Today’s cartoon asks the question “If an American diplomat speaks in a forest and there’s nobody from Wikileaks to leak us the truth, is there a noise?”
So what’s next? Will the Americans be smart enough to start covertly feeding bogus leaks to leak sites? I say leak sites because the “latest news” is that some Wikileaks people have jumped ship and are about to set up a rival leak site to Wikileaks. It will be called Openleaks. At the time of this writing they are not “up” yet, but the URL is Openleaks.org.
But can we believe the “latest news”? Wikileaks isn’t leaking anything about it. And then again, why do we believe that Wikileaks’ leaks are true?
