As I’ve done for nearly six months, I’m updating news and views on all things WikiLeaks and Bradley Manning all day, with new items added at the top. All times ET. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Read about my books The Age of WikiLeaks in print or as an e-book, and Bradley Manning: Truth and Consequences as e-book here and print here.
UPDATE: The Tuesday edition of this blog here.
8:30 Frontline site appears back to normal—for now. See below for the wild hacking of past day.
5:50 A correspondent e-mails: “Thought you’d like to know that Julian Assange has been appearing in a TV ad running in Ireland today. In the ad, he says that the Ireland Wikileaks cables will be published this week in the Irish Independent. There’s also this tweet from Irish Independent journalist: http://twitter.com/#!/fionnansheahan/status/75290599019913216 .”
5:20 After Frontline and PBS issue statement on hacking (se below)—disappears and hacked again.
3:35 PBS and Frontline issue statement denouncing hacking of their site, calling it “chilling,” but say nothing essential compromised. However, Frontline chooses to also use this as a defense of its WikILeaks show. Note wording: program got both praise and criticism but critics were “supporters” of Manning and Assange, not anyone with legit journalist issues. Also, they suggest they sought out comments from Assange and David House—when what actually happened was that they weighed in out of the blue during an online chat.
9:30 More on the PBS hack, from Parmy Olson at Forbes. Before the fake Tupac story was taken down it had gotten a lot of “likes.” Hacker, not affilitated with Anonymous (as reporter earlier), claims he/she was not happy with that Frontline WikIleaks saga. Also posted some user names and more )see below)..
9:20 My book The Age of WikiLeaks in print or as an e-book, or Bradley Manning: Truth and Consequences as e-book here and print here, both hailed by Glenn Greenwald, Dan Ellsberg, Bill Moyers, Amy Goodman.
