Clinton, Assange and the war on truth

by John Pilger

“On 16 October, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation aired an interview with Hillary Clinton: one of many to promote her score-settling book about why she was not elected President of the United States. Wading through the Clinton book, What Happened, is an unpleasant experience, like a stomach upset. Smears and tears. Threats and enemies. ‘They’ (voters) were brainwashed and herded against her by the odious Donald Trump in cahoots with sinister Slavs sent from the great darkness known as Russia, assisted by an Australian ‘nihilist,’ Julian Assange. … Her political extremism and warmongering are of no consequence. Her problem, wrote Traister, was a ‘damaging infatuation with the email story.’ The truth, in other words.” (10/20/17)
