BREAKING. Wikileaks founder Julian Assange getting his own TV interview show on RT from March entitled The World Tomorrow.
Wikileaks founder Julian Assange is getting his own TV interview show on the 24 news channel RT (DStv 405) entitled The World Tomorrow starting from March.
"We're proud to host Julian Assange's new project,'' says Margarita Simonyan, the editor-in-chief of RT, in a just-issued press statement.
''RT has rallied a global audience of open minded people who don't take things around them for granted. Our viewers are open to the discussions that will be presented through Julians' show on our channel''.
In The World Tomorrow, Julian Assange will talk to political players, thinkers and revolutionaries and figures who - in his opinion - are shaping the political agenda of tomorrow.
Julian Assange is filming The World Tomorrow from the location of his house arrest where he has been confined, with no charge, for 413 days. Filming of his new TV show will start a week before his Supreme Court hearing.
''Upheavals and revolutions in the Middle East have commenced an era of real political change that is still unfolding,'' says Julian Assange. ''Wikileaks, as the world's boldest publisher, has been at the frontline of this global movement for change, and our project is designed to catalyse the global discussion about the world of tomorrow. Through this series I will explore the possibilities for our future in conversations with those who are shaping it''.
