Julian Assange to Stay in Mansion Owned by UK Journo's Parents

Poor Julian Assange. He has celebrities lining up donations to get him out of a British jail, and now, the Atlantic reports, he'll be staying at a massive Kent Suffolk manor owned by, you guessed it, a prominent British journalist (well, his parents, really).

So once again we're obliged to ask: why are journalists jumping at the chance to defend a man whose stated objective is pure opacity in government?

And, more importantly, what kind of news do you have to report to live in a mansion like this?
