Video Published on Nov 5, 2016 || Whistleblower Julian Assange has given one of his most incendiary interviews ever in a John Pilger Special, courtesy of Dartmouth Films, in which he summarizes what can be gleaned from the tens of thousands of Clinton emails released by WikiLeaks this year.
[Editor's Note: I know many people are not fond of Assange. He has become a polarizing figure in US media but when analysts can't trust that media we have to look to whistleblowers and often go back over something we may have missed. There's no map for this place.
I go to other cartographers like John Pigler. His reputation is impeccable and he's a journalist I hold in high regard. I share this in the spirit of understanding how we got here, what Wikileaks does and does not do, and the high price that Assange has had to pay for revealing unpleasant truths about elected officials. Keep in mind there are thousands more emails still to be released. Rest assured there will be more revelations. It is essential to be discerning rather than reactive. Information helps us understand how the world IS so we can make conscious decisions about where we're headed. Acting on what isn't true is how propaganda works. That is its purpose. When corporate media can't be trusted, and our newly elected president can't be bothered to brief anyone outside of a 40 character Tweet -- we absolutely need to rely on instincts and use our good sense. Welcome to the adult table. Inconvenient truths will be served. Reassuring lies are out of stock. We should welcome that. ~ G]
