“Take on one of us . . . you take on all of us”

31 January 2011

A very interesting article in the Guardian (UK) about WikiLeaks and Julian Assange.

It’s rather long but worth reading.  I hadn’t known for instance that 5 of the world’s leading newspapers have collaborated on the release of information to protect themselves from prosecution. 

“It would be virtually impossible to prosecute Assange for the act of publication of the war logs or state department cables without also putting five editors (The Guardian, The NY Times, Der Spiegel, Le Monde and El Pais)  in the dock. That would be the media case of the century.”

It’s going to be very interesting to see how this all plays out.
