Secrecy and journalism
Paul Knox asks, as a news organization, what do you actually do when someone dumps 250,000 secret diplomatic cables on your electronic doorstep?

"Manning has a fence around him, literally and figuratively. He's doing nothing new, and there's nothing new other people -- other than perhaps some pundits -- are saying about him. He's dried up. Assange is a continuing source of new news."
Reader Comment: Brian Kilgore
Post: What about Manning? 

"What you're really saying, Brian, is that Assange is a much easier and more accessible story. He's not hard work. He rolls it out all for us. He appeals to the stenographer in us. An enterprising journalist might find Manning to be the much better story. Personally, that's what I'm waiting for."
