Julian Assange and John Perry Barlow in joint interview on NSA Prism leaks: "Snowden is a hero"

In this Sky News television interview with EFF co-founder John Perry Barlow, Julian Assange of Wikileaks describes Prism Leaker Edward Snowden as "a Hero."


  1. With respect to Mr. Snowden, I don’t know that Julian Assange’s seal of approval is going to help his image with John and jane Q. Public.

    1. JPB recently described what Assange is allegedly guilty of as “ungentlemanly conduct” so I’m not entirely sure he’s someone that particularly cares about every opinion of J. Q. Public.

      1. In other words, it appears that JPB doesn’t think Assange raped anyone, correct?

        Or are you insinuating that JPB may be pro-sexual assault or something?  I hope you clarify yourself, because I think your post is kind of vague in this regard.

          1. Trial and conviction?  Those were the good, old days.  Many seem to skip all that “paperwork”.  Why have trials when everyone can just assume guilt of others?

    2. Depends on which people you talk to, I suppose.  The ones that think people are guilty until proven innocent or others that use a little more critical thinking than that.

      A 24-country poll found that most people believe WikiLeaks co-founder Julian Assange is not a criminal:


      Most Australians back Assange, poll finds:


      Maybe most people don’t dislike Assange as much as you’d like them to?

  2. I was hoping when Assange was asked if he had any advice about getting asylum, that he’d say something like “Find an embassy that’s an actual house rather than a few offices.”

  3. I can’t wait to see the Snowden smears. How are they going to top Julian-Assange be Teh Rapebot 5000!
