As I’ve done for more than seven 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. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Information on some of my books here.
UPDATE: Go to Wednesday’s live-blog here.
10:55 Ha, just got email from a gentleman inspired by the 9:39 post just below: "I am new to your site and love the important coverage of wikileaks especially the links, want to help any way i can and i was hoping you might know someone that can put this domain to good use. i have it for sale at sedo.com but would transfer it to any independent knowlegeable journalists/bloggers that want to cover this story and could use a good domain to get the word out." The domain, he says, is: YouSuckBoa.
9:39 Well, Bank of America was a little too slow getting to one domain name (see item below): BankofAmericaSuck is up and running with pro-WikiLeaks articles, links and video. (h/t @emirjame at Twitter).
7:50 The Center for Investigative Reporting looks at Bank of America secretly buying up domain names to counter WIkiLeaks criticism. This goes beyond the first words about this last month.
7:48 Marcy Wheeler on the Reuters scoop below. When the truth "lies."
4:20 Reuters’ Mark Hosenball with quite a revelation: "Internal U.S. government reviews have determined that a mass leak of diplomatic cables caused only limited damage to U.S. interests abroad, despite the Obama administration’s public statements to the contrary. A congressional official briefed on the reviews said the administration felt compelled to say publicly that the revelations had seriously damaged American interests in order to bolster legal efforts to shut down the WikiLeaks website and bring charges against the leakers. ‘I think they just want to present the toughest front they can muster,’ the official said.
