  • Gotterdammerung for Julian Assange?
  • Julian Assange: America Hater | National Review — This article from 2012 shows how the perception of Assange has evolved over the years.
  • Julian Assange Is Not a Journalist — The arrest of Julian Assange has predictably brought forth a torrent of overwrought, misguided, and sometimes downright ridiculous commentary. Even after years of exposure to his anti-Americanism, his anti-Semitism, and his raw personal corruption, people still seem to believe he performed some kind of service.
  • Judge Andrew Napolitano: ‘Julian Assange is a hero’ — Judge Andrew Napolitano called Julian Assange a “hero” after the WikiLeaks founder was arrested by British police Thursday moments after Ecuador withdrew his asylum for “repeatedly violating international conventions and protocol.”
  • Jill Stein: 'No question' Julian Assange is a hero - CNNPolitics — Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein hailed Julian Assange as a hero Saturday, saying the WikiLeaks founder's disclosure of Democratic National Committee emails exposed the American electorate to important information.
  • Julian Assange: journalistic hero or enemy agent? - WikiLeaks — Even so, claim his supporters, his expulsion and arrest was a grave assault on press freedom. Others think it a long-overdue reckoning with justice for a man who had unleashed information anarchy upon the West, culminating in the destabilisation of American democracy.
