According to RT
, the U.S. is intolerant to criticism.
The first controversial episode of "The World Tomorrow" aired yesterday, in which Julian Assange interviewed the leader of Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah. Digital Journal
posted an article including the video of the interview.
Julian Assange's debut as a TV interviewer on RT News has drawn both criticism and praise from around the world, as was expected beforehand.
The famous WikiLeaks whistleblower will be attracting much controversy as the series continues, due to both his choice of guests and also for the channel he has chosen to air the show.
In the video above, U.S. journalist and anti-war activist, Don DeBar talks about how there is nothing surprising in the criticism coming in over Assange's show, especially given how whistleblowers are treated there.
Among other things, Julian Assange is now being accused of being a "Russian agent in a war against the U.S."
