Kevin Gosztola @kgosztola is a respected online colleague who is one of only a few who’ve covered the entire sittings of the Manning case, alongside @carwinb @pressfreedom and others.
Reporter Kevin Gosztola chuckled when told Foreign Minister Bob Carr is denying Assange is under threat from the US.
He’ll be there for tomorrow’s final day where Manning is expected to be able to make a closing statement as he faces 20 to 90 years in jail.
I interviewed him live on overnight talkback at 6PR

I was a mainstream journalist/radio host for 30 years, but no longer work in a newsroom ( apart from the odd fill-in to help out at 6PR & 96fm ) My work now is not objective, but I do strive for balance and welcome polite opposition.

I first interviewed Malcolm Fraser more than 30 years ago when I was a full time mainstream media journalist & broadcaster – this interview is not very MSM and not meant to be an objective analysis. It was a delight.
The former PM and member of the World Eminent Persons’ Group remains active as the Founding Chairman of CARE Australia.
He’s graciously agreed to talk again before the end of the year. meanwhile please follow him on twitter @MalcolmFraser12 ( and if you can handle a massive stream of alt news – use lists to manage high volume accts – follow me @perthtones )
The 20 minute audio is unedited to preserve it’s integrity, sections will be replayed on Perth radio 6PR Oct 13,14.
First they came for Wikileaks
and I didn’t speak out because I trust my Govt
Then they came for the Egyptians,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t Egyptian.
Then they came for the Syrians,
and I didn’t speak out because I wasn’t a Syrian.
Then they came for the Occupiers,
and I didn’t speak out because I thought they were hippies.
Then they came for mainstream journalists
and there was no one left to speak out for me.
