Julian Assange exile

2012-04-27-mediabitesreal.jpg We don't usually get into foreign affairs over here at Media Bites, but sometimes life just hands you one of those weeks where nothing on the domestic seems to be turning anyone's journalistic crank. This weekend Canada's papers were filled mostly with chatter about noted Internet Deep Throat/ Simpsons guest star Julian Assange, and his recent Ecuadorian embassy-squatting shenanigans in England. None of the glitz and glamor of a Jason Kenney story, I grant you, but we'll just have to make due.
