Julian Assange is Not a Journalist Because.......

Apparently Julian Assange is not considered to be considered a journalist by the U.S. State Department because.......he has a political objective!  Gasp!

By this standard the writers for the liberal-left The Nation, and Mother Jones and the right-wing conservative rags National Review and The Weekly Standard cannot be considered "journalists."  

But seriously, there is a better reason why Assange is not a journalist.  Because he shares all of his scoops and sources with many other journalists and media organizations.  Is that anyway to build a career in journalism?
