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. For more follow me on Twitter. Read about my latest book here .
10:40 WikiLeaks press release offers condolences on Tucson shootings and points out the many threats of violence, death and assassination against Assange and others connected to their org. Closes with, “We call on US authorities and others to protect the rule of law by aggressively prosecuting these and similar incitements to kill. A civil nation of laws can not have prominent members of society constantly calling for the murder and assassination of other individuals or groups.”
9:20 Ryan Singel at Wired: Twitter’s response to the DOJ move should be "industry’s standard."
7:35 This is rich: Woman who apparently (see below) registered JulianAssangeMustDie as a domain name does joint podcasts with… Andrew Malcolm, the former Laura Bush aide and longtime L.A. Times blogger. "Malcolm & Melissa."
7:30 For a walk down memory lane, check out my WikiLeaks blogging more than six weeks ago — on Day 1. As always, starts at bottom. A couple of hours of run-up speculation and then the first, well-coordinated, media coverage of big doc dump in early afternoon.
6:55 State Dept. "spokesman" Crowley questioned several times on DOJ vs. Twitter and Iceland ministry calling in U.S. Ambassador. Crowley manages to say little eight different ways. (h/t @Asher_Wolf)
6:20 Clouthier (see below) recently wrote that the "ultimate truth" is: Obama is a "lazy moron."
5:55 More from @EvgenyMorozov who has been on this all day: "Wow! julianassangemustdie.com is registered to melissaclouthier.com. Clouthier is a blogger for RightWingNews and StopTheACLU." Proof here. She hasn’t added anything to her site since October but tweets @Melissatweets.
5:30 Big news, my Twitter source who works for the Aftenposten paper in Norway, tweets for my attention: "Aftenposten shares full Cablegate dump with Danish newspaper Politiken." Have to trust without translation but he’s always been on the money.
