Wikileaks’s newest target

Kai Ryssdal Nov 30, 2010

This final note today: Finally a business angle to the Wikileaks story. Forbes magazine posted an interview with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange on its website yesterday, in which Assange said he’s sitting on five gigiabytes — a whole lot of data — from a major American bank and that he’s going to release it early next year.

Best line about this I head all day? From Barry Ritholtz’s blog, The Big Picture: Really, he said, how much more can you embarrass Wall Street, anyway?
