Juian Assange arrested in London. Whatever one thinks of the character (and his tweets...) everyone, especially journalists should feel concerned with what will happen to him next.
100% accuracy with authentic docs published. No source ever compromised. Lessons in data-driven journalism. Exposing war crimes... A model for journalism!
Now, extradition to the US? Indictiment for espionnage? A life in prison?
@jz No source compromised? Lessons in data-driven journalism?
Leaking documents about HIV/hepatitis status of innocent people ? 🤔
Publishing name of rape victime? 🤔
Outing of saudi gay people? 🤔
Good data journalism is filtering documents to avoid collateral damages, not raw publication with no filter at all…
Yeah, explain to RSF, the UN, and all those who awarded him journalism prizes that they are wrong. Teach them journalism maybe?
@jz being a sexual assaulter and a rapist have nothing to do with “the character”.
Stop making a hero of him.
@mathias All charges were dropped in Sweden after he got questioned (5y after when he offered many time to the prosecutor to come and/or to use video link, which SE judges often do.). Document yourself a bit before categorizing ppl pls.
He is now facing risk of life time in prison in the US for espionnage.
@jz yeah, everybody know that justice works, sexual assaulters and rapists never get away if they have really done it.
And just don't patronise me dickhead. You get down from your pedestal and learn how justice and society works.
I'm not saying that it's a good thing he'll face those charges, indeed all prisons should burn but in the meantime sexual assaulters and rapists needs to face real justice.
@jz Fuck Assange.
