Julian Assange Gets A TV Show!

Thu Jan 26, 2012 3:37 am

Russia Today is going to host (WikiLeak) Julian Assange's new talk show.
Russia Today is a Russian English language satalite/cable broadcast around the world. By the way, it is the second most viewed foreign channel in the U.S. after the BBC.

I've watched some of Russia Today's videos on YouTube and I rather liked them. They're honest and unafraid to take on certain taboo subjects that the more mainstream media won't touch or won't cover objectively.

I predict Julian Assange's new program will be called "WikiPeeks".

Although to clarify it's the second most watched foreign NEWS channel in the US. Probably exceeded by BBC America plus a few Latin channels.

Seems to me by doing this Assange has rather punctured his claims that Wikileaks was just about public service and basically admitted he is just desperate for fame.
