So, we're supposed to excuse the newspapers for their transgressions, but they can accuse someone else of doing the same thing even thought they're NOT doing the same thing at all?  It's absurd.  But it's what's happening.  Keep reading.

The email came, appropriately enough, as Dr. Paul and I were preparing for today's Liberty Report on the new Senate bill targeting Wikileaks. It was from Wikileaks founder and chief editor Julian Assange's associates letting us know that he has agreed to kick off our Whistleblowers Roundtable at next month's conference!

Mr. Assange is rightfully concerned about new legislation already passed out of the Senate Intelligence Committee that specifically names Wikileaks and its senior leadership as a "hostile non-state intelligence service" which coordinates with foreign state intelligence agencies. It is a patently absurd attack on the First Amendment, as Wikileaks is clearly a publisher not an intelligence agency. What about the Washington Post and the New York Times, which also publish classified material leaked by whistleblowers? Perhaps the Senate attack on Wikileaks is supposed to quiet what little stomach they have for exposing the misdeeds of those we elect and pay to represent us.

A government which robs Peter to
pay Paul can always depend on
the support of Paul.
