WikiLeaks vs News Ltd: Jail Murdoch, not Assange!

Ash Pemberton

When it comes to comparing the cases of two publishers of secret information
— WikiLeaks editor-in-chief Julian Assange and billionaire media mogul
Rupert Murdoch — the hypocrisy from politicians and media is huge.

The key difference between the two is obvious — one seeks to challenge the
establishment, the other exerts huge control over it.


“Disobedience, in the eyes of anyone who has read history, is humanity’s
original virtue. It is through disobedience that progress has been made,
through disobedience and through rebellion.” — Oscar Wilde, Soul of Man
Under Socialism

“The free market is perfectly natural... do you think I am some kind of
dummy?” — Jarvis Cocker
