The Guardian has written a book about its “partnership” with WikiLeaks, Journalism.co.uk reported. The book, “WikiLeaks: Inside Julian Assange’s war on secrecy,” will be published next month by “Guardian News and Media’s publishing division Guardian Books.”
“The journalists behind the book include investigations editor David Leigh and Luke Harding, the paper’s Moscow correspondent,” Journalism.co.uk wrote.
According to Journalism.co.uk, Leigh explained:
“The real story of WikiLeaks has yet to be told and this book will lift the lid on the Guardian’s unique partnership with Julian Assange, one of the world’s most controversial figures.”
“Readers will have a ringside seat as the extraordinary twists and turns of the WikiLeaks story unfold. It’s a story of secret document dumps, spying and sex allegations, written by Guardian journalists who worked with Assange and followed his mission every step of the way. This book will bring you as close to the unvarnished truth as you’re likely to get.”
As iMediaEthics wrote in December, Assange signed a book deal himself.
