Posted on November 28, 2011


The controversial new documentary “WikiLeaks: Secrets and Lies” airs Tuesday, November 29 (incidentally, this blog editor’s birthday) on Britain’s Channel 4 TV. Channel 4 presents its feature as

“the definitive account of the ‘wiki-saga,’ featuring the first major television interview with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.

“This is the story of Wikieaks told by the people involved: sulphurous, personal and moving, it documents history in the making and the frontier of new technology and journalism.

“It’s also a story of human emotions clashing with the advent of new technologies, summed up in the words of Guardian journalist Nick Davies as ‘a Greek tragedy… as triumph was turned into disaster through the actions of one man.'”

According to the Huffington Post, “[t]he documentary explores the details of Assange’s founding of Wikileaks, his fallouts over the leaked U.S. State Department cables, and the sexual assault accusations that are still swirling around him.”
