Journalists willing participants in Ecuador’s attempt at Assange character assassination

Ecuador's President Lenin Moreno says no other country had an influence over the decision to revoke the WikiLeaks founder's asylum.

Apparently more interested in (allegedly) salacious details of Assange's nearly seven-year exile inside the west-London embassy, members of the United Kingdom and USA press have been breathlessly repeating flaky Quito-leaked claims about his living habits and personal hygiene.

And new security video obtained by the Spanish newspaper El Pais confirms the whistleblower showed little respect for his hosts' house rules, casually skateboarding around his room like a disobedient teenager.

Security footage from inside Ecuador's embassy in London shows WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange try to skateboard through a small room.

The Ecuadoran president has defended his decision to withdraw Julian Assange's asylum status, saying that the WikiLeaks founder had tried to set up a "spying centre" from the diplomatic mission in London.

While Assange awaits the very likely possibility of extradition to the U.S. and prosecution for reporting on the sins of the world's most powerful, mainstream media "journalists" are doing humanity another great service - by posting irrelevant videos and pictures taken inside the embassy in an effort to assist Quito in its smearing efforts.

Supporters of Assange protest outside the British Embassy in Washington, DC.

He is then seen pointing a camera at the guard, who attempts to confiscate it from him.

But when you're Julian Assange, holed up inside an embassy for seven years, you're options are pretty limited.

"I've been visiting him for the last seven years. The politics changed when Ecuador's political situation changed with a new leader".

They also accused the Ecuadoran government of "engaging in a disinformation and slander campaign against Assange" after a series of reports emerged detailing his increasingly disfunctional relationship with embassy staff.

Assange is being held in custody at Belmarsh Prison in southeast London, awaiting sentencing in Britain for skipping bail to avoid being sent to Sweden as part of an investigation of a rape allegation.

Why was Julian Assange arrested?

"This activity violates asylum conditions".

They are expected to fight to have him extradited to the U.S. for allegedly conspiring with former army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning to break into a classified government computer.

After his arrest last week, Assange was taken to Westminster Magistrates' Court in London, where he was found guilty of breaching his bail conditions, and USA officials charged him with conspiracy.
