WikiLeaks Threatens To Create Dossier Of Celebrities' Sensitive Personal Information — Scary Details HERE

Filed under: Icky Icky PooTech TalkTwitterScary!

This sounds really, really wrong.

On Friday, Julian Assange's WikiLeaks revealed plans to possibly create a dossier of sensitive information on Twitter's verified accounts. Verified accounts typically belong to celebrities, high-ranking officials, and other people of prominence.

As for what info would be included in the index, the organization cited "family/job/financial/housing relationships." The group explained they'd use the data to create a "metric to understand influence networks based on proximity graphs."

Hmmm…

In response to the announcement, Twitter FLIPPED OUT and slammed WikiLeaks for its hypocrisy.

You can see a couple of examples (below):

Donald Trump Supporters Are Boycotting Star Wars: Rogue One Because Of Supposed Anti-Trump Scenes 'Calling Him A Racist'! WTF?

no title

It seems like everything is being dragged into the aftermath of the U.S. election, and the upcoming Star Wars spinoff is no exception.

A week before the release of Rogue One, Donald Trump supporters started to call for a boycott of the film on Twitter with the hashtag #DumpStarWars.

The source of the boycott appears to be a series of tweets from the film's writer Chris Weitz in early November, in which he compares Trump's uprising to the ultimate villains in the Star Wars universe, writing:

"Please note that the Empire is a white supremacist (human) organization."

Weitz has since deleted the tweet and has apologized, but his on-the-nose comparison was enough to spark online outrage from Trump supporters who are calling the film "anti-Donald Trump" (and "feminist propaganda" for daring to have a female lead).

The viral lynch mob was inflamed by unsubstantiated claims that new scenes were added to the sci-fi adventure that brand the president-elect a racist:

Steven Spielberg Working On WikiLeaks Film

Wowsa! WikiLeaks creator Julian Assange must be going nuts over this news!

First, the website gets nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize and NOW there's a movie about it in the works.

As source material for the film, Steven Spielberg has purchased the rights to WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange's War on Secrecy (published by Guardian Books). The book "details the life of Assange, the creation of the site in 2006 and the leaks of classified documents."

Here's what editor-in-chief of Guardian News & Media Alan Rusbridger had to say about the project:

"It's Woodward and Bernstein meets Stieg Larsson meets Jason Bourne. Plus the odd moment of sheer farce and, in Julian Assange, a compelling character who goes beyond what any Hollywood scriptwriter would dare to invent."

Sounds like it could definitely be an interesting and controversial project. We're intrigued.

Would U like to see a film about WikiLeaks?

Wow! WikiLeaks Gets Nobel Peace Prize Nom!

Filed under: PolitikAwardz

wikileaks founder nominated for nobel peace prize

This sounds like a delightfully controversial choice by the Norwegian Nobel Committee.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange must be excited to learn that his website has been given the tremendous honor of being nominated for the 2011 Nobel Peace Prize.

Here's what legislator Snorre Valen from Norway's Socialist Left Party had to say about his WikiLeaks nomination:

"I think it is important to raise a debate about freedom of expression and that truth is always the first casualty in war. WikiLeaks wants to make governments accountable for their actions and that contributes to peace."

Leading "Nobel-watcher" Kristian Harpsviken doesn't believe WikiLeaks will win the award. Here's what he had to say about it:

"The reason I think it's unlikely is that there has been so much criticism of WikiLeaks, not least how they have handled identification issues of people in the documents. I don't think it quite does the trick."

There certainly has been lots of controversy surrounding WikiLeaks. We were surprised to even see it get nominated!

It'd be making one hell of a statement against censorship if they win the prize.

Do U think WikiLeaks has a chance at winning the Nobel Peace Prize?
