This is bigger than one man: Rebecca Vincent on Julian Assange’s trial, how to combat disinformation and handle twitter trolls.
In the new episode of Trouble with the Truth, Lana interviews Rebecca Vincent from Reporters without Borders.
Rebecca has been monitoring the extradition trial of the WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. After spending seven years in the Ecuadorian embassy, the journalist has been arrested by the Met police in 2019 and if extradited to the US, he’s facing 175 years in prison. Rebecca talks about the importance of this case for freedom of the speech worldwide and why we must look beyond Assange’s controversial persona when talking about the trial. They also spoke about the pandemic of disinformation that was exacerbated by Donald Trump’s presidency and how to handle online hate from twitter trolls.
