Also: searched 'wikileaks' on the fox news website, only one of the links refered to details of leaked documents, the others were more about efforst to stop wikileaks.
America's most trusted news source probably would want to avoid looking like they were suppressing material. Has been fun watching Fox's discourse unfold. They've taken a weird stance on the WikiLeaks debate
In the first few days of the cable releases, they were quick to politicize the scoop, as they scrambled to find an angle. In-house 'experts' explained how WikiLeaks was a journalistic organization, and that any government attempt to suppress the material was censorship. Anchors jumped at the chance to draw parallels between WikiLeaks and themselves, having speculative arguments about the right for Americans to know about their own country.
"Blah blah Democrats are Hitler, blah blah constitution, blah blah freedom of speech and press."
Simultaneously, Fox painted WikiLeaks as a cyber-terrorist organization that should be stamped out at all costs before they could destroy the world with long, boring documents that weren't worth reading. . Throw in a few stories on how Assange is a rapist who turns on friends, and mention with shock and horror that the releases are being translated into Arabic (the language of terrorists, doncha know?), and you've got something better than censorship.
Come to think of it, Fox has taken a fucking predictable stance.spots ur retarded. Happy now?
