Andrew Bolt wages war against Wikileaks:
“…Russia is said to be authoritarian, and Iran is accused of smuggling arms to Hezbollah in ambulances, just as Israel always said. Moreover, Iran is described by French officials as a “fascist state”, and its Arab neighbours are said to be very scared.
Again, nothing new, but it all confirms the world is as menacing as the US grimly says. Indeed, this picture largely excuses the most damaging leak – that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ordered staff to spy on foreign diplomats in UN headquarters.
Overall, then, there is more in these leaks to confirm the US view of this world than there is to comfort its critics.
Which is one more reason to damn the witless Assange for so mindlessly hampering the US’s ability to resist the very dangers its cables describe.
This is the same journalist that went all frothy-at-the mouth over the stolen “Climategate” emails. It would seem Mr. Bolt only wants those documents that confirms his world view “leaked”.
Here is a journalist, who thrives on generating outrage and scandal, condemning whistle blowers.
The tradition of investigative jouranlism and the role of keeping those in power be damned.
Bolt would rather see corporations and conservative politicians protected from scrutiny.
Memo to internet: only tell Andrew Bolt what he want’s to hear. Please shut up about everything else!
