  • I was binge watching Trevor Noah videos up until this disgusting video showed up. Making fun of the Assange. Try being locked in for 7 years and then be sane. Assange is a hero. He went against American power ups to show their ugly face to the world. God bless to comment section. Made me have faith in humanity again. Shame on you, Noah. A third class comedian.

  • Okay. Trevor has officially become TPTB court jester, he's playing his role well in downplaying the weight of oppreasive nature set upon Assange and the civil liberties and righta he's fighting for on our behalf. And here he is being ridiculed and his situation belittled. Congratulations Trevor, ypu went from hero to zero just like that.

  • OK everybody, I'm walking the walk! Here are a few addys & ph#s I am using to do what I can about this mess. I OWE it to Bill Binney, Thomas Drake, the guy that turned in photos of the pile of naked Iraqi men at Abu Ghraib, Julian Assange, Ed Snowden the political prisoner in Puerto Rico, who has been incarcerated for longer than anyone else in the world, Chelsea Manning, and all the others who suffer now and the countless others who have gone before. I don't want to be one of the many f-ers who have dropped Assange like a warm dog t__d. I'm DOING something! I'll make waves if nothing else. Not wanting to be Stephen Colbert's next Alex Jones, but I copied & pasted the info here. - I'll see if it sticks on the wall or not. ... I wonder if Amy Goodman will say something - if she doesn't already know. She has my utmost respect when it comes to journalistic integrity... she wouldn't ignore this. ----------------- Comedy Central 212-767-8600 (For those of you out of the country, please add a 1 first.) 345, Hudson Street, New York City, NY USA 10019 ---------------------------------------------- Viacom's contact us page: htt ps www .viacom com contact-us ---------------------------------------------- w w w david paul meyer com - - htt ps twitter dpmeyer (no spaces) David Paul Meyer (@ dpmeyer).

I would take a bullet for Assange, one of Australia's top ten people of all time; Australia's Sydney Morning Herald I think it was. And for you sickening brown-nosers down there (all three of you), he still makes a LOT of money doing his shows, so don't cry too hard for your lil hero. HE wasn't shot to death in Iraq - it shows.

This is a PHUCKING travesty. I didn't subscribe to hear Hannity! It's been 2 months now - anyone see him apologize yet? I haven't. If he does it here - I won't be seeing it. We Progressives watched TDS with Jon Stewart*. We and most rethugnicans adore Mr. Assange. Please don't let this kid think he's respectable anymore! When TN apologizes I'll take his coco's picture out of the bottom of my bird's cage. JON WE MISS YOU!

    • You're taking the women's lib thing a tad too far Pamela. You can go straight to hell. - He didn't RAPE anyone. He had consensual sex with two women at the same time (jealous?), who happened to be WORKING in the same place they pick up their paychecks. His intelligent use of a condom couldn't prevent the damned thing from breaking. Sweden wanted his ass because they would have been favoured by turning him over to the Feds in the US. He 'hid' somewhere? I guess you don't mind two Reuters Journalists, 6 unarmed men walking toward their offices, and two CHILDREN being shot, I guess. Go take a show - you stink BAD. Skank

And after all - I thought you were black...?!? Are there really black - american(?) Nazi's out there (and this is not mean't bad --- I'm asking as a German) !?? Jokes besides - ever thought of your Karma ? But all in all - you seem to like living in hell...☆ - wish you much fun and think of me when seeing a KZ - your way and opinion ended once there and will do it again ! Think about - there's still place for some hope, but not for creepeling jokes....!!! Nice Grtz to the Other's !!!!

  • It takes more than publishing any leaked document that comes your way to be a journalist. There are standards and integrity to uphold especially when publishing sensative information. Assange has few of those. He's a publisher not a journalist. He's callous in his handling of power. Also, he doesn't seem to care if the leaked documents are passed to him by intelligence services that are adversarial to the people they effect. We probably should be debating if publishers who put 0 effort and minimal integrity into their process should also get the same exemption privileges as journalists rather than whether or not being anti Assange is being anti journalism or anti whistle blower. But comments section be what it is. So instead we get "how dare you Trevor! ENEMY of freedom!"
