Secrecy and What Daniel Ellsberg Has Taught the Government


Secrecy and What Daniel Ellsberg Has Taught the Government


John Glaser, Antiwar.com, 10 June 2011

On June 23, 1971, in an interview with CBS News anchor Walter Cronkite, you said, ”I think the lesson is that the people of this country can’t afford to let the President run the country by himself, even foreign affairs, without the help of Congress, without the help of the public. I think we cannot let the officials of the Executive Branch determine for us what it is that the public needs to know about how well and how they are discharging their functions.” How concerned are you that elected officials haven’t learned those lessons?

#WIKILEAKS #mediadebate #datajournalism #isassangeajournalist ~ The Frontline Club “On the Media” debate, 11 January 2011 [http://bit.ly/evOlDB]


We never know for certain what another person is really thinking. Even if they chose to tell us, we can never know whether they’re telling the truth, or the whole truth. And by the same token nobody can can know our thoughts as we can know them.

#INTERNET #WEB #WIKILEAKS #politics #media #Guardian ~ The Man Who Spilled the Secrets [http://bit.ly/ghH31j]


The ideal role of a journalistic outlet, in Assange’s view, is to be a passive conduit for reality, or at least for slivers of reality, with as little intervention as possible—no editing, no contextualizing, no explanations, no thinking, no weighing of one person’s claims against another’s, no regard for consequences. The technology that Assange has worked on for most of his career possesses immense capabilities, and cannot be controlled by a single institution or voice. It is perhaps for this reason that WikiLeaks—ultimately replaceable by the next technologically savvy anarchist—is so disturbing to so many.
