Manufacturing Dissent Since 1996
New interviews throughout the week

How mainstream journalists created fake news from a Julian Assange interview.


I want to be honest, I appreciate the Guardian amending the article, but at the same time the damage is done and I'm not convinced it was a solution. It was done in really bad faith unfortunately, because the text was clear, my interview was clear and widely available in English, so there was no doubt about what Julian Assange had declared.

Italian journalist Stefania Maurizi explains how her recent interview with Julian Assange was distorted by the Guardian, Washington Post and across social media to manufacture a pro-Trump agenda from the Wikileaks founder, and reflects on the political realities faced by Assange under detention and his organization under attack by the establishment press.

Stefania's interview with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange was distorted by the Guardian's Ben Jacobs, as covered by Glenn Greenwald for the Intercept.
