As I’ve done for more than 19 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. 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: Here’s the Wednesday edition of this blog.
9:45 Attendee at that Assange "debate" in London over the weekend hits The Guardian’s coverage of it.
7:50 Bradley Manning climbs from 26th to 8th in Time mag’s "most influential poll" — between Hitchens and Lady Gaga!
6:05 My colleague Kevin Gosztola interviews Marcy Wheeler about Pentagon leaks after Manning. Why did they wait so long to take action to close gaps? Thumb drives, infection, Lady Gaga, hearings.
5:00 Part II of lengthy Assange interview with The Hindu, which has been breaking WikiLeaks stories for 2 weeks. Closes by thanking Indians for "speaking better English than the English." Earlier: "Most of the early reporting on cables that have released, by our media partners and others, is what I call cable reporting. It is to read a cable, to pick out a few quotes, to say who the principal characters are, and then to publish that story. It is not cable journalism. Cable journalism is to read the cables, correlate them with other cables, with interviews of people, with archive searches, with record searches, and investigate the whole situation. And produce something that is more complex, describes a more complex situation. It takes longer but ultimately is the only way to really get at complex situations or situations that occur multiple times in the cable history."
1:10 I noted yesterday, but here again, FDL campaign "Stop the Secrecy: Join Our Call for Official Visits to Bradley Manning"
11:10 Jacob Appelbaum, WikiLeaks supporter (and one targeted by DOJ for Twitter info), detained yet again at an airport, denied lawyer, and he live-tweeted it. "So of course, I was held until nearly the exact time of my flight departure and then let go with the expectation of sleeping in Houston." All tweets here.
