Wikileaks - like Twitter - just enough rope to hang yourself?

WikiLeaks Tapes shows up corporate media, celebrates citizen journalists
By Cathy Vogan

The Wikileaks Tapes
Directed by Cathy Vogan
Featuring John Pilger, Noam Chomsky, Christine Assange, Daniel Ellsberg, Mary Kostakidis, Senator Scott Lundlam, Julian Morrow & many more

Two-disc DVD

That was the advert for Cathy Vogan's new two-disc DVD The Wikileaks Tapes.

And it got me to wondering, "Like TWITTER, which has seen so many employees 'hanging themselves in public' with their gaddamd Free Speech, has WIKILEAKS just become a place where 'those who want to share the truth' (say, like Bradley Manning) can be publicly shamed for their CRIMES AGAINST THE CORPORATE WAR MACHINE?"

Is this new-found 'citizen journalism' just allowing an individual ENOUGH ROPE TO HANG THEMSELVES?

Is Wikileaks safe to whistleblow to?
Is Twitter safe to tweet on?

Seriously (!)

NINE DAYS LATER UPDATE: and they've announced 'guidelines' so that people don't incriminate themselves on Twitter and Facebook and other Forums. But why is this even an issue?  Where the fuck did oiur free speech go, people? Get on your backs and piss on your corporate-drone stomachs. You'll soon be a THOUGHT CRIMINAL, it's in the schedule.
