April of 2023 marked the 4-year anniversary of the imprisonment of Julian Assange in Belmarsh, in a maximum security prison in London, which the BBC has called “Britain’s Guantanamo Bay”.

(The alleged sexual assault charges were dropped long ago).
So Greenwald devoted his entire April 14 2023 episode of System Update to the persecution, prosecution, and potential execution of Julian Assange of Wikileaks.
Worth a watch:
Also, in the above episode, as well as his previous episode below, Greenwald compares the plight of Julian Assange (and Daniel Ellsberg and Edward Snowden, just to name a few) with that of the new whistleblower Jack Teixeira, who leaked documents exposing the US government’s lies concerning the war in Ukraine, in the process expressing his total astonishment that this leaker was tracked down and turned over to the FBI by the mainstream media!
As I’ve often said: the press wasn’t given constitutional protection so they could conspire with the government…
