Press freedom is at risk if we allow Julian Assange's extradition

"What Manning and did cannot be construed as espionage. They were casting light on the US government’s murky secrets and, in the case of the collateral murder video, the lengths it was prepared to go in order to cover up a massacre. That’s journalism, pure and simple."

"The far-reaching implications of this case are hugely significant for the future of the journalistic trade"

We haven't read this yet but we consider it a bit rich (read: #late) for #theGuardian to go from dragging #JulianAssange through the mud over recent years to defending him.

Better late than never - but we will remember.
