In Australia, the United States, and elsewhere, journalists are being targeted for reporting on secret government info. The public’s right to know would be severely inhibited if the press could only publish news the government decides is not “secret.”

The Daily Beast has been tough on Wikileaks. Very tough. But charging someone under the espionage act for publishing classified info -- that's not okay. It sets a terrible, terrible precedent for the rest of us.

The US espionage act charges against Julian Assange for publishing leaked classified information showing US war crimes is a massive attack on media freedoms and free speech. The poison is out - we always knew this was what we were really fighting.

No matter your thoughts on Julian Assange, the latest indictments—under the outdated Espionage Act—are a disgrace. If you support the indictments out of hate for him, you're giving Trump a weapon to restrict the press. The charges should be dropped and the Espionage Act repealed.

The most dangerous aspect of this indictment for freedom of the press is that it would criminalize the encouragement of leaks of newsworthy classified information, criminalize the acceptance of such information and criminalize publication of it. That’s criminalizing journalism.

The charges against Assange are an assault on a free media and a free society. I’m no longer a fan of Assange, but I am a fan of a free society. We’ll be better off, and safer, when the Espionage Act of 1917 is done away with.
