Washington Post on WikiLeaks - nothing to see here

Julian Assange at WikiLeaks today instead of providing the promised Hillary takedown leaks, instead offered a delay.  No October surprise.  Not yet at least.  According to the liberal Washington Post, itès never coming.  Thatès what they want you to believe because, Heaven forbid, Assange actually has something, they don't want anyone to actually be paying attention when it gets revealed.  How absurd.
For weeks, backers of Republican nominee Donald Trump have hyped the tantalizing possibility that the anti-secrecy organization WikiLeaks was on the verge of publishing a set of documents that would doom Hillary Clinton’s chances in November.

...The group’s founder, Julian Assange, did nothing to dampen the enthusiasm, suggesting to Fox News hosts that his scoops could upend the race with documents “associated with the election campaign, some quite unexpected angles, some quite interesting.”

The announcement by WikiLeaks that it would host a major news conference Tuesday only seemed to confirm that the bombshell was ready to burst. The pro-Trump, anti-Clinton media world rippled with fevered speculation.

...Over the course of two hours Tuesday — with the world’s media and bleary-eyed Trump die-hards across the United States tuning in — Assange and other WikiLeaks officials railed against “neo-McCarthyist hysteria,” blasted the mainstream press, appealed for donations and plugged their books (“40 percent off!”).

But what they didn’t do was provide any new information about Clinton — or about anything else, really.

The much-vaunted news conference, as it turned out, was little more than an extended infomercial for WikiLeaks on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of its founding.
Nothing to see here folks, move along.  Notice the denigration of Assange and his attempt to procure donations?  Except Assange still has something to release he claims.

We'll see. The Washington Post seemingly however, has made up its mind.
