Wow. Ben Shapiro just went full retard with his unsubstantiated claim that Wikileaks is a Russian front organization. That's defamation, that's libel—unless he can prove it. Did we prosecute the journalists who reported on classified documents leaked to them by then FBI Director James Comey? Of course not, though Comey himself is under investigation for the crime of leaking said documents. (The people who leaked to WikiLeaks were also prosecuted.). Nor is Ben Shapiro, or the US government, an authority on who gets to call themselves "journalist"—that would fundamentally violate the conept of a free press: in order to be free, the press must be free of government control, which would disclude it from deciding who gets to report the news, and what is newsworthy. Ben Shapiro has provided yet another reason why our libel laws need to be reformed.

pir8prod Even if Wikileaks' had made errors in reporting, which happens in every news organization, this doesn't disqualify it as a reliable news source. You'd have to demonstrate they intentionally made false claims with malicious intent, like we see in the left-wing media which relies on anonymous sources, misrepresentations, or selectivity when i comes to presenting facts. For a Conservative, Shapiro is acting a lot like a leftist.

Me It's pretty clear from your comment that you didn't actually read my post.
