Mark Zuckerburg might be man of the year, but Julian Assange is the man of hour. Out on bail after being arrested on rape charges, the Wikileaks founder is giving interviews to anyone who will listen. He says he’s the victim of an elaborate smear campaign and government corruption.
In an interview with the Today Show’s Matt Lauer after his release, Lauer let Assange lambast the governments of the U.S. and Sweden and plead his case about a smear campaign against him.
“We don’t know what the grounds of that investigation is. Like the Swedish investigation, the whole damn thing is kept secret. We saw three court cases here and every single one of those no single piece of evidence whatsoever was needed to extradite me.”
EU member countries are able to arrest or detain suspects without evidence for other member countries. Assanges’ lawyers are already planning to fight the extradition to Sweden. The BBC called Assange to the carpet regarding his stance on facing charges.
“You yourself have said that you have been accused of double-rape, which is very serious and one would want to clear one’s name in that regard...But given the level of the allegations, wouldn’t you want to clear your name, if you’re so sure that the courts would be fair? Shouldn’t you want to clear your name as quickly as possible?”
Julian Assange may face further legal challenges. U.S. experts and lawmakers testified openly in a hearing before the House Judiciary Committee on Wikileaks. But the Guardian reports extradition to Sweden may not be in the U.S.’s best interest either.
“There is a consensus growing among US constitutional lawyers and others, while rehearsing all the problems attached to bringing a prosecution, that Assange will be indicted. But they doubt the chances of obtaining his extradition from Britain, and they think it will be harder still should he be sent to Sweden.”
Assange’s next hearing is set for January 11th. We’ll leave you with a bit of perspective from the man of the hour.
“But we should remember that this is not the beginning of the end, rather it is merely the end of the beginning.” (NBC)

This is Newsy Now, and here are the headlines you need to know.
First up, world news. Egypt’s demonstrations continue, even after talks between the government and opposition groups are underway.
The media report — talks are simply not enough. Bahrain’s Gulf Daily News says the demonstrators are still determined to see President Hosni Mubarak step down — stat.
Still, Cairo is slowly returning to business as usual, as authorities increase pressure on those still camped out in Tahrir Square. Al Jazeera has the video.
“Protesters say they’ll block any attempt to kick them out.”
Also in world news -- Julian Assange is set to fly around the world -- but he’ll be facing trial at every destination.
Today the Wikileaks founder started his two day court extradition hearing in Britain. CNN says Assange faces extradition to Sweden for charges of sexual misconduct, and then maybe even the United States to stand trial for espionage. Assange’s lawyer tells CNN he could end up n Guantanamo Bay or executed depending on the final destination.
In business news — AOL is acquiring progressive online news site The Huffington Post for $315 million.
One blogger at the Guardian seems critical of the deal, saying, quote, AOL’s grubby hands have long been grabbing the stars of the web, hoping a little stardust might rub off.
The purchase is the latest in AOL’s news operation shopping spree — the company bought TechCrunch and its family of websites last year. CEO Tim Armstrong is on a mission to reinvent AOL as the “most influential company in content space.”
In sports -- the Vince Lombardi trophy is headed back to Green Bay. Last night at Cowboy Stadium, the Packers toppled Big Ben and the Steelers to win their fourth Super Bowl title, 31 to 25.
The New York Post reports Green Bay Quarterback Aaron Rodgers took home the MVP trophy as well, something former QB Brett Farve had yet to accomplish during his time with the Packers.
Christina Aguilera opened the games with her sweeping rendition of the National Anthem. The Telegraph and other news sources report -- she might have gotten carried away, repeating the same verse twice in front of an audience of more than 100 million viewers. Despite the flub, Aguilera hopes fans can see the “true spirit of the anthem came through.”

This is Newsy Now and here are the headlines you need to know.
In world news — A London court has ruled WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to be extradited to Sweden to face allegations of rape and sexual assault.
The Guardian says the ruling is unlikely to be the end of the case, as an appeal is expected. That could delay the final decision until at least summer time. Assange fears the extradition to Sweden would make it easier for Washington to extradite him to the U.S.
And in Libya, protest organizers vowed to “liberate” capital city Tripoli, and called for new rallies for today and Friday.
But Voice of America says, those loyal to Gaddafi are trying to reinforce their grip in the city, a stronghold for the derided leader.
But more and more of Gaddafi’s men are defecting in the wake of his brutality against protesters. euronews has this video.
“It has been reported a Libyan air force jet has crashed near Benghazi after its crew bailed out after refusing to bomb the city. The captain and his number two landed safely with parachutes. Benghazi and most of eastern Libya haven't been under control by Tripoli since the start of the uprising..."
And in U.S. news — The Obama administration declared Wednesday that it will no longer support the federal law that states gay marriage as unconstitutional. Does this make Obama a direct supporter of gay marriage? PBS has the video.
GWEN IFILL: “He has said he was not in favor of actual gay marriage, this seems to take, at a step more in that direction. … Does it seem like groundwork, does people tell you groundwork is being laid for that?”
CHARLIE SAVAGE: “I think's there's a sort of suspicion on both the left and the right that President Obama probably actually is a liberal who favors gay marriage, and he's just not saying so for political reasons. This does seem to be inching closer towards what may be an inevitable evolution for him."
In entertainment -- Charlie Sheen is feeling charitable. The Two and a Half Men star is buying up homes for his estranged wives and having us believe -- the rehab might be working?
Radar Online reports the exclusive details. Charlie’s ex-wife Brook Mueller was gifted an $8 million home in the swanky up-scale Mulholland Estates -- the same neighborhood as Sheen. Brooke and Charlie had twins while together, but split after a violent altercation in 2009 which led to Sheen’s arrest and charges of assault.
Until the 10,000 square foot house is ready Mueller will shack up with Sheen at his house, along with porn star Bree Olson and his new girlfriend Natalie Kenly. Sources say the threes company arrangement is only temporary.

This is part one of the little film I sent back to England last Xmas to all my friends and family when I was in Vancouver. As a lot of people seem to like it so I thought I'd upload it here. It is the first draft of the film and it is missing a few sections which I subsequently filmed. When I get the time I will be re-edit it to include 3 more sections, including an interview with the great Marc Emery!!
As I haven't got the time, (or the discs!), to keep copying what I've done so far for people I thought I'd just stick it on here and then everyone that wants to see it can see it. I hope you all like it!!!!
The film is dedicated to all my friends in Canada, I miss you all guys, but I shall return! Special thanks go to Darren Pearson, Tosh Suo, Kiwi, Marc Emery, Greg Williams, Michelle Rainey and the BC Marijuana Party. My extra special thanks go to Claire, my long suffering girlfriend, who put up with a lot whilst I was spending 18 hours a day cutting making the thing!
