The Justice Department has all but concluded it will not bring charges against WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange for publishing classified documents because government lawyers said they could not do so without also prosecuting U.S. news organizations and journalists, according to U.S. officials.
So things are looking up for the guy in the Ecuadoran Embassy.
Sure it has. SUUUUUUUURE it has.
The Wikileaks twitter account is vindictively tweeting Rotten Tomatoes stats about The Fifth Estate. Weird tactic.
I agree, it’s almost hysterical and makes them look like vindictive little kids. They’ve been on whatever the opposite of a roll is lately. The movie was getting LOWER ratings before they started tweeting about it.

"We might think that the Internet is a place where we are all equals and we all communicate. It is a new civilian world, a new world where we can develop our ideas and understandings of how planet earth actual works. Where in some sense we are all equal because we can all communicate to everyone. They may not want to listen… but if they do they can send it to anyone. But it is not an equal place. This week’s revelations have proven that it is very far from an equal place, and it is very far from a civilian place.
The Internet has been transformed into a militarily occupied state. When all of our private communications, heart felt, the inner core of our life, communications between boyfriends and girlfriends, husbands and wives, sons and daughters; between business partners, even between bureaucracies and states… when all those communications are swept up, hovered up into a vast collection apparatus, indexed and stored for all time available only to a select few… then we are in the situation where we have a tank on the street of the inner core of our lives, where we have a soldier under our bed listening to everything that a husband and wife says to one another when they are communicating by email or sms.
The penetration of the digital on civilian life is also the penetration of the military and intelligence agencies of civilian life.”

That’s old skool!
It is getting to the point where the mark of international distinction and service to humanity is no longer the Nobel Peace Prize, but an espionage indictment from the US Department of Justice.
