On 60 Minutes tonight Steve Kroft will get us a closer look into the world of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. This interview with Assange will hopefully shed some light on the strange behavior that has been reported by other news outlets after the leaking of several sensitive documents from the US Government. Julian Assange has been charged with rape, had his web site taken down by more than one hosting company, and put in a position where he feels he is a target of the US now. If someone does what Assange did to the US Government, he or she should be looking over their shoulder. Some say Assange did what any Patriot would do by exposing Government corruption but some say he should be put in jail for releasing the data. Either way you look at it, Julian Assange has grabbed a lot of attention by releasing these documents even though most are at least a few years old and have not given the public any really shocking news. In another section of the show, Bob Simon will be going to Brazil to look for Jaguars and of course Andy Rooney will give us his infinite wisdom on today’s topics. Don’t miss 60 Minutes tonight at 7pm eastern time on CBS.

wikileaks has pretty much become irrelevant these days. i hope this stop on the promotional tour, he will reveal shocking hints on what he is going to release next.
the last time a reporter asked him about his legal troubles he walked. hopefully the interview will focus on cables and leaks and not personal legal troubles.

That's a link to the cbsnews blog for the 60 minutes interview. Plenty of interesting perspectives and commentary.
I watched the interview... if Assange is listening, I want him to know I support his work and his perspective 100%, the wikileaks network is TRUE un-slanted unadulterated journalism.
