Wikileaks Is Killed: Openleaks.Org Is The Future
ALL hail Openleaks.org. It’s been set up by Wikileaks insiders unhappy with Julian Assange. They say Assange “has weakened the organization”.
As we asked in September: Has Julian Assange’s Fame Wrecked Wikileaks?
Daniel Domscheit-Berg says Wikileaks is “too much focused on one person, and one person is always much weaker than an organization“.
Will he now turn whistleblower and expose Wikileaks? Looks like it. He is publish a book called “Inside WikiLeaks: My Time at the World’s Most Dangerous Website” in Germany in January.
Swedish daily Dagens Nyheter says Openleaks is “without a political agenda except from the dissemination of information to the media, the public, non-profit organizations, trade and union organizations and other participating groups.”
Says Domscheit-Berg on Swedish TV:
“I think the wisest thing to do would have been to do this slowly, step by step, to grow the project. That did not happen.”
He says Wikielaks out everything it had into the cables dump. He goes on to damn the secretive Assange:
“If you preach transparency to everyone else, you have to be transparent yourself. You have to fulfil the same standards that you expect from others. And I think that’s where we’ve not been heading in the same direction philosophically anymore.”
Is this the beginning of the end for Wikileaks, or the start of a new freer media?
