I’m not sure that the information leaked by WikiLeaks actually adds anything to the world. I’m not sure there’s a reason that it shouldn’t be secret other than the overall concept that nothing should ever be secret.
Nonetheless, I’m very, very uncomfortable that Joe Liberman can use his status as a member of our government to go around and get people to take down content that may in fact be legal, as in this deal with Tableau Software’s visualizations of leak data.
That smells like a soft kind of censorship to me, and that’s just wrong and un-American. But then I think little of Liberman anyway, so maybe I shouldn’t be surprised.
