I love ya, Gutfeld. But you’re wrong, so wrong on this.

THE MEDIA HAS FAILED US, MISERABLY
SO IT’S NOW UP TO US
TO HOLD GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABLE
USING ANY MEANS NECESSARY

Greg Gutfeld of Fox News has called out some fellow conservatives for lauding the email leaks made widely available by Julian Assange and WikiLeaks.

“What does it say when you embrace one hack because it hurts someone, but not another. Doesn’t that make you a hack, too?”

Hacking is a part of modern life. We need to embrace its benefits while also protecting our stuff.

“All bets, and principles, are off. It’s selfish, deliberate, moral blindness that comes with team-sport politics.”

Greg, it’s not about hurting our political opponents. It’s about holding government and politicians accountable. Since bureaucrats and bureaucracies appear to be dead set on stonewalling investigations and flouting the law, we need WikiLeaks and others willing to shine light on misdeeds now more than ever.

You, along with a few others, such as Andrew Breitbart, have helped bring conservatism back to life. And for that I am thankful. So many, particularly Establishment types, have ruined the brand with their cozy backroom deals and Big Government largess.

The corrupt State has been willingly abetted by the media, so much so that figures like Julian Assange are now an essential part of democracy. He is the whistleblower who exposes the corrupt deeds of the arrogant, the abusive, the powerful. He is the man, the latest incarnation, standing athwart history yelling, “Stop!”

With the media failing miserably to their jobs, hackers are becoming an important factor in keeping Big Brother accountable.
