Politico quotes a Forbes interview with Julian Assange of Wikileaks, where he says he didn’t give the Washington Post early access to their information for this reason:
[…]The Post recently did an article on WikiLeaks which was generally accurate but with one exception–a line in the story which stated that WikiLeaks had been compared to “Baghdad Bob.” That’s a reference to Saddam Hussein’s former information minister, who was a lying propagandist. I’d never heard this allegation before. So I looked for a reference to us being compared to Baghdad Bob and after 20 minutes of searching I found one right wing blogger who had mentioned that phrase on one occasion. That’s not quality journalism.[…]
Then they call him a liar: “But a search through the Post archives reveals no such story.”
That’s how you win the morning. (via)
Update: Finally corrected this morning after Glenn Greenwald rubbed their nose in it over the Twitter.
