Murdoch paper echoes Washington line over Wikileaks

“Journalism” Murdoch style with the headline, “Life’s a Breach, Julian” in the New York Post:

Apparently, the public doesn’t have the right to know everything.

The lawyer for WikiLeaks leader Julian Assange whined yesterday that his client is being treated unfairly because a Swedish police report detailing his rape charges was leaked to British newspaper.

“It is with great concern that I hear about this because it puts Julian and his defense in a bad position,” Britain’s Sunday Times quoted Bjorn Hurtig as saying.

The stunning display of chutzpah came as Vice President Joe Biden said WikiLeaks acts like a “high-tech terrorist” and has made it harder to conduct the nation’s business.
