Basically, they just removed the 'we didn't know' and 'honest belief' defences for media that chooses to run the 'leaks' planted by the US government as it desperately tries to discredit Assange as part of the effort to frame Russia for the 'crimes' of the American oligarchy (like meddling/rigging the Presidential election).

Gross hypocrisy from Wikileaks and Assange. Interestingly, the Guardian used to champion Assange and his running away to the Ecuadorian embassy, they had a shift in opinion a year or so back. The scales must have fell from their eyes.

Wikileaks does some good and it has unknowingly been an agent for multiple countries. It is impossible to know what is actual, unmodified, documents and what has been slightly modified before published by Wikileaks.

Misinformation campaigns know that to be most effective, most of the data inside must be true, but by tweaking less than 10%, those 10% of untrue claims added/modified, can be terrible to the entity impacted by those untrue aspects.

Govts should never get 100% trust, but leaked data should always be suspected too.

The best lies are those sandwiched between truths
