WATCH: CN Live! —‘The Media Trial of the Century’

Watch the CN Live! preview show on the resumption of the extradition hearing of imprisoned WikiLeaks’ publisher Julian Assange at Old Bailey in London. 






Joining the curtain-raiser show were prominent Australian journalists Mary Kostakidis and Andrew Fowler, plus British legal analyst and editor Alexander Mercouris, and reporter Mohamed Elmaazi.

Kostakidis is a former news presenter on the SBS national network. Fowler is a former foreign editor of The Australian newspaper, ABC correspondent for its Four Corners show and author of The Most Dangerous Man in the World, about Julian Assange. 

Mercouris is a Consortium News contributor and Elmaazi writes for The Canary and other publications.

The panel discussed in two segments what’s at stake beyond Assange’s fate; what the prosecution and defense strategies might be; the weakness of the prosecution case; the political nature of the proceedings and how the media has covered Assange so far. The program begins with a tribute to legendary activist Kevin Zeese, a guest on CN Live!, who died suddenly Saturday night.

Join your hosts Elizabeth Vos and Joe Lauria for Season 2, Episode 14 of CN Live!: The Media Trial of the Century.
