Just to be clear, this is not 'The Chicago Tribune' saying this, it's John Kass, a well known columnist for the Tribune who tends to lean rather more to the right than most of Chicago. A lot of liberals that I know around town (I live in the Chicago area) hate the guy. Me, I think he's a good writer and entertaining, sometimes right, sometimes wrong.
In this case, I think John Kass is essentially correct, but nothing will happen, as usual. Sides have already been picked, no one's going to switch sides this close to game time...

I find it hilarious that even the Chicago Tribune does not understand Wikileaks correctly.
They suggest in the piece that Wikileaks is not a neutral organisation, as if it hacked the data itself, rather than having received it and merely distributed it.
Of course, I would suggest this is all a bit of gamesmanship on the part of the author of the piece, but it's still absolute codswallop.
In my view a thing can only be correct, or incorrect. If it is incorrect at all, it is totally incorrect, and that renders this article total nonsense therefore.
That being said, things do look bad for Hilary Clinton! Now, if we could get rid of Trump before Nov 8th as well, my friends across the pond might have a hope in hell of assembling a government that does not look like a scat flinging match at a facility for the criminally insane.
