WikiLeaks Founder Julian Assange's Isolation Deepens

        Some former allies and observers say that after four years
        confined to the Ecuadorean Embassy in London, Mr. Assange is
        alienating former supporters and undermining WikiLeaks'
        relevance. They cite a series of leaks that they say supported
        Russian efforts to disrupt the U.S. election and carelessly
        promoted Turkish government documents exposing the personal
        information of thousands of ordinary citizens.  WikiLeaks "has
        pioneered open government but has now gone off the rails in a
        way that damages the global transparency movement," said Alex
        Howard, a senior analyst at the Sunlight Foundation, a group
        once sympathetic to Wikileaks that backs open-government
        efforts in the U.S.

The correct term is "Internet" NOT "internet" -- please don't 
fall into the trap of using the latter. It's just plain wrong!
