I looked at the linked article and there nothing I can see on Julian Assange. They also mention in it that in the USA “no Journalists are in jail”.
Ok here is where I have a problem with the report.
Journalists are listed as being imprisoned in a number of Countries from Egypt to Turkey and from China to Myanmar. Most of these in prison for “anti-government” activities.
I am going to suggest that if one has a media that is supportive of the Government and its policies and that acts merely as stenographers and salespeople to promote Government Policy , which is EXACTLY what the Corporate Press in the USA is, there are going to be less of them imprisoned.
The Corporate media in the USA and in much of the Western World is doing what it sees as ITS job and that reporting on what the Corporations that own the Government want them to report on. If these so called Journalists in the Western Media had the courage likes those Journalists in China and Egypt , many of them would end up behind bars , running their cars into trees , or committing suicide by shooting themselves in the head twice.
