Wikileaks

I’ve already gotten the feeling that Julian Assange and Wikileaks are kind of full of shit, but this article on the register explains why even the ‘content’ they unearth and the idea that they herald a radical new journalism is kind of full of shit too. 

(The tl;dr: Afghanistan papers don’t seem to reveal anything particularly juicy, wikileaks hasn’t authenticated any of it anyway, and has only released it to select agencies that give them favorable press. Also, salacious factoid-based revelations aren’t news or “the future” of good news)
