My latest: A new Guardian statement denies evidence in court that it is a 'bad faith actor' in US efforts to extradite Julian Assange.
The paper's statement is not only full of deceptions, it deepens the Guardian's betrayal of Assange and journalism https://www.jonathan-cook.net/blog/2020-09-26/guardian-assange-denial-deceptions/

Typically thought-provoking article from @AlanRMacLeod@twitter.com
What’s particularly good is the effort that’s gone into actually doing some research into the issues and producing some evidence about the way many mainstream journalists have failed to do their duty https://fair.org/home/julian-assange-press-shows-little-interest-in-media-trial-of-century/ https://twitter.com/FAIRmediawatch/status/1309594654363574272
Managing Editor at Shadowproof in London @email@example.com says Julian Assange's legal team have been told Mr Assange has depression, evidence which the defence is putting forward to discourage the extradition of Mr Assange to the United States.
Good #tzag and happy weekend dear fedizens :-)
On Nina Simone:
“I crossed paths with her in the New York City Village Gate nightclub.
I looked up to her. She was an overwhelming artist, piano player & singer. Very strong woman, very outspoken.
That she was recording my songs validated everything that I was about.”
#Podikumarihami a victim of #Police #torture & #harrasment was remanded for 2 weeks for not wearing white to Courts So far, the police have lodged 40 cases against her. The #lka police have been targeting her #land which is near the #Mahaweli river as they need it for me #mining

Some interesting finds at Hall ‘H’ at the Colombo book fair. Lots of small publishers to support and not too crowded yesterday. Restocked a bunch of Russian translations that were childhood favorites. Also found several #lka Twitter folks like @firstname.lastname@example.org @email@example.com and @Cokroach@twitter.com :)
“The official reason given by Google for the removal of #Fediverse apps is that these apps can be used to access […] content which are dedicated to hate speech.”
Somehow this doesn't motivate removal of other apps from Google's app store. What could explain this difference?
“The more freedom you have to leave Google, the bigger a risk you present to Google.”
He surely has a strong following and a fan base here. It's been the case for many decades. There are radio programmes dedicated to Indian film songs and he is still among the most popular singers in these shows.
WATCH: John Shipton 'Julian didn't do anything, they did'
If I may add my two cents, I think more than enough was disclosed.
The whole point of bringing up #Assange's medical history is to argue against extradition under s.91 of the Extradition Act. Not for click bait, sensationalism and further stigmatization of mental illness by MSM.

In 2017, we wrote that within the haze of criminal procedure applicable to online communications, and under powerful telecoms regulators and overcompliant ISPs, queer Lankans are at risk now more than ever before. So when we way say this news scares us, believe it. @Bakamoonolk@twitter.com https://twitter.com/twaradas/status/1308682970887323648
