Wikileaks has announced its intention to sue the broadcasting network CNN after a counter-terrorism analyst referred to Julian Assange as a ‘pedophile’ on one of its programs. A spokesperson from Wikileaks announced the organization’s intention to take legal action on Twitter writing; “We have issued instructions to sue CNN for defamation. Unless within 48h they air a one-hour expose of the plot.”
The allegations that Assange is a pedophile was made during an appearance of Phil Mudd, a former counter-terrorism for the CIA, on a current affairs segment discussing Assange’s recent interview with CNN’s rival network, Fox News. In the course of his interview, Assange said that he was not convinced that the Russian state had been involved in hacking the emails of various Democrat Party members including Hillary Clinton’s right-hand man, John Podesta. He said that the hacking was so simple that a ‘kid’ could have carried out the operation.
On CNN, Mudd sad that journalists from Fox News should have questioned Assange more closely to deduce how exactly he knew about the extent of Russian involvement in the cyber-attack against the Democratic Party. After making this point, Mudd sensationally went on to say that Assange was a “pedophile who lives in the Ecuadorian embassy in London.” The broadcast was aired on television and shared on social media platforms, including Twitter and Facebook, where the content was made available to hundreds and thousands of viewers.
Last year, an online dating website accused Assange of being a pedophile but there was no evidence to suggest that there was anything substantive about these allegations. It is believed that Mudd was probably referring to these unsubstantiated allegations while speaking on CNN. Wikileaks says that they would like CNN to conduct an hour long expose the people that started this damaging rumor. However, if they failed to do so within the next forty-eight hours that Wikileaks would begin legal action against the broadcasting network.
