article imageABC News lands interview with WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange

By Yukio Strachan     Jun 29, 2013 in Entertainment
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange will appear on ABC News' "This Week" Sunday for an exclusive interview, the network said Friday.
According to an ABC press release, George Stephanopoulos talks one-on-one with the WikiLeaks founder who has been hiding out in London’s Ecuadorean embassy after fallout from his website’s publication of a trove of classified U.S. material in 2010.
ABC News gave this preview: "How have Assange and WikiLeaks aided Snowden as he seeks safe passage from Russia? Should Snowden and WikiLeaks' partners be considered whistle-blowers or lawbreakers? And what is the future of WikiLeaks as its controversial efforts remain under scrutiny around the world?"
The Huffington Post reported that the apparent alliance has raised questions about whether Snowden will benefit from partnering with the organization.
The Post writes that Snowden's father Lonnie recently told NBC News that he is worried that people, including those from WikiLeaks, could be manipulating his son. “I think WikiLeaks, if you’ve looked at past history, you know, their focus isn’t necessarily the constitution of the United States," he said. "It’s simply to release as much information as possible.”
Assange's interview with Stephanopoulos will air at 11 a.m. Sunday on ABC, the Orlando Sentinal states.
