Asides

Would the ABC name alleged sexual assault victims in any other case?

It’s certainly true that sex assault claims against prominent people ought be dealt with very carefully by the media. But 4 Corners’ attempted demolition job on the rape charges against Assange in Sweden, including repeatedly naming his alleged victims, scaled the heights of hysteria and conspiracy theory.

  1. Hmmmm? Didn’t see naming of his alleged victims as excessive in that a timeline was being developed. Does it suggest a conspiracy? Given the Swedish judicial inconsistencies it certainly does. Given the previous history of Sweden in such matters, it certainly does.
    Q in their shoes: Would I as the US be trying to shut Assange and Wikkleaks down before more stuff surfaces — you better goddam believe it!

  2. John, you’re a conspiracy quack. Considered ‘The Greens’? You’d be perfect
