The Guardian or Julian Assange and Wikileaks: Which is the real investigative publisher? (Or "How the Guardian fakes news"). Everybody loves the Guardian sometimes. Really! The guardian, at least, is not a partisan publication, but that doesn't mean it is a reliable source either. The Guardian, in my opinion, is out for the big story, whatever will sell copy: Their axe swings every direction. A current example exists in the recent article, "Manafort held secret talks with Assange in Ecuadorian embassy, sources say ." [Luke Harding and Dan Collyns in Quito, Tue 27 Nov 2018 09.23 EST] The main gist is that President Trump colluded with Russians, but prominently it quotes (tainted source) Alex Jones to claim that without Assange, Trump would not be president.
