What It Means For Journalism and Whistleblowers

Near 16th St. BART San Francisco, California

The US government has now exposed the fact that they have a criminal indictment against whistleblower and journalist Julian Assange who is the founder of Wikileaks. He has been a virtual captive in the Ecuadorian consulate in London for more than 5 years because of threats by the British May government to arrest him and transfer him to the US for prosecution. This recently exposed sealed indictment by the US government now threatens the rights of all journalists and whistleblowers including all newspapers, tv and radio stations.
This forum will focus on how the corporate media have both used the material from WikiLeaks and at the same time, the role of the left media.
