Hello friends, welcome to our latest Honest Government Ad. I was mid-way through writing an Aussie election episode when news broke of the US Government unsealing an indictment against Julian Assange. I wasn’t planning to make a video about this, but after seeing the sheer avalanche of bullshit that followed in the media, I just had to. Please make sure to read the Sources and Links I pasted in the video description. EDIT: Thanks to everyone who has translated the video! x Giordano

Ahaha!! The "leading democracies of the world" arrest Assange for telling the truth, and the majority of their journalists remain silent, how more hypocritical can it get?

The media is owned by private international bankers that keep you from hearing real news or seeing real journalism. The irony...
