BINGO:

The Time list includes no journalists or whistleblowers from Israel, Egypt, India or any of the NATO countries. And there are no journalists who exposed state secrets or government misconduct in the United States.

Time magazine honors journalists facing repression—but snubs Julian Assange

Khashoggi, who was not so much a journalist as the representative of a dissident wing of the corrupt and highly privileged Saudi ruling elite. He was a grandson of the personal doctor to King Abdul Aziz al-Saud, founder of the dynasty, and nephew of billionaire arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi, a key figure in the Iran-Contra scandal of the 1980s.

Most of the nominees—as well as others mentioned in the Time cover story, journalists from Bangladesh, Brazil, Sudan and Hong Kong—have in common the fact that they have posed little or no threat to the interests of American imperialism or its allies and client states. With the exception of Khashoggi and Saudi Arabia, the regimes with which they came into conflict were either at odds with the United States or not close allies.

Where’s Julian?

 

For 8 years the creator of Wikileaks has been hounded and assailed, unlawfully threatened by the US and Britain, for daring to publish the truth. Wikileaks is the globe’s most reliable source of information, publishing what governments don’t want seen, with a perfect record of never publishing a falsehood in over a decade.

Julian Assange was originally assailed over a bogus accusation of a sex crime, notably having nothing to do with rape or assault in any way. The woman was convinced to file a complaint against him because he didn’t call her again after the fact. Quite the ridiculous “crime.”

TIME MAGAZINE has always been a mainstream propaganda distributor, and I haven’t trusted it since the 1980s. They maintain a thin veneer of credibility by honoring some while dishonoring others. Khashoggi gets canonized while Julian gets erased from history. Not one word in its piece on supposed “Guardians” of truth.
