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

These countries have the audacity to criticize Russia for suppressing press freedoms. The irony is rich.
