Two journalists on the bad side of Donald Trump were vindicated this week. One had his White House credentials restored. Another got proof that Uncle Sam wants him behind bars. Guess which one had all the support from the MSM.
—> Jim Acosta: I have a first amendment right to do whatever the hell I want.
—> Julian Assange: The DOJ is about to lock me up for my reporting.

Funny how the media has been outraged over Washington Post’s Jamal Khashoggi for the past several weeks, and CNN’s Jim Acosta as of late, but can’t seem to be bothered about Julian Assange – who only published truthful information.
So much for “freedom of the press”. https://t.co/dHwn1c3YKN

The corporate media has rightly come to the rescue of Jim Acosta…but the same outlets will say NOTHING about the totally fabricated attack on Julian Assange—this is nothing but the government silencing a critically important journalist https://t.co/1KbJYBMgiv

Just a reminder that whatever else you might think about him, Assange is responsible for some of the most momentous stories in recent history, yet the people who piously rush to defend the likes of Jim Acosta will have nothing to say about this potential *criminal prosecution*

I'm sure the same media that rallied behind the heckler and loudmouth Jim Acosta will throw their support behind Julian Assange today.
Don't hold your breath.

While CNN and Jim Acosta argued that their First Amendment rights have been violated Julian Assange remains in protective custody locked in the Ecuadorian embassy in the United Kingdom because he cannot receive safe passage out of the country

How long before Trump invokes defenses of Acosta to kind-of-but-not-explicitly defend Assange?
