its almost funny watching the 'free press' turning their course as if they're one creature in their coverage of the assange 'problem'. they have discovered that 'our' government is running this particular farce in a manner that will be sure to cause them problems;
The indictment of Julian Assange under the Espionage Act has profoundly affected press coverage of the WikiLeaks founder, with much of the media turning suddenly and decisively in his favor after years of vilifying him.
The sharp change has also come from some politicians, and
significantly, from two Justice Department prosecutors who went public
to express their dissent about using the Espionage Act to indict Assange.
To the extent that public opinion matters, the sea-change in coverage could have an effect on the British or Swedish governments’ decision to extradite Assange to the United States to face the charges.........https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-05-27/tide-public-opinion-turning-assanges-favor
