Julian Assange: Pro-Hillary Media 'Erecting a Demon'

Julian Assange, the founder of the WikiLeaks, said Wednesday the United States media is clearly biased toward Hillary Clinton in the presidential election.

"The American liberal media is falling over themselves to defend Hillary Clinton," Assange, who has been living at the Ecuadorian Embassy in London under asylum since 2012, told The New York Times.

The interview was shown live on Facebook.

Assange's comments on Clinton and the media appear around the 17:40 mark of the video posted above.

"[They are] erecting a demon who is going to put nooses around everyone's necks as soon as she wins this election, which she is almost certainly going to do," Assange said.

"[It’s] that attempted reframing by Hillary Clinton, to declare media organizations that are publishing material that shows illicit behavior in the [Democratic National Committee] to fix the election for her, as somehow being Russian agents."

Assange pointed out the Clinton campaign's insistence that Trump and some of his handlers are working hand-in-hand with Russia. Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort has ties to Russia, according to reports.

Clinton and some news organizations, such as The New York Times, claimed Russian President Vladimir Putin was behind the hack and subsequent release of Democratic National Committee emails which painted a poor picture of the party.

"Her campaign has effectively called, or maybe even directly called Donald Trump, the opposition leader in this case, a Russian agent," Assange said.

"Jill Stein, the Green Party candidate, the fourth candidate effectively in terms of numbers, has also been called a Russian agent. This is a neo-McCarthyist hysteria."
