Fun fact about the WaPo’s Ben Bradlee: This is what he does every day to impress people in the newsroom. He is a master of the holding-up-paper-with-his-neck thing, especially with Supreme Court decisions that affect the newspaper itself (in this case, New York Times Co. v. United States, which allowed the paper to print the Pentagon Papers), and especially in front of Katharine Graham. You should see him do it with an iPad; he’s 90 years old and he can still do this. (From the New York Times’ slightly-more-important story about the Washington Post’s changing climate in the digital news cycle; photo by United Press International. Also, to be clear, so anyone doesn’t take us seriously, we’re jesting about the photo.)

I identify with him more than anyone else I’ve seen in the last 40 years.
Daniel Ellsberg • Speaking about Bradley Manning this weekend, a weekend which saw him getting arrested twice this weekend while protesting Manning’s imprisonment — once near the White House and once at Quantico brig. Ellsberg, who leaked the Pentagon Papers, says that Manning’s treatment in solitary confinement is a form of torture. “It’s giving lie to President Obama’s promise to end torture,” he said. “It’s happening right here to an American soldier in an American brig.’’ Ellsberg also gave a big up to P.J. Crowley, who argued against Manning’s treatment before getting forced out by the State Department. source (viafollow)
