Today Dutch state funded public broadcaster Powned has announced it is providing Julian Assange with free hosting services for Wikileaks (NL) in order to support his efforts to publishing stolen US government files. The public broadcaster has dedicated its Internet server farm to host Wikileaks under its own domain name: powned.tv/wikileaks.
Powned is an offshoot of the popular rightwing blog Geenstijl.nl. They promised to become a Dutch Foxnews by campaigning for Powned with the slogan: “fair and balanced”. They started earlier this year, but seem to follow a much more leftist course than most of its members. So my message to all members who don’t want to support the leftist anti American cause of Julian Assange: now is a good time to quit your membership! Please see how at Amsterdam Post – Powned lidmaatschap opzeggen.
