Re: “The Fifth Estate

But Daniel Domscheit-Berg left Wikileaks on 7 February 2010. He simply wasn't around for any of the massive releases Wikileaks made in 2010. Neither was DDB's wife Anke, who has never met or talked with Assange. DDB made up nearly everything he said in his book, to make lots of money and out of revenge for Wikileaks not seeing him as nearly as important as Domscheit-Berg thought he was.

Here, proof that in December 2009 Wikileaks was already having problems with the guy who acted as their spokesman in Germany (DDB) misrepresenting himself in the press:

Re: “

There's nothing realistic about this movie; it's pure fiction, right down to the 'fact' Assange dyes his hair or was ever in a cult (neither are true). Hear what people who know and work with the man have to say after seeing the movie (which the filmmakers did not even have to good grace to show a preview screening to its central subject)

By the way, do not recommend Alex Gibney's We Steal Secrets instead. That, too, is full of outright lies. Example: There really is no excuse for a documentary maker to interview a woman making allegations of sexual assault, juxtapose that interview with a photograph from the police forensic evidence file of the torn, "used" condom she handed to police, and then NOT tell his viewers that the forensic lab ALSO found that the condom in question didn't have any DNA on it - not even hers. Clearly, she's handed in fake evidence and, clearly, that must have been obvious to Alex Gibney when he read the police forensic file during his research. Reputable filmmakers don't do that, and Alex Gibney's willingness to knowingly use false evidence in this film can only lead to the question "What else isn't true in this 'documentary'?"

Re: “We Steal Secrets: The Story of WikiLeaks

Wikileaks has leaked a full annotated transcript of the film, with links to documentary evidence rebutting many of the claims made in the film. I think in fairness to your readers you should maybe update your article to include it at the bottom, to at least alert your readers that a lot of things in Alex Gibney's film are inaccurate.

As an example, here's one Wikileaks note that deals with how the Swedish allegations are treated and why Alex Gibney chooses to show a photo of a condom that Assange is accused of "deliberately tearing" from the police forensics file without telling his audience that forensics found no trace of anyone's DNA on it:

That's either extremely poor research by a film-maker, or biased smear.
