Watching Bill Maher doing a rather interesting interview of

Julian Assange. Maher has no ax to grind with Assange except he wasn't going to put up with Assange talking bullshit about what was actually in the hacked DNC emails and Assange's obvious hatred of Hillary. Bill asked Assange to hack into Trumps tax returns!

Was fair to President Obama either, Snowden delivered his crap trying to discredit Obama, like reading the rags, don't believe anything this bunch says. If they were interested in blowing whistles they would blow whistles equally, it is about destroying reputations. It will not get their candidates elected.

Assange is quite an asshole. It was obvious that his email leak didn't work out quite as he had hoped it would (i.e. destroy Hillary)

Between Assange and Snowden. Snowden was all about privacy and concerned that the public didn't know their privacy was compromised. Assange is about "transparency"--if you believe him. He wants the info he gets put out there regardless of whose privacy rights may be violated.

Snowden was also very careful and got help determining exactly what to release and what not to release. Assange dumps everything.

Etc
