As I’ve done for more than sixteen 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. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.
UPDATE: Weekend edition of this blog here.
9:25 Summary, video of WikiLeaks and Anxiety panel at NYU Law School, Jay Rosen, others.
8:45 EFF and the former WikiLeaks supporters appeal that judge’s ruling forcing Twitter to give up info on them.
"The litigation over the Twitter data is the first public skirmish in the government’s criminal investigation of WikiLeaks’s leader, Julian Assange, and others who may have helped leak diplomatic cables and classified military documents through the WikiLeaks website."
3:55 This might be slowest weekday yet — for WikiLeaks, in any case — so off to a movie, see you tonight. Jeremy Scahill on Bill Maher’s HBO show, I am told. On the other hand: David Brooks. In other news, Bob Herbert leaving the NYT.
1:05 Epic Foreign Policy compilation of "casualties" and near-casualties — losers — since Cablegate began. Not all what you’d think, they point out. For example, "the one who signed off on a series of withering Silvio Berlusconi portraits in the U.S. Embassy in Rome doesn’t appear to have gone anywhere."
11:50 Just catching up to this cable that got noticed yesterday, our reaction to Saudi poem mocking Bush in 2006.
10:55 New film based on incident in WikiLeaks’ "Collateral Murder" video from Iraq, showing at Tribeca Film Fest in April. Features Ethan McCord, who carried two of the injured kids away for medical treatment. Director’s statement here. Film clip here. My aricle about McCord earlier this month. (h/t Kevin Gosztola)
