WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange has started an interview show on Russian television, and the first show provides an unprecedented interview with a leader of Hezbollah. Assange declares the purpose of the interview is to ask Nasrallah to address why he is a “freedom fighter” to millions and at the same time a “terrorist” to millions of others, indicating Assange has no intention to simply prove critics of Hezbollah wrong. He wishes to objectively explore both issues that have earned mainstream attention.

Border exception searches
Badly managed informants (in this case, Prouty’s own brother)
Trial in the public sphere
