Thanks very. Much. Thank you. The Justice department today unveiled new charges against WikiLeaks founder, Julian Assange right now. Assange is in a British prison for jumping bail there. But he's a wanted man in both the US and Sweden to talk about how these new charges complicated his situation, we're joined by NPR's national Justice. Correspondent Jerry Johnson? She's been following the US investigation for years. Welcome back to the studio Kerry. What can you tell us about these new charges against Julian Assange, remember, Julian Assange, already faced one charge conspiracy to engage in computer hacking for his role in the leak by former army private Chelsea Manning? Manning gave Wiki leaks State Department cables, warlords and assessment of detainees at Guantanamo today. A grand jury in Virginia slap Julian Assange with seventeen more charges, these are extremely serious alleging violations of the espionage act that includes conspiracy to obtain receive and disclose national defense information and attempting to crack a password to help Chelsea Manning get into. Database to obtain even more secrets the way more serious than the first charge related to hacking. So are prosecutors going in a different direction? Yeah. In some ways, they are the new charges described chats between manning and Assange on March twenty ten where Assange was basically soliciting state secrets, according to the Justice department and prosecutors here are also charging with publishing information something the Obama administration never wanted to do normally prosecutors charge, the leaker of the information, not the person who published it. But thorns at the Justice department insist Assange is being charged narrowly here, the assistant attorney general for national security. John dimmers told reporters Julian Assange is no journalists look at the entirety of his conduct killing go back to that for a second if he's being charged with publishing material. What are the implications for the first amendment for pressroom? Yeah. Julian Assange is certain to raise a first amendment defense, he basically says if he faces prison time. So with New York Times the. The Washington Post and other news outlets. In fact, Bruce Brown who runs the reporters committee for freedom of the press is just out with a statement saying these charges pose dire threat to all journalists. The fear is this legal theory could be used to criminalize core. Reporting activity, some of us do every day, the Justice department says, there's a difference that was warned by the State Department, at the time not to publish some of these documents, but he persisted publish the names of human sources in Iran China in Syria. There's no evidence any of those people were killed. But prosecutors say they only have to show there was a potential for harm to those people in order to succeed in court. In the meantime, Swedish authorities revived rape case against Assange suggesting that they wanna turn it prosecuting him. What are the odds that hill ever make it to the US face trial?.

Computers connected to the secret internet protocol network, a US government network use for classified documents and communications conspiracy to commit compute intrusion, which violates the computer fraud and abuse act is a more easily provable crime in what could be a lodge criminal context. The conspiracy component of it can be pretty easy to prove that there had to be some degree of coordination of efforts and action. You can at least demonstrate through Email and other communications that they were working in some degree in concert to produce an outcome. Limiting the indictment against Assange to this one narrow charge and not charging him with espionage leaves aside any first amendment questions that could have been raised about WikiLeaks publishing classified information. How does this differ from.

"I will buy blockbuster's online business and he thought that it would make way more sense to have a merger between the two companies. And ultimately the deal went nowhere. The new CEO for blockbuster was someone else who came from seven, eleven? His name is James keys keys led the company and changed its identity from blockbuster video to blockbuster media. He found various ways to cut costs, pray dramatically in the began changing up the. Lines and services, but blockbuster was too far gone. It wouldn't have mattered. If keys efforts were really great or not great. At all, the company was pretty much beyond help. It had seen its business, go to competitors like net flicks and red box had a large amount of debt that it was not able to pay off. A lot of that was owed to Viacom and keys tried his best. He led a failed attempt to purchase another big company. This was a a weird decision in two thousand eight. He was trying to acquire Circuit City. That was a one billion dollar deal, but it fell through and Circuit City would actually go bankrupt the following year. Now I did up associates about Circuit City earlier, so you can learn more about that if you go through the archives, but plenty of analysts looked at qisas move when he said, I'm I want to acquire Circuit City and they thought that just don't make no sense. I mean, a struggling company rarely improves once they acquire a different struggling. Any. That's an another industry. Rarely do you see to struggling companies band together and make a real go at it. It's it's that's a Cinderella story by two thousand nine. There were whispers that blockbuster was headed toward bankruptcy in March twenty ten. Perhaps in a move of desperation, the company reintroduced late fees, got rid of them and then twenty ten. They put them back in and customers hate late fees, but they did represent a decent amount of revenue for blockbuster in the past, which is why the company kind of brought him back before blockbuster got rid of late fees. The company had already run into trouble once before. So I mentioned that one about the no late fees and that lawsuit, there was actually a lawsuit that happened even before that, that in two thousand one, that's because the late fees back before this change could grow to the point where they were actually more than the value of the rental. So you could end up getting charged more than what it was, what it would cost for you to go out and buy a copy of the thing. You. We're renting, and that ended up becoming a lawsuit. So this new reinstate late fee would take a different approach. They didn't want to have that same issue. So the idea was that a late fee would be incurred you'll get a dollar fee for every day. You were late up to ten days, and at that point was capped. So up to an additional ten dollar fee on a late return, not quite as as exorbitant, but customers don't like late fees. So didn't really matter in two thousand ten, blockbuster lost more than a billion dollars. The valuation for the company at that time was twenty four million bucks still a lot of money, but twenty four million. That was a huge fall from where blockbuster wasn't its peak net flicks by the way at that same time in twenty ten that little company that anti occas people had scoffed at a decade earlier was valued at thirteen billion dollars. Even though the only remaining video chain in the United States was movie gal. The only other one besides blockbuster, that one underwent liquidation and twenty ten. So movie gallery goes away at liquidates. That leaves blockbuster as the only video rental store.
