UPDATED: Hypocrisy? Wikileaks founder ready to launch new show on propagandist Russia Today

UPDATE: Glenn also addressed this story in more detail on GBTV:

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Original Story:

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is getting ready to launch a new show on the network Russia Today, a network generally seen as a propaganda arm for the Putin-led nation here in America. Keep in mind that not long ago, Assange was promising to reveal some secret information about Russia, information that never actually came to light. Is it a coincidence that he is now hosting a show on Russia Today? And isn’t it hypocritical that Assange would now be working for a network tied so closely with a political system marked by secrecy and censorship? Glenn analyzes Assange and his new show in the clip above!

    Hypocrisy no.

    Assange is either an established Russian agent, compromised agent, or became an ally of theirs (for as long as he remains useful) when they realized he could be used and controlled by a generous incentive of not killing him in the most hideous of means.

    Many journalists have dared to stand up against Putin and Russia; many have died strange and bizarre deaths; often proclaimed to be accidents.

    With Putin and friends there are no “accidents,” just different means of delivering murder.

    Assange will have his day of reckoning arrive when there is no more use for him by his dedicated comrads of Russia.

    I guess all it takes to win a noble prize is to hate United States and be on the left.

    I wonder if Mr. Beck realizes that our media spews its own propaganda. CNN showed soccer riots while saying they were protests in the streets over the Russian elections. Fox showed footage from the riots in Greece while saying they were Russian protests. It’s all propaganda. I don’t buy much of it from any side.

    Sadly, Glenn Beck has been either co-opted unknowing or knowingly.

    Google what he did to Texas’ last great hope, Debra Medina, and you will know. I didn’t watch him for a year after he betrayed Texan conservatives to back Bush’s appointee Rick Perry.

    He ambushed her with trick questions, he had a Perry staffer in the room with him, and then within 30 minutes the Rick Perry campaign sent out robocalls using the audio. They can say it’s a coincidence all they want, but they’d be liars.

    Debra Medina was Texas’ first REAL shot at a Nullification governor, and Glenn Beck is PERSONALLY responsible for her fall. She was predicted to beat Rick Perry if Glenn’s ambush hadn’t happened. Just like how Glenn didn’t decide to get behind Rick Santorum until LATE in the campaign when he knew it wouldn’t have enough of an effect to derail fellow mormon Romney

     Many journalists have died in “accidents” in the US as well. Google Sandy Hume, Brit Hume’s son (poor Brit doesn’t even realize), who decides to commit suicide right in the middle of the biggest story of his career.

    Or Vince Foster, poor guy was Hillary’s lover and she had him killed just to save her career and to prevent people finding out her marriage was one of political convenience not love.

    And today Hillary Clinton says we have to back Al-Qaeda affiliated rebels in Syria because we are fighting on the same side for “democracy” (which in the mideast tend to elect anti-israel terrorists far worse than any strongman dictator).

    How can the US govt deny 9/11 truthers when it today is admitting to WORKING alongside Al Qaeda in Libya and Syria?!

    God help us if those US intelligence agents working alongside Al Qaeda in Libya and Syria don’t decide to hire those mideast terrorists to create a “crisis” in America. And then Rahm Emanuel’s Obama team will make sure to “never let a crisis go to waste”.

    Remember that the Muslim Brotherhood has already been visiting the White House and with Obama; so I imagine that the incident with the terrorists has already been arranged by now; and the fact is in Syria, as with Libya, so long as the radical Islamist terror groups strike at Assad, then Obama will support them in full.

    This is the main reason he failed to support a true reform movement in the nation of Iran, as the radicals there are already in power.

    What a wonderful world, it takes Russia Today to give Julian Assange air time, I hope the show is a success and lots of deserving people get coverage.

    I personally, am getting weirded out by Mr Beck and his 2 groupies. [Is anyone else feeling this way?] When GB was on FOX, I liked to tune in because he seemed to make a lot of sence. Now though, he seems to do a lot of mocking, and sounding just like the ‘Left’ that he is critical of. Plus, I am starting to see an ‘agenda’ develope, favoring certain people who I am not comfortable with, like Romney. I think Santorum would have been a much better choice for President. Romney, in my opinion, is as out of touch with Americans as Obama and Bush [the Mega rich]. Ive got this gut feeling that Romney is going to take America down an even worst road than we have seen so far. I pray that I am wrong. I also pray that Obama doesnt get re-elected.

     If Ms. Medina is a Truther then she should be comfortable with the Truth and all it entails.

     Apparently you are not following Glen Beck because he backed Santorum while he was in the race so I have no idea what you are talking about. Bush and Obama are not mega rich, they are just rich. Romney is mega rich and a great American. He has created jobs, he gives a lot of money to charity, he doesn’t drink’ smoke, or cheat on his wife. He ran successful businesses. He raised 5 boys who will not collect welfare. Instead they will be productive members of society. He won his home state election by 70% so he must have been an effective governor. It was not likely Santorum would even win his home state if he stayed in the race. He lost his Senate by the widest margin of any sitting Senator. Judging by your comments you may not even know Santorum dropped out yet. You seem to think because you are mega rich you do not care about your country. That just simply is not true.

     The Bushes and Rick Perry are not friends or political allies. I think Glen has a closed mind when it comes to Obama’s birth certificate and is out to proved everyone wrong who disagrees with him on that issue wrong. It is likely Debra Medina  was a casualty of that thinking. Obama will not let anyone look at the original record birth certificate. There is something inherently wrong with that. Legal experts in an Arizona task force have said the online version is a fake. That doesn’t even seem to stir doubt in Glen’s or Bill O’rielly’s minds.

     That is ‘sadly’ funny CH.

    I agree with you and I supported Santorum from the beggining but like many have said, the most important part not to forget is to get Obama out of office.  There are things about Romney I don’t care for but I will definitely back him.  Obama and the left are counting on us to be divided.  Think hard before you make a bad choice and let Obama return for four more.  Just a thought…….is ludichrist2000 a left plant? None of use should cast doubt on the primary objective.  If you do, I seriously doubt who you realy are or you aren’t realy paying attention to what this administration is doing.

    Thanks for your post gijoe. Now that you mention it ludichrist2000 is probably a leftest plant. I do not think a conservative christian who would be a Santorum supporter would use the letters ‘christ’ in their posting name. Also it doesn’t come off as a sincere or informed post. It comes off as someone who thinks he is being clever but is not.

    Why didn’t Obama get to him first?

    That little clip of the POTUS whispering to the Russina counterpart should wake-up those in our government that cherish their freedoms.

    Google “King World News” website, a site that gives you the real story, oh sorry this site is “currently unavailable”. Wake up America, censorship is here!

    I disagree, you and others may think it’s about getting rid of Obamao, but I do not. See, I will not vote for any establishment lackey. It doesn’t matter if their name is Obamao or Romney. I will not vote for the “lesser of two evils.” That’s exactly what got us into this mess in the first place. I will vote for the only guy that loves this country and its people, the only guy that will follow the Constitution, even when it does not suit him. His name is Ron Paul.

    Probably because good ol’ Julian does not fear Obamao. He does fear Putin. Putin will send in the Spetz to kill him. Obamao will do nothing.

    Great show Glen, I was over watching the Keiser report on R T and ‘Jill’ in the forum put a post up to your show for the truth about R T….I have great respect for all reporters and your show contrasts well with Keisers show..Perhaps you may take that as an insult to be put in the same sentance as Keiser,, I hope you  do not.You forgot to mention all the reporters killed in the feild who give their lifes up so I may see and hear the news and I have nothing but respect for the journalists who are murderd or asasinated or killed for bringing truth to life.
    A slight misstake on your part was to demerie the Nobel peace award to Assange,just because it is ‘given’ to someone you dislike does not make it unworthy..
    I am new to this forum so if addressing you personaly is not the done thing then I apologise for doing so….I am sure you could rip me a new one if you cared to do so. Bad spelling on my part on the Keiser forum has a few ‘ellite forum devas’ stomping all over me for not being as gramaticly correct as their selfs.Twould appear only gramaticly correct people are entitled to an opinion there.I look forwards to watching more of your shows and the team you have on air with you…Gary….
