The media blackout on Julian Assange’s imprisonment – independentaustralia

The same media that has spent years dragging Assange’s name through the mud is now engaging in a blackout on his treatment.If you are waiting for corporate media pundits to defend freedom of the press, you’re going to be disappointed.The role of journalism in a democracy is publishing information that holds the powerful to account — the kind of information that empowers the public to become more engaged citizens in their communities so that we can vote in representatives that work in the interest of “we the people.”
