The Guardian's Betrayal of Bradley Manning

Pseudo-leftist UK tabloid rag "The Guardian" shows itself to be just another mouthpiece of the pro-war establisment media. Murdoch would be proud.

The Guardian has a history of betraying sources, for example Sarah Tisdall https://t.co/zFhQ0TMG

Bradley Manning wins Guarrdian Person of the Year with a crushing 70% of the vote--despite Guardian bias http://t.co/Zjl8n97y #freebrad
WikiLeaks @wikileaks
Notice how absolutely silent the Guardian is about Bradley trouncing their Person of the Year Poll. Why not shout it from the roof tops?
WikiLeaks @wikileaks
The fact is the Guardian biased its poll by front running+photographing its, apparently preferred, pro-war candidate. Now they sulk.
WikiLeaks @wikileaks
They also dropped the number of contestants (10 last year, 6 this year), and excluded everyone else with a popular base. But so wrapped...
WikiLeaks @wikileaks
...up in their own media prejudice and cockiness about how to bias the poll through presentation they couldn't see Manning would win.
WikiLeaks @wikileaks
Guardian still apparently sulking about Bradley Manning's landside win of 70% of the vote for Person of the Year. No news, no tweets.
WikiLeaks @wikileaks
Still bizarre silence from the Guardian on Manning's landside victory as Guardian Person of the Year 2012.
WikiLeaks @wikileaks
Is the Guardian plotting to unseat Manning's landslide popular vote as Person of the Year, "editorially", as Time magazine did with Assange?

Guardian admits Bradley Manning is Person of the Year in gotesque sulking fit | Guardian http://t.co/l02BwG0q #freebrad #anonymous
WikiLeaks @wikileaks
Note how the Guardian treats its alleged sources who are in prison fighting for their life.
WikiLeaks @wikileaks
The Guardian's recent Person of the Year fiasco is illustrative of how the UK establishment and modern media work. Points follow (1-10).
WikiLeaks @wikileaks
1. Decide to push pro-war Afghan war line by exploiting wounded girls similar to this CIA report released by WL http://t.co/cQq90tsv
WikiLeaks @wikileaks
2. Front load the Guardian "Person of the Year" list with the target that will let the Guardian rip on and on about the evil Taliban.
WikiLeaks @wikileaks
3. This week, that's Malala, a 14 year old girl reportedly shot in the head by the Taliban who has been exploited by the pro-war lobby
WikiLeaks @wikileaks
4. Create the Guardian candidate list and front load it with the intended winner (Malala)
WikiLeaks @wikileaks
5. To make readers feel like it's not a sham, offer to have other entrants nominated. The Guardian did not have Manning as a candidate.

6. A reader nominated Manning.. Accept him onto the list because they think he has no chance. Squeeze the list to a mere 6 contenstants.
WikiLeaks @wikileaks
7. Give the preferred candidate a) the only picture b) prime position c) additional stories manipulate the vote.
WikiLeaks @wikileaks
8. Due to provinciality at the Guardian it's impossible for the Guardian to imagine any other Candidate would win in their UK bubbleverse.
WikiLeaks @wikileaks
9, When democracy breaks out and Manning wins the vote by a landslide 70% at first simply pretend nothing happened at all. Say nothing.
WikiLeaks @wikileaks
10. Finally after the whole world is printing who won, issue a sulking statement marginalising the vote, voters, the winner and...
WikiLeaks @wikileaks
..continue to pump up the insitutional "meant to win" setup candidate, as an type of apology to the establishment, then blame the loss on...
WikiLeaks @wikileaks
the idiocy of the people and the evil enemy @WikiLeaks. Just like UK and often US foreign policy the world over.
