Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America discuss the recent charges brought against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange and dismiss his claim of being a journalist. They also cross the pond to the UK, where Prime Minister Theresa May is resigning over the Brexit debacle and size up the race to replace her. Finally, they collectively cringe at what may be the most embarrassing book interview of all time, as a British host politely points out feminist Naomi Wolf based a major portion of her book on an incorrect assumption about historical records.

    None of the distinctions you tried to draw between Wikileaks and the “established” press make a dimes worth of difference for First Amendment purposes.  They are literally legally entirely irrelevant.  If Bradley Manning had given me the materials and I posted them on Facebook (or Ricochet) would I have any less First Amendment rights than the New York Times?  No.  Does the first amendment say you’re only covered if you write a story using the structure taught in the Columbia School of Journalism?  No.  It protects all speech.

    Assange may be found guilty, but if he is, it will be because he conspired in stealing the materials in some way, not just for publishing them.

    I point this out only because I love the Podcast and you guys are too smart to spout such legal nonsense just because you don’t like the guy,
