By now, I think my views on how WikiLeaks is ran, who is running it, and its double standards on transparency are not exactly a secret. While it was churning out seemingly damning evidence of malfeasance by big government and military alliances — even when the sources for all of this evidence were less than trustworthy — it recieved a steady stream of support and Assange was embraced as a soon-to-be martyr even as he hosted a TV show for the Kremlin’s benefit. But in his ongoing quest for power and fame, Assange finally went too far and upset his most stalwart and committed ally, the hordes of Anonymous, with what looked like a flimsy paywall. Upset that WikiLeaks "has become the Julian Assange Show," the collective’s IRC channel expressed just how displeased the anons were by telling organization to "go die in a fire." Ouch. Though can we all be really bluntly honest for a moment? Since when has WikiLeaks been anything other than a series of episodes of the Julian Assange vs. The World Show in which our self-created hero has been trying to do good things for questionable reasons and let his ego get the best of him?
