As I’ve done for over six months (with one week off recently), 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 Monday edition of this blog here.
9:55 Don Hazen of Alternet says recent story there on five WikiLeaks stories overlooked was most popular one there in months…
9:40 As I noted in my review (see below), a low point of the CNN doc on WikiLeaks was Gen. Kimmit explicitly blaming Reuters photog for getting killed by trigger-happy US gunners in Iraq. And with no pushback from CNN correspondent Larsen. Tonight Larsen tweeted that he did push back in interviews with the general but it all got edited out. As if he had no say in that.
