As I’ve done for more than six weeks, I will be updating news and views on all things WikiLeaks all day, with new items added at the top. All times are ET in USA.
UPDATE: Check out the Wednesday edition of this blog here.
9:50 As we’ve noted, Birgitta Jonsdottir, the Icelandic MP (left) involved in the DOJ / Twitter case is speaking in Canada this week, and here she sits for a lengthy Q & A with Toronto’s Globe & Mail.
9:45 Jason Ching analysis in The National Law Journal: "Bradley Manning will likely be prosecuted and convicted under the Espionage Act, but not Julian Assange because he is joined at the hip with news organizations."
9:40 Security expert, in The Independent, says Assange fears of trial in USA are justified.
7:00 Several Twitter friends have pointed out re: the item below that the original subhed remains unchanged on The Guardian piece with WikiLeaks still the sole recipient of Mugabe’s "gratitude," not mentioning The Guardian. Also, the piece appears at the Comment Is Free part of The Guardian site, Richardson is not a Guardian columnist or op-ed writer in normal sense.
6:15 FInally. In one of the more shameful journalistic episodes in recent days of WikiLeaks action, The Guardian published a piece by James Richardson that charged WL with "collateral murder" in Zimbadwe and earning "the ignominy of Robert Mugabe’s gratitude." Even though many bloggers, including yours truly, quickly pointed out that, in fact, it was The Guardian itself that first published the fateful cable, the paper did nothing to revise or amend or correct the article — for eight days. Finally, today, it happened with a rewritten photo caption, a slight edit, and this at the end of the piece: "This article was amended on 11 January 2011 to clarify the fact that the 2009 cable referred to in this article was placed in the public domain by the Guardian, and not as originally implied by WikiLeaks. The photo caption was also amended to reflect this fact."
5:45 State Dept spokesman Crowley’s presentation today at D.C. seminar, lot of attention to Wikileaks by the end, full transcript here.
