I would call that Self Inflicted Character Assassination. His career is over.
There are those who believe they will thrive in the coming police state and NWO

This just goes to show that there is no such thing as real journalism anymore, when a reporter advocates the murder of a journalist's source... it must've really backfired for him though. I visited the contact page on his website, and both his twitter feed and email address have been removed.edit on 18-8-2013 by sine.nomine because: (no reason given)
Those of us who support aggressive government action to protect the public ought to acknowledge that it does, at the margins, limit individual rights — the rights of gun owners, the rights of business owners, the rights of the accused. Go ahead, quote the Ben Franklin line about those who would sacrifice some liberty for security deserving neither. But what about the rights of 8-year-old Martin Richard, blown away after watching his dad finish the marathon? Who safeguarded the liberty of 6-year-old Charlotte Bacon, gunned down in her classroom in her new pink dress? What about Perry Calvin and Morris Bridges and the other victims of the West Texas explosion? Nobody read them their rights....

Person of the Year 2009 - Ben Bernanke

A bald man with a gray beard and tired eyes is sitting in his oversize Washington office, talking about the economy. He doesn't have a commanding presence. He isn't a mesmerizing speaker. He has none of the look-at-me swagger or listen-to-me charisma so common among men with oversize Washington offices. His arguments aren't partisan or ideological; they're methodical, grounded in data and the latest academic literature. When he doesn't know something, he doesn't bluster or bluff. He's professorial, which makes sense, because he spent most of his career as a professor.

One thing I rally have trouble understanding in the Assange case is this
Assange has a website that is in the business of leaking reporting controversial information. Now there is a number of these wiki leaks type sites around and so his should of stood out as a website of Nsa interest, since we all are publically aware these are the sites that Nsa target in their surveillance.
Lets establish the context of Assange identity which is hes a business man, trying to make money by selling controversial whistleblower stories and is Not a US citizen. Assange has not ever worked in a military establishment and therefore has never taken any military security oaths.
Assange gets possession via Manning videos and information which show insights to the US foreign policy decisions and military operations.
I can understand why the US politicians and military are embarrassed by release of the information, but given the context of Assanges back ground just described what rights does the US government have to bring him into the US for questioning?

Once upon a time...in a reality FAR FAR FAR away....you couldn't necessarily TELL what personal politics a reporter believed or followed. Those were Journalists. We have Newstainment and Time Magazine is more like Mad Magazine these days than anything reporting news items.
It's not even worth reading in a medical waiting room. Literally. I'll pick up Cosmo before Time.
*added.. I say the above having been a subscriber to Time Magazine at one time, too... so it's really not knee jerk. They've just become that sloppy and unprofessional, IMO.
