amidst a long dark hiatus of the blog, THIS

THIS. Glenn Greenwald on “The media’s authoritarianism and WikiLeaks”. Please note Greenwald’s excoriation of the widespread misstatement about what WikiLeaks has actually done: WikiLeaks has only posted 1269 of the 250,000 cables they possess. They have not “posted” or “published” all of them; they have not “dumped” them. They have published a very small, screened selection of the cables; and then provided copies of the entire set to media organizations. It’s just infuriating that almost nobody in the media gets this right.

And, for good measure, THIS, “a brief history of Operation Payback”.
