WATCH: Azerbaijan President Ilham Aliyev Torches BBC Journalist About Free Media & Julian Assange


I’ll start off by saying this is NOT about the Nagorno-Karabakh Conflict.

But to discuss the hypocrisy of western mainstream media outlets.

In this case, the BBC.

An interview with Azerbaijan President Ilham Aliyev surfaced from last November and is now trending online.

Part of his interview with a BBC journalist was previously censored due to the conversation moving to imprisoned journalist Julian Assange.

Aliyev lectured the journalist commenting that western media has no right to accuse them of censoring freedom of speech or freedom of the press.

And the BBC journalist looks completely shaken and immediately tries to redirect the interview.

Here’s the section referencing Assange:

Here’s the entire interview:

With the continued imprisonment of Assange, the hypocritical mainstream press can’t lecture anyone about human rights abuses or civil liberties.
