Bradley Manning Tried to Leak to the New York Times and Washington Post Before Turning to Wikileaks

I've said it before and I'll say it again. The New York Times of today
would have sat on the Pentagon Papers. Like they sat on warrant less
wiretapping. Like they sat on this. And for that matter, like they
refused to call well established (in law and historical reporting)
torture methods "torture" when the Bush administration made them

The Times is a well-written paper and a lot of extremely talented
people work there. But the management of the paper is as
establishment as it gets. This is not a paper that speaks truth to

So enjoy it for what it is, but never imagine you're as well informed
as you should be.
