8:55 Ha, Bill Keller has to post humiliating correction to his column today linking Assange to James O’Keefe. Thought O’Keefe posed as the PBS donor. Fun.
7:30 They’re now up to 284 entries in the WikiLeaks t-shirt contest. See them all here.
7:25 More on the appeal of ruling that forces Twitter to give up info on WikiLeaks-connected people, plus PDF of appeal.
11:30 Just announced: PBS Frontline doing "The Private Life of Bradley Manning" on March 29, with look at his early years. Excerpt from my book on same subject: right here. It quotes from his father in the Frontline show.
10:00 More fun in India over continuing WikiLeaks revelations, slams back and forth.
9:50 Progressive Democrats of America (PDA) back Manning, and fund raise.
8:55 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.
* SATURDAY *
8:55 This is one of my favorite WikiLeaks stories ever. Comes from Nigeria. Great summary of past revelations there—and then the editor reveals that he shows up in one cable and while embarrassing disclosure, he is going ahead and publishing it. And wants to hire US diplomat as reporter. Just read it.
6:35 Pathethic, laughable, ungrateful Sunday NYT column by Bill Keller, who equates Assange with James O’Keefe, and complains that the media is “beset” by Assange—after his paper publishes hundreds of pages of scoops based totally on WikiLeaks, and continues to quote from cables on front page to this day. And note his offhand reference to “some reporting before the war in Iraq that should have dug deeper and been more skeptical about the supposed weapons of mass destruction”—and linking that to a correction about Ivana Trump. Also no reference to his longtime support for Judy Miller.
