s credibility over that of US intelligence agencies.
In the process, they’re playing right into the hands of Democratic conspiracy theorists who maintain Russia “stole” the election for Trump.
Which is nonsense on stilts. Moscow may well have been behind the hacking of embarrassing Democratic National Committee e-mails — but the “dirt” was merely gossip fodder for insiders, at best a sideshow ignored by most voters.
That’s the point Trump and his supporters should be making — not wasting time defending Vladimir Putin’s reputation.
Shaw The dead media can't accept that with Wikileaks and Twitter the public doesn't need the media. They are almost obsolete and that NO One believes the media.
