FAKE NEWS: The Guardian retracts allegations of close relationship between Assange & Putin


The commercial media has not forgiven WikiLeaks for leaking the damning archive of emails to and from Hilary Clinton while she was the US secretary of State. The emails are believed to have swayed the voters and have been blamed for her loss.

The US Intelligence community also concluded that Russian intelligence hacked the Democratic National Committee’s emails and released them through WikiLeaks and smaller alternative media networks.

An article in The Guardian in December sought to expose the relationship between US President elect Donald Trump, on one hand, and Russian President Putin. By the end of the month, it had to retract its allegations of the relationship.

The Retraction

“This article was amended on 29 December 2016 to remove a sentence in which it was asserted that Assange “has long had a close relationship with the Putin regime”. A sentence was also amended which paraphrased the interview, suggesting Assange said “there was no need for Wikileaks to undertake a whistleblowing role in Russia because of the open and competitive debate he claimed exists there”. It has been amended to more directly describe the question Assange was responding to when he spoke of Russia’s “many vibrant publications”.
