First off, S & F for posting this remarkable video.
As for the film itself, it was obviously produced shortly before his having surrendered himself to the U.K. police. It seems to present a fairly
objective view of WL's history. I was somewhat bothered by the fact that the filmmaker (presumably WL) seemed to underscore the "leaked" Assange
email conversation with it's seemingly ominous last line. Personally I took it to be one friend warning another that there was some dissention in
the ranks and that it was included in the film by one or the other of the two parties to the conversation.
Is there something "fishy" about all this? Perhaps so, but it is also possibly our perception of events that is triggering our olfactory sensors.
Everything we have seen of Julian Assange since he emerged as the "face" of WL has been a carefully controlled image of a brilliant, witty,
idealistic young man with an idea for how to change the world and the means to accomplish his goals. My personal belief is that Assange himself is
planning at least 3 moves ahead like a chess master.
Too much press? If my theory is correct we are dealing with a media master. A publisher of note at the spearhead of the new information technology.
In fact it almost seems that as the frequency and ferocity of the mainstream media attacks against Assange and/or WL increases, the more credibility
migrates toward internet sources away from traditional news sources. Credibility is the absolute international reserve currency of the media, thus
the "balance of trade" in information is swinging toward the internet
But thats for another thread.....LOL Again, thanks for posting!
