LONDON: In an exclusive interview with the British magazine, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange leveled a threat against the mainstream news media.
In the interview, Assange claims that if he is indicted by the United States, he will release so-called “insurance” cables.
"There are 504 U.S. embassy cables on one broadcasting organization and there are cables on Murdoch and News Corp.," Assange said. He added that should he be indicted, the press should be worried that the protection provided to them by the First Amendment is fading.
