However, (a week before the Australian release date of ‘The Fifth Estate’) Assange has found time to make the Wikileaks-produced documentary ‘MEDIASTAN’ available on the net for your viewing pleasure. The arrival of ‘Mediastan’ comes soon after Assange published an email he penned to Fifth Estate star
Bendydinck Cummerbund Butterscotch Candybatch Bandicoot Crumblycake Bumperstump Cabbagepatch Benedict Cumberbatch urging him to reconsider his involvement in the Dreamworks produced project. In it he stated, “I cannot permit this film any claim to authenticity or truthfulness. In its current form it has neither, and doing so would only further aid the campaign against me.”
According to the film’s press release, this is the movie you should be watching this weekend. In the words of Assange, “Why is everybody watching David? Because Goliath is an insufferable bore.”
