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!
