New York Times December 21, 2012 CORRECTION
“An article on Thursday about the coming documentary “We Steal Secrets” ...referred imprecisely to a comment that Alex Gibney, the maker of “We Steal Secrets,” says in the film about Mr. Assange’s demands for money in exchange for collaborating on it. While he says that he rejected the demands, and that the market rate for an interview was $1 million, he does not specifically say that he rejected a demand from Mr. Assange for a $1 million fee for an interview.”
The only person currently associated with WikiLeaks whom Gibney interviewed was Baroness Helena Kennedy, QC. Kennedy said her interview had been misleadingly edited to remove the context of her remarks. She states she "did not expect that he [Gibney] would fillet my interview... I regret thinking I could present a sensible perspective."

If you would like to understand Assange, the best way is to listen to him yourself. Here he talks about government surveillance of the Internet.
What do you think? Can you trust your own thinking?
