WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on Thursday blasted US media outlets, contending in an interview that the power possessed by journalists had greatly diminished in recent years.
“They’re increasingly not very important,” Assange said in a radio interview with Sean Hannity.
The Fox News host agreed: “So true.”
Assange characterized the press as a “paper tiger” in the 2016 election and said the rise of new media had eroded the influence of traditional outlets.
“The old press is less important,” he said.
