Assange Extradition Case, “Why’s MSM Largely Ignoring It?”, ANSWER SIMPLE: Assange destroyed their Russian DNC hack narrative, Knows who leaked

Hillary Clinton, the DNC, the deep state with the help of the Obama Administration and MSM created and perpetuated the narrative of the Russians hacking the DNC data and colluding with the Trump associates.
We now know that as a confirmed fact.
From the get go, Julian Assange stated that it was not the Russians.
And he knows.
Journalist Ellen Ratner met with him in 2016 and he allegedly told her it was an insider.
Ellen Ratner allegedly told Ed Butowsky it was Seth Rich.
From the first sentence in the article below:
“The silence of journalists in Britain and the US over the extradition proceedings against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is making them complicit in the criminalisation of newsgathering by the American government.”
The MSM has been and continues to be complicit in the “criminalisation of newsgathering .”

“The Assange Extradition Case is an Unprecedented Attack on Press Freedom, So Why’s the Media Largely Ignoring It?”
“Journalism is all about disclosing important news to people so they can judge what is happening in the world – and the actions of their government in particular. The WikiLeaks disclosures in 2010 only differed from other great journalistic scoops in that they were bigger – 251,287 diplomatic cables, more than 400,000 classified army reports from the Iraq War and 90,000 from the Afghan War – and they were more important. [Full disclosure: I gave a statement read out in court this week seeking to explain the significance of the Wikileaks revelations.]
Astonishingly, British and American commentators are in a state of denial when it comes to seeing that what happens to Assange could happen to them. They argue bizarrely that he is not a journalist, though the Trump administration implicitly accepts that he is one, since it is pursuing him for journalistic activities. The motive is openly political, one of the absurdities of the hearing being the pretence that Trump-appointed officials provide a reliable and objective guide to the threat to the US posed by the WikiLeaks revelations.
Why has the British media been so mute about the grim precedent being established for themselves, were they to investigate the doings of a US government that makes no secret of its hostility to critical journalism. Ten years ago, The New York Times, The Guardian, Le Monde, Der Spiegel, and El Pais published extracts from the WikiLeak documents on their front pages for days on end, but they long ago distanced themselves from its founder. Yet, however much they may wish the contrary, their future is wrapped up in his fate.”
