The Times’s Dealings With Julian Assange

The New York Times

This is a thrilling story of secrecy, world issues and broken promises. It’s the behind-the-scenes account of how The New York Times got involved and dealt with Wikileaks, its material and its excentric leader, Julian Assange. In an impressively outspoken way, The Times’ executive editor Bill Keller recaps the story, reflects on the protagonists’ behaviours and gives you the juicy inside anecdotes such a big issue inevitably produces. Make no mistake, this text is going to take you a good 30 minutes to read. Take my promise, it’s absolutely worth it.
