Nicky Hager, one of two New Zealand members of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, author of books covering topics such as intelligence networks, environmental issues and politics, testified at the recent extradition trial of Julian Assange.
Nicky Hager, who knows Julian Assange and has worked with Wikileaks., is able to explain the importance of Wikileaks for an informed public, the basis of a healthy democracy. Hager knows the real Julian Assange, who has been so savagely vilified.
Yet, only one NZ media outlet has interviewed Nicky Hager.
That was Earthwise, pro bono presenters Martin and Lois Griffiths, on Christchurch Community Radio Plainsfm96.9.
Please listen to the podcast. Please listen! What Nicky has to say is very very important!
The issue is not only the shocking barbaric treatment of Assange but the implications for journalism itself.
