I'm watching Steve Kroft interview Julian Assange on "60 Minutes". By way of asking Assange if he's surprised that the U.S. government is gunning for him, Kroft tells Assange, "You are screwing with the forces of nature". Can someone please explain the source of the U.S. government's power to Steve Kroft? Even a nitwit Teabagger could do that. Sheesh. I was waiting for Assange to call him on that, but Assange let it go. I think Assange realizes that he's dealing with your basic Village Idiot.
And Gawker is spot-on with regard to Bill Keller's little hit-job on Assange. Keller's terror that Assange has showed the NYT for the has-been servant of power that it is comes through loud and clear.
