I checked it with the person I trust most about all things Wikileaks, Bella Magnani, on Twitter. She explained it was false and I immediately took it down. I apologize to Truth Barrier readers, but there is a more valuable lesson here. Big money is being spent to discredit Julian Assange by creating imposter accounts on Twitter.
Thus is why I miss the days of interviewing people on creaky old tape recorders. You always knew that the person was real, and said what they said.
I feel sorry for people who only have “fake news” as their life-blood.
