QUIZ TIME! In what year did the following UK media story appear?

"Informal discussions have already taken place between US and Swedish officials over the possibility of the WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange being delivered into American custody, according to diplomatic sources."
Every single MSM journalist who has reported on the #ASSANGE case for 9 years - especially @guardian hacks - has stuck to the same ridiculous format:

"This has nothing to do with USA. Those poor women. He hates cats. Lives at risk."

Absolute bullshit.
Every single MSM journalist who has reported on the #ASSANGE case for 9 years has deliberately ignored critical facts.

Numero Uno: @Stratfor knew there was a sealed US indictment.

How about this long-forgotten 2012 Stratfor info gem from @business? https://www.businessinsider.com.au/stratfor-on-assange-bankrupt-the-a-ruin-his-life-give-him-7-12-for-conspiracy-2012-2
Stratfor knew about that sealed US indictment in early 2011 but it took a year for #Anonymous hackers to expose them.

Jeremy Hammond is still in jail - see @FreeJeremyNet. He should be freed and compensated and hailed as a hero! https://wikileaks.org/Stratfor-Emails-US-Has-Issued.html
Stratfor executive Fred Burton used to work in the US State Department's counter-terror division.

In early 2011 he said a US Grand Jury had already issued a sealed indictment for Assange:

"Not for Pub -- We have a sealed indictment on Assange. Pls protect."

MSM protected!!!
Burton in 2011:

"Assange is going to make a nice bride in prison. Screw the terrorist. He'll be eating cat food forever."

After Assange was released from Wandsworth on bail, Burton told SkyNews that extradition to the USA was "more and more likely".

Media then forgot him.
Burton somehow correctly predicted USA would treat Assange like a terrorist:

"Pile on. Move him from country to country to face various charges... seize everything he and his family own, to include every person linked to Wiki."

Again, media ignored it.
Burton's 2011 strategy:

"Bankrupt the arsehole... Ruin his life. Give him 7-12 yrs for conspiracy."

Months later the USA froze @wikileaks bank accounts. Julian Assange is now facing 175 years in a US jail.

The media knew. All this time. And played dumb.

3 days before Manning arrived at Quantico, Burton told his CEO:

“We probably asked ASIS to monitor Wiki comms... The delay could be figuring out how to declassify & use the Aussie intel on Wiki... [Assange] is a peacenik. He needs his head dunked in a full toilet bowl at Gitmo.”
Every MSM journalist who has reported on the #ASSANGE case for 9 years has deliberately ignored critical facts.

Number Two:

In 2016 the United Nations Working Party on Arbitrary Detention ruled that Julian Assange was unlawfully detained by Britain. https://ohchr.org/EN/NewsEvents/ 
UK govt ignored the UN ruling even though they were part of the process, which reinforced the considered ruling by Ecuador to grant asylum.

So the MSM reported that the UK govt said the ruling was nonsense, and the media never mentioned it again.

International law? Pfft!
Every MSM journalist who has reported on the #ASSANGE case for 9 years has deliberately ignored critical facts.

Number 3:

UK Crown Prosecutors told Sweden not to come question Assange in London; said this was not a normal case; said don't get cold feet; then destroyed emails!
And we only know about THAT thanks to Italian journalist @SMaurizi because nearly every other journo on the planet has run as far away from the Assange case as possible.

Gutless, useless, worthless toads of the Establishment the bloody lot of them. Now exposed forever more.
And nearly all the information in this thread is plucked from yet another great article by the great journalist @johnpilger who has been vilified and ignored by nearly everyone in the MSM for his entire career. https://independentaustralia.net/life/life-display/john-pilger-journalism-and-the-assange-effect,13352
And while the media pretended not to know all these critical facts, and while journalists around the world deliberately omitted them from their rubbish stories for NINE YEARS, all of us on Twitter knew the truth, and kept screaming the truth, and were deliberately ignored too.
We are living in very dark times. Julian is not just the canary in the coal mine any more. He alerted us all to the danger and they silenced him. The danger remains and grows steadily worse. These evil psychopaths will happily kill Julian and the rest of us as well.
Imagine you wake up tomorrow to global headlines:

"Julian Assange Found Dead After Apparent Jail Suicide".

Would you believe them?

Why would any of us believe ANYTHING these bastards write ever again? The media is dead.
