With a new administration in Washington it will be a challenge to get the 'liberals' to hold Biden-Harris to the few 'progressive promises' they made during their campaign. Biden is bringing back many of Bush & Obama's neo-cons to head his foreign policy. I'll be on this case without hesitation.

Assange on Fox News

Normally Fox News would vilify Julian Assange but in this case they gave him a chance to explain that Russia did not 'hack' the US election.

I can't blame Fox News for wanting to protect their chosen candidate Trump as he has repeatedly said that he does not believe Russia did any hacking of the US election.  CNN and MSNBC protect the Democrats all the time.  Turn about is fair play.

It's obvious to me that the Democrats are trying to pass blame onto Russia for their own disastrous loss to Trump in the election.  In addition, the neo-cons, who basically control the Dem party, were eager to push toward regime change in Moscow after Hillary got elected.  Their plans were interrupted when many working class people (largely former Democrats) in the rust belt states voted for Trump because the Obama administration did virtually nothing for these voters who turned out to be hungry for change due to their bleak economic situation.  (Obama did virtually nothing for the black community either during his eight years in office while he was very generous to Wall Street.)

Assange holds steady during this interview to the true mission of Wikileaks which is to expose government corruption and corporate domination of the political process.

I remain an admirer of Assange and am grateful to Fox News (no matter their agenda) for this extensive interview.
