Here we have an excellent example of authentic journalism. The Author does a splendid job of thoroughly examining the referenced issue with a merciless and unyielding weather eye. Not a single aspect of the matter escapes his investigative gaze. Dispensing with caterwauling appeals to conscience or emotional suasion, the Author's laser-like focus brings all the quotes, commentary, and sourcing pointedly to bear on the crux of the topic. An informative and interesting read as regards jurisprudence alone and a decidedly worthwhile read overall. Five stars!

Well Sourced

Well written article on an important subject. Assange has been subjected to a sustained campaign of character assassination and persecution. His treatment in the courtroom is just the latest assault on him by the British state.

Great write up, without any plainly obvious injected bias, including good quotes from reputable sources. They did not touch on the opposite side of the discussion, which would be any arguments for legitimate reasons to use the glass box; however, that would be my only short coming of this piece, and the reason for the deduction.

Great Context

Overall, a fantastic bit of context on Assange's defense and ongoing trial. My only criticism is that I wish author Kevin Gosztola provided a source to go along with this statement: "What is said may be overheard by microphones, a concern for Assange given the espionage operation that was conducted by a Spanish security company that targeted him on behalf of the CIA while he was in the Ecuador embassy."
