As I’ve done for more than seventeen 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. Contact me at email@example.com. Read about or order my book The Age of WikiLeaks in print or as an e-book., or brand-new Bradley Manning: Truth and Consequences as e-book here and print here
UPDATED: Weekend edition of this blog.
8:40 Great debate coming tomorrow, in a few hours, watch a live video stream from SKUP-2011, the annual conference of Norway’s investigative journalists in Tønsberg, Norway, at 10.30 GMT. "Two sides of the story" : Nick Davies & David Leigh of the Guardian (now big critics of Assange) meets Kristinn Hrafnsson, Wikileaks.
2:20 We posted last night but if you missed: Now we’re really "getting down" to the important stuff — leaked video of alleged Assange on the dance floor!
2:05 And now a word from our sponsor: My new book, Bradley Manning: Truth and Consequences, just published as e-book here and print here. Remember, e-book nowadays also means phones, iPad, PC reading, etc. Plus, first excerpt from the book (“From Oklahoma to Baghdad to Prison”) right here.
2:00 New podcast interview with me here, at about the 1:04 mark, they say.
10:50 This is NOT an April Fool’s joke: There’s an online campaign underway to get Lady Gaga to speak up for Bradley Manning due to the "special role" she played in helping him allegedly leak all those documents to WikiLeaks. If you’ve forgotten, he claimed, in the chat logs, that he used a thumb drive that supposedly held Lady Gaga songs as his "cover." See report on that here. Group at Brave Little Monster is getting people to send her tweets or Facebook message imploring her to act…
10:40 With a name like Motley Fool, you had to figure the long-running investor outfit would take advantage of April 1 to have some fun, and they do so via MSNBC by way of an alleged WikiLeaks "leak."
9:35 My new piece at The Nation on the parts left out of the PBS Frontline segment on Bradley Manning this week.
