Kevin Gosztola ( is one of the literal handful of journalists who has been given access to a video link of the Assange Extradition Hearing. Kevin walks about how he got the Court to agree to it, why the court has been so secretive and limited zoom access, what he thinks the judge would be embarrassed by and the extra challenges of covering covering "sensitive" news during COVID-19. Plus, Kevin shares some of the most infuriating things he's witnessed.

Check out Kevin's guide to the other journalists and organizations covering the hearing.

Some notable cowards in the progressive independent media ignoring Assange: TYT, Majority Report and Chapo Trap House.

They came to slay Julian, but they themselves are slain.

Latest act of cowardice by Senator Bernie Sanders: In the Consortium News Live video today they interviewed an Assange lawyer approaching politicians around the world to sign a new protest letter asking that Assange immediately be released. The lawyer said Bernie was approached and refused to become involved. With Bernie, it’s increasingly a case of "do what I say, which is what ever the DNC shoves up his sock puppet *ss." Meanwhile, Jeremy Corbyn signed the letter.

Don't feel bad, Katie. Tulsi Gabbard was fooled by Bernie Sanders too.

This is brutal to follow, and think about, and feel powerless about...bc even with all that's going on in this crazy country right now, I feel there's still a sense that somehow, some way, we just might be able to crawl and scratch our way out of a last gasp (mixed metaphor, I know...ugh)...
But this poor man...this poor, poor man. It's harrowing to see this happening right in front of our eyes. It makes me think of how people must have felt in the 50s who watched the Rosenbergs being railroaded into death knowing what was happening just shouldn't be...
