Wikileaks Paradox

leave a comment »

Julian Assange at New Media Days 09 in Copenhagen.

is this paradox? we are talking about many kinds of freedom. we are talking about freedom of the press, we are talking about internet freedom. we are listening to the haystak gossip. but, this is the paradox. all the kinds of freedom just don’t apply for wikileaks. the rolling stone make a good point.

Listen: You don’t have to approve of Assange or his political views; you can even believe he’s a sex criminal. It doesn’t matter. What’s at stake here isn’t the right of one flouncy Australian expat to embarrass a superpower. It’s freedom of the press. And it’s a dark day for journalists everywhere when the imperatives of government secrecy begin to triumph over our First Amendment.
