Yesterday vs. Today: Liberal Media’s Double Standard on Assange and Wikileaks is Astounding!

If The Media Didn’t Have Double Standards They’d Have None At All

What’s worse, the email hacks of the DNC and John Podesta’s office, or the hacks who call themselves journalists at America’s major media outlets?

Let’s take a look at past and present treatment of hacked material, and how it was regarded in progressive media circles prior to this election cycle.

The single best contrast can be found when examining coverage of hacked Pentagon data on the Iraq war. There was very little handwringing over hacked data that embarrassed President Bush and the US military.

And let’s not forget, this is the same progressive media machine that called Edward Snowden a whistleblower after he hacked the NSA’s top secrets and spirited them off to…wait for it…RUSSIA.

Daily Beast – Snowden’s Revenge: New Mega-Spying Project Revealed

Here, the Washington Post argues for a Presidential Pardon for Snowden!

Not to be outdone, the New York TImes also argues for a Snowden pardon.

So you see, Edward Snowden, a hacker living in Russia under Putin’s protection, deserves a hero’s pardon. But the very same media also say Putin is a criminal who hacked America’s democracy. So which is it? It can’t be both.
