Day 904 journalists

Today is Saturday. Today, I watched a movie based on a true story, “Alone in Berlin.” Otto and Anna Hampel would place postcards anonymously around their city written by Otto. The cards spoke about Hitler being a terror to the people and silencing the free press. They were discovered and they were guillotined as traitors to the Furher.
How much different the silencing of journalists and the free press ( not the corporate propaganda).
Michael Hastings died after investigating the secret drone program.
Serena Shim died after reporting that ISIL militants were being smuggled over the Turkish border into Syria on trucks. She got images of them in World Food Organization trucks.
Barrett Brown founded Project PM, “a research collaboration and wiki, to facilitate analysis of the troves of hacked emails and other leaked information concerning the inner workings of the cyber-military-industrial complex.”
He was sentenced to 63 months for sharing a link related to the leaks about Stratfor. The judge, who sentenced him has a husband who works for Stratfor.
Julian Assange, the publisher for Wikileaks who has been falsely accused, sought asylum in the Ecuadorian embassy in which he is literally imprisoned because the US has a secret indictment against him.
I ask you, do you ever read history?
