Bradley Manning: An Alternate History

Friday, March 15, 2013


Before sending hundreds of thousands of classified documents to Wikileaks, Bradley Manning says he tried to give those same documents to the New York Times. The Times, he says, never returned his call. Brooke speaks with Bill Keller, New York Times Op-Ed columnist and former Executive Editor, who wondered this week how the Manning story would be different if the Times had worked with him directly.

What was the oath or affirmation?

Keller was worried about Wikileaks' attitude towards the US? Skepticism against all administrations & their actions used to be the NY Times' job. But things changed at the Times post-Reagan & especially post-Keller when the NYT became little more than a stenographer for the GW Bush administration.
