Press Misinforms As Usual About Wikileaks

What could be a better example than the lame mainstream press going after Julian Assange, the editor-in-chief of Wikileaks, who has released thousands of whistleblowing documents that show years of poor performance of the mainstream media in full public view.

Typing "Julian Assange" in Google News search, you'll find a section with over 10,000 articles by the mainstream media misleading, disinforming, or attacking Julian Assange with Washington Post leading the way in "What the Assange case reveals about rape in America."

Further down, you'll find the section that supports Wikileaks with only about 250 articles crawled by Google bot with the leading article entitled, "How The Press Misleads About Wikileaks".

How could anyone seriously believe that the news coverage nowadays is unbiased or fair?

WikiLeaks started out as a small operation for leaked secret documents has turned into an international grass roots movement to fight for freedom of the press and for maintaining Internet freedom. What Wikileaks - one small outfit - did is the exact job that had been expected of the giant corporation of the mainstream media!!!
