Rogue Journalist And Monkey Business

Source: Assange Has Been Arrested For US Extradition. The Time To Act Is Now. – Caitlin Johnstone

An excerpt from the above linked-to article follows:

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been arrested and taken into custody by the London’s Metropolitan police, just as WikiLeaks warned days ago was about to happen.

My online (attached to the above linked-to article) comment, in response to another commenter who suggested we propose Julian Assange for the Nobel Peace Prize, follows:

*Mysteriously, This – what follows – was removed. It can’t possibly be the case that it was off topic, inappropriate or problematic in any way. I can’t imagine that Caitlin would have a problem with my response to Jesse, above.

“A “Radical Idea” Reversed: Author Says Nobel Committee Has Betrayed Founder’s Anti-Military Intent” by Fredrik Heffermehl :

“The Nobel Peace Prize for War” by Michael Parenti :

“Nobel Hypocrisy” by Stephen Lendman :

Nobel Hypocrisy


Your conclusions leave much to be desired.

Either Caitlin has issues or else gatekeepers are free to mess up her website. She warns off those who would use her platform to spread lies, so presumably she keeps an eye on that in the comments where she comments from time to time. I’m nobody special, so I don’t necessarily expect her to notice me and notice therefore when my comments disappear – unless she personally disappears them. Then again, Now that this comment has disappeared twice (while a third, different, comment was accepted on another article by Caitlin the next day), I think that it’s more likely that she had an issue with my response to another poster (named Jesse) who suggested we propose the (tainted) Nobel Prize for Julian Assange. If so, then she has issues. People who visit the site and see only a preponderance of comments in favor of proposing the tainted Nobel Peace Prize won’t learn – progress – anything from this site (where the one post with links to actual information about the Nobel Peace Prize was removed).

Strangely, The first comment about the Nobel Peace Prize was removed and then briefly appeared again, right after I put in my second comment and hit send. And very briefly they both showed. Then, shortly after that, they both disappeared. That was nasty. And you’d think that Caitlin would do something about the awful performance of her website – if she is truly very, very appreciative of all the support she gets. We don’t enjoy having no ability to make paragraphs.

In the screen shot below, the red arrow indicates where my post was, twice, before it was removed.
