Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Tiger Woods among five players tied for the lead of three under Netzer in Atlanta tonight game night at six here on WCBS, mostly cloudy in New York. Fifty one degrees on Thursday, April eleventh good afternoon. Three thirty one at WCBS. It's the afternoon roundup with Steve Scott in Michael Wallis. Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is facing extradition to the US after his arrest in London today. Bloomberg reporter David coach NS key is on our Newsline. David what charges is Assange facing? Charged with helping Bradley Manning Chelsea Manning hack classified information from the US. So it's it's a very serious charge in the fighting it their defense is going to be that it was a a publisher that WikiLeaks is a publisher. But we'll we'll see how that's going to stand up in court once if and when he does get to the US could he face additional charges, and other cases, that's the big mystery is doing knows following the Muller investigation. Wikileaks was a key publisher of information that was hacked by Russian intelligence. There's a lot of speculation a lot of news coverage trying to see if anyone in the Trump campaign or anyone close to the president campaign was involved in the timing of the release of that there's been no evidence or charges so far. But that was one of the unanswered questions in when attorney general put out his summary of the Miller report. So there'll be a lot of people watching that what have you learned about his arrest? Today out of that develop. There had been a few false alarms in the past month where people in London around the Ecuadorian embassy noticed undercover police in about a month ago. They said we'll the police were just there because there have been a break in the area on over the weekend. Was another rumbling be. So the wicked people knew something was up. I think because the negotiations with the Ecuadoran government were happening when a Sounders taken out he was screaming he was angry. He had kind of a long scraggly beard. It look you look like someone cycle. You would been holed up in an embassy for seven years. All right. David, thanks. Bloomberg's David coaching Eski. Julian Assange is attorney says the arrest of the Wiki leaks founder in London sets a dangerous precedent for journalists in the United States, but is Julian Assange, a journalist on our Newsline. Dan, Shelly executive director of RT DNA, the radio television digital news association. Dan is Julian Assange journalist in. My opinion. Steve Julian Assange is not a journalist got having been said, he doesn't joy when he comes to the United States. If he is extradited he will enjoy the protections of diversity amendment reading. I do believe he's lists is because while he does receive and a half long to journalists. He does seems to do. So in a selective manner in an ideologically driven way that seems to generate controversy and therefore purposely, call more attention to have self Dan is Julian Assange, a whistle blower in the same vein say Daniel Ellsberg in the Pentagon papers decades ago. Do you see parallels between the two I don't necessarily see direct parallels at the moment. But if you'll recall during the Pentagon papers scandal, which went all the way or crisis, which went all the way to the US supreme court. You know? At the moment, it there was a fierce and intense debate in the nation about whether Daniel Ellsberg was a hero or a traitor, and I think we're seeing that same debate. Now with regard to Julian Assange, I think he's a whistle blower is he a patriot or a just a demagogue or someone who's actually a trying to be harmful to political government institutions? I only think that answer will be fully visible to all of us in in the years. In decades to come does Julian Assange is arrest as his lawyer claims set a dangerous precedent for investigative journalists in this country who do sometimes rely on classified documents. The short answer to that question is no the longer answer is possibly. I mean, we'll see what happens and exactly what. Mr Assange is charged with. And how his case proceeds through the courts in the United States right now. I believe he's not a journalist. I believe he's someone who collect information, and then dispatches it in a very strategic manner to further his own interests, Dan, Shelly at the radio television digital news association. Dan. Thank you for talking with us. We appreciate it. Thank you. Steve three thirty six on the WCBS afternoon roundup. Let's say you just bought a house bad.
