    Here's one misconception that I know of.... Assange is a journalist. No, he isn't.

    Why do you say that? These leaks are considerably more telling than any of the lies and frivolity you hear on CNN, MSNBC or FOX. He exposes the government's and military's questionable activities.

    Because it's a fact. I like facts. These leaks are based on information illegally obtained - stolen - from the US Government. Assange should be charged with espionage. He's a self publicist, an arrogant ego driven bastard.

    That reminds me of a similar dismissive answer my parents used to tell me when I was a child: Because I said so



    Even if he is an ego driven bastard, he's one who sticks his neck out to reveal how this government actually runs, in contrast to the endless spin millions Americans choke down with help from pundit shills on the boob tube.

    Why are you so concerned about Russia's corruption? Everybody knows that Russia's government has been corrupt for decades upon decades, however some folks are hoodwinked into believing that the United States government is not. Hence the usefulness of wikileaks to dispel that misconception.
