Julian Assange, the Wikileaks founder whose ambitious plans to change the world were put on hold when he copped a rape charge, is trying to force his way back into the public consciousness. Yesterday Wikileaks announced his own TV show featuring conversations with “key political players, thinkers, and revolutionaries from around the world.” The theme will be “the world tomorrow.”
Ten half-hour episodes will air weekly beginning in March. And Wikileaks claims that the show has the potential to reach over 600 million viewers as a result of the licensing agreements in place, despite no specific mentions of networks and such.
All in all, seems like yet another half-baked idea from a guy who did some great work early on in Wikileaks timeline. Less Woodward & Bernstein, he’s been more Geraldo of late.
