What a happy combination, Cohen & Luce, on defining ‘leftist’ from an utterly corrupted, but self-congratulatory, ‘Liberal’ perspective. Assange and WikiLeaks just didn’t redefine Journalism, they simply practiced Journalism in an age of Corporately owned News sources. And their hirelings, like Cohen & Luce, who manufacture the respectable bourgeois Party Line. Finley Peter Dunne describes what Journalism is:
“Th newspaper does ivrything f’r us. It runs th’ polis foorce an’ th’ banks, commands th’ milishy, controls th’ ligislachure, baptizes th’ young, marries th’ foolish, comforts th’ afflicted, afflicts th’ comfortable, buries th’ dead an’ roasts thim aftherward”.
