People OK With Murdering Assange: The Website


Mike Bell and Alfred MacDonald set up a flash site that scrolls through the various media personalities who have casually called for a journalist’s death. Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks has been dehumanized by rabid knee jerks with a bullhorn. Now there’s a site documenting their canned condemnations.

Like we’ve said before, if your name has ever been a byline – if you’ve ever reported something that caused ripples – if you’ve ever been threatened or intimidated as a journalist – even if you’ve just been grateful “someone looked into it” – then this case should make your stomach flip. These myopic sqawkers in wide syndication are one of the many reasons this profession needs the constitutional protections of the First Amendment.

And now it’s documented.
