Assange & The Guardian's Complicated Relations

Sonny Yatsen (603655) writes "Vanity Fair has published an interesting behind-the-scenes look at the unlikely and tumultuous working relationship between Wikileak's Julian Assange and The Guardian as the Iraq War Logs were being published. The piece highlights the differences and conflicts between the Guardian's journalistic standards and Wikileak's transparency. Particularly interesting is the revelation that Julian Assange threatened to sue The Guardian if they publish a portion of Iraq War Logs leaked to them by a disgruntled Wikileaks volunteer, claiming "he owned the information and had a financial interest in how and when it was released.""
