The fact that Julian Assange actually is more admired by millions if not billions of people worldwide than the entire U.S. government, should give Uncle Sam a hint that maybe it's the government that's gone from bad to worse in recent decades. In fact Assange's biggest competition for worldwide popularity now is Edward Snowden. Assange has now surfaced with a critical overview of a Wikileaks movie which he did not authorize, as reported in an Oct. 11, 2013 story by Entertainment Weekly.
Just last month the anti-secrecy organization, Wikileaks, leaked a copy of the script of "The Fifth Estate" alongside a memo that called the movie “irresponsible, counterproductive and harmful.” WikiLeaks has sent out a critical tweet of the film, “As WikiLeaks was never consulted about the upcoming Hollywood film on us, we’ve given our advice for free: It’s bad.” In a note to Benedict Cumberbatch, who plays Assange in the movie, Assange stated, the movie is a distorted, biased, wretched work of fiction that’s “based on a deceitful book by someone who has a vendetta against me and my organization.”
Newser has reported, "Assange Calls Out Actor in 'Wretched' WikiLeaks Movie." The fight between Assange and the team behind the upcoming WikiLeaks movie, "The Fifth Estate," has become very personal. Assange has said although he thinks Cumberbatch is a good person, he does not believe that this is a good film.
It is the feeling of Assange that the skills of Cumberbatch are being used to play into the hands of people who are out to remove him and WikiLeaks from the world. On this issue, clearly anyone who is interested in knowing who Assange really is should listen carefully to what he has to say about himself.
