'We Regret the Error,' CNN Says after Paid Ex-cia Analyst Calls Julian Assange a Pedophile


(RT News) CNN has all but apologized to Julian Assange after Phil Mudd, a paid analyst, called the WikiLeaks founder a pedophile on live TV. The cable news network's statement came after WikiLeaks threatened to sue unless an apology was given or an exposé on a plot against Assange aired.

CNN’s counterterrorism analyst made the reckless on-air statement on Wednesday while discussing the whistleblower site WikiLeaks. Mudd boldly declared that “there's an effort to protect WikiLeaks (and) a pedophile who lives in the Ecuadorian embassy in London.”

Mudd was referring to Assange, who is wanted for alleged sexual assault charges in Sweden – but not for anything related to pedophilia. As a result, CNN was forced to effectively apologize for the segment and conceded that “CNN has no evidence to support that assertion."

The statement was released hours after WikiLeaks responded to the comment via Twitter in a now deleted tweet, saying, “We have issued instructions to sue CNN for defamation,” and “Unless within 48h they air a one hour expose of the plot.”



CNN’s statement was posted to their New Day Twitter account.
“Assange is currently wanted for extradition to Sweden to face sexual assault allegations there, and no evidence suggests that the women involved were minors. We regret the error,” it read.

Mudd has not responded to questions at this time.

The only known accusations of pedophilia against Assange stem from a strange dating website that claims to be a former UN Global Compact member based in Houston, but which has since been delisted by the UN. The website made claims in October that Assange had sent pornographic material to an 8-year-old Canadian girl living in the Bahamas.

However, there was no report of the crime by the family and Stephen Dean, assistant commissioner of the Royal Bahama Police Force, told McClatchy DC, “We got a phone call of someone giving us some information. But we never had a face-to-face. It could have been a hoax.”

Answer -- The primary goal of Stillness in the Storm is to help all people become better truth-seekers in a real-time boots-on-the-ground fashion. This is for the purpose of learning to think critically, discovering the truth from within—not just believing things blindly because it came from an "authority" or credible source. Instead of telling you what the truth is, we share information from many sources so that you can discern it for yourself. We focus on teaching you the tools to become your own authority on the truth, gaining self-mastery, sovereignty, and freedom in the process. We want each of you to become your own leaders and masters of personal discernment, and as such, all information should be vetted, analyzed and discerned at a personal level. We also encourage you to discuss your thoughts in the comments section of this site to engage in a group discernment process.
