Joe Biden never talks about Julian Assange, not that the American press ever bother to ask. Quite the opposite from Biden is Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO), who has been a forceful and outspoken voice demanding that Assange be freed. In other ways as well, AMLO has taken a more oppositional stance toward Mexico’s neighbor to the north than any other Mexican president in recent memory.
The Jimmy Dore Show When Viktor Shokin, a former Prosecutor General of Ukraine and notable target of onetime Vice President Joe Biden, wrote a book about his experiences in office, there were powerful individuals within the U.S. Government who didn’t want people reading this book, or even becoming aware it existed. And that’s why government agents insisted Twitter censor accounts promoting Shokin’s book, along with countless others in the tsunami of demands for censorship from government agencies that were flooding into the social media company prior to the 2020 election. Guest host Aaron Maté and journalist Matt Taibbi discuss the very dangerous precedent established by this unseemly private-public censorial partnership.
