Political. Nerdy. Blasphemous. What could go wrong?

Wikileaks

A friend of mine who doesn't really follow politics much, but who knows I'm a political junkie, contacted me about a scary headline he saw relating to Hillary Clinton's emails and asked me if it was true. He's awesome. Critical thought and skepticism are sorely lacking today and I give major credit to those who are willing to double-check information.

Here's the big scary headline:

Yesterday, I wrote about how the Wikileaks email dumps aren't actually filled with tons of scandals, but they are just used to generate scandalous headlines. I keep challenging people on Twitter to provide me the big smoking gun. Show me the email that is the most damaging. Show me the email that will finally convince me of the horrible actions of Hillary Clinton.

Take a moment to read this great article, Inside The Strange, Paranoid World Of Julian Assange, from James Ball who was a previous member of Wikileaks.

When Wikileaks was doing targeted releases and working with journalists to ensure the integrity of releases, I felt they were trying to achieve a good goal, even if it came with a price.
