Wikileaks: The Book of Revelations? Not if you read the MSM By William Bowles

29 December, 2010 — Strategic Culture Foundation

The revelations come thick and fast, or faster than they were but aside from the odd mention, you wouldn’t know it if you relied on the mainstream media.

There is no secrecy on the Internet, John Young warned.

‘In terms of their being able to see everything that we are doing, we know that we cannot keep any secrets about our site and we tell our readers, ‘You should not expect us to protect you, because we are being watched and every other site is being watched, just like WikiLeaks is being watched,’’ he said. ‘There’s no secrecy on the Internet – that’s the lesson we’ve learned and we are now trying to spread that.’
