WikiLeaks self-promotional honorifics are humorously manipulative
like any other prize, award, condescending media campaign.

Indignant smears are beneficial: Don't trust Cryptome or John Young.

John Young is listed as a Truth Teller and a Whistleblower. He is mentioned on the same pages as Chelsea Manning, sitting in prison. In the same breath as Edward Snowden. Thomas Drake. Mark Klein. You get the picture.

This is why it matters. Whether John Young deserves to be there among people who have truly risked everything to tell the truth is something only his actions will demonstrate.
