War on Journalism | Bob Woodward & Julian Assange

4.3 ·

If Julian Assange goes to prison for revealing government secrets, no journalist is safe—even the famous Washington Post reporter, Bob Woodward, who broke the “Watergate” story uncovering secret crimes of the Nixon administration. To illustrate this point I’ve logged dozens of examples of Woodward bragging about his adventures obtaining and disclosing classified information—what Assange is facing prison for. In fact, throughout Woodward’s five hour Master Class, “Bob Woodward Teaches Investigative Journalism”, he repeatedly teaches his students how to obtain and disclose classified information.

Woodward: “Everyone saves documents. Now in this era they save them on computers. One thumb drive can contain so much material and if you can get somebody to plug your thumb drive into their computer—say the NSA or the CIA—you could get all kinds of important information.”

Our mission is to provide citizens with the knowledge and perspectives essential to creating a more beautiful, just, sustainable, and democratic society.

Films For Action was founded in 2006 by a few friends in Lawrence, Kansas, after realizing how essential a healthy media is to a healthy democracy.

Today, with the help of our members (who can add content directly to our site), we've curated over 5,000 of the best documentaries, short films, and videos that can be watched for free online plus several dozen pay-per-view documentaries, sorted into 34 subjects related to changing the world.

And, since there's still so much to learn about that isn't featured in a film, we've also curated over 4,000 articles.
