1/24/20 Nozomi Hayase on Glenn Greenwald and the ‘Assange Precedent’

by | Jan 26, 2020 | The Scott Horton Show

Scott talks to Nozomi Hayase about the movement to prosecute Glenn Greenwald for cybercrimes in Brazil. Greenwald is accused of helping to steal confidential text messages, as opposed to simply publishing information that had been hacked by someone else. This is exactly the same accusation being leveled against Julian Assange, says Hayase, but is really just a flimsy pretext for going after journalists that are trying to expose state malfeasance. Scott and Hayase are perplexed as to why mainstream American journalists seem to be so quick to indict people like Assange and Greenwald, apparently not understanding that they are guilty of the very same things.
