Hero. Traitor. Crusader. Criminal. Journalist. Rogue. The many conflicting words people use in reference to the enigmatic Wikileaks founder Julian Assange are legion. Following his forced removal from the Ecuadorian embassy in the U.K., people from all corners of the media have either rejoiced with contemptuous schadenfreude or mourned in regretful sorrow.
Over at Fox News, Judge Andrew Napolitano openly hailed the Wikileaks founder a "hero" for using his organization to publish information the "world had the right to see."
"I have to tell you, in my opinion, Julian Assange is a hero," said Napolitano on "Fox & Friends." "What he published was truthful information that the American public and the world had the right to see."
