Assange Turns on the Guardian

Julian Assange has started speaking in the third person: “Someone in authority clearly intended to keep Julian in prison,” he tells the Times of London in an interview in which he turns on The Guardian newspaper for its “disgusting” decision to publish details from the police report detailing claims of sexual assault against him. According to the Times of London, “Mr. Assange is understood to be particularly angry with Nick Davies, a senior reporter at the paper and former friend, for 'selectively publishing' incriminating sections of the police report, although The Guardian has made clear that the WikiLeaks founder was given several days to respond and it is known that some graphic detail of his conduct with one woman was not published.” Previously, WikiLeaks had given The Guardian early access to its big dumps this year.
