Finally: hear Bradley Manning in his own voice — (updated below) The court-martial proceeding of Bradley Manning has, rather ironically, been shrouded in extreme secrecy, often exceeding even that which prevails at Guantanamo military commissions. This secrecy prompted the Center for Constitutional Rights to commence formal legal action on behalf of several journalists and activists, including myself, to compel greater transparency.

FOCUS: Glenn Greenwald and Naomi Klein Discuss the Podesta Emails — Greenwald writes: "Author and activist Naomi Klein believes there are serious threats to personal privacy and other critical political values posed by hacks of this sort, particularly when accompanied by the indiscriminate publication of someone's personal emails." Glenn Greenwald and Naomi Klein.

Is Disclosure of Podesta’s Emails a Step Too Far? A Conversation with Naomi Klein — Some news organizations, including the Intercept, have devoted substantial resources to reporting on the newsworthy aspects of the archive of emails of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta that was published last week by WikiLeaks. Numerous documents from that archive have shed considerable light on the thought processes and previously secret behavior of top Clinton campaign aides and often the candidate herself.

U.S. Drops to 49th in World Press Freedom Rankings, Worst Since Obama Became President — Each year, Reporters Without Borders issues a worldwide ranking of nations based on the extent to which they protect or abridge press freedom. The group's 2015 ranking was released this morning, and the United States is ranked 49th. That is the lowest ranking ever during the Obama presidency, and the second-lowest ranking for the U.S.

On WikiLeaks, Journalism, and Privacy: Reporting on the Podesta Archive is an Easy Call — For years, WikiLeaks has been publishing massive troves of documents online - usually taken without authorization from powerful institutions and then given to the group to publish - while news outlets report on their relevant content.

Dem Echo Chamber Recasts Tough Truths as Putin Plots | RealClearPolitics

The Intercept — But while Donald Trump's candidacy poses grave dangers, so does group-think righteousness, particularly when it engulfs those with the greatest influence. The problem is that none of this is going to vanish after the election.

In the Democratic Echo Chamber, Inconvenient Truths Are Recast as Putin Plots — Donald Trump, for reasons I've repeatedly pointed out, is an extremist, despicable and dangerous candidate, and his almost-certain humiliating defeat is less than a month away. So I realize there is little appetite in certain circles for critiques of any of the tawdry and sometimes fraudulent journalistic claims and tactics being deployed to further that goal.

The Jeffrey Goldberg Media — In a stunning display of self-unawareness, The Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg pointed to last week's forced "resignation" by Dave Weigel from The Washington Post as evidence that the Post, "in its general desperation for page views, now hires people who came up in journalism without much adult supervision, and without the proper amount of toilet-training."

U.S. and U.K. Continue to Actively Participate in Saudi War Crimes, Targeting of Yemeni Civilians — From the start of the hideous Saudi bombing campaign against Yemen 18 months ago, two countries have played active, vital roles in enabling the carnage: the U.S. and UK. The atrocities committed by the Saudis would have been impossible without their steadfast, aggressive support.

@alexremington @digiphile No, it doesn't remotely mean that, which is why the WashPost is reporting on the content of these emails.

@jonathanshainin How could it not show the public? It's literally letting the public see for themselves who says what to whom.

@mbillips @lhfang @the_intercept Do you object to any stories that reflect negatively on Trump as sensationalistic?

@pindoramense Temendo que Putin quer invadir o Brasil é fobia do tipo mais extremo. Ainda estou rindo sobre isso.
