WikiLeaks Task Force demands Jezebel writer delete “rapist shitbag” Assange tweet or “face the consequences”

The WikiLeaks Task Force was set up last October to “correct misinformation” about anti-secrecy media organisation WikiLeaks.

Earlier this month, the Task Force claimed that Jezebel writer C.A. Pinkham was “committing libel with actual malice” because he suggested WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was “a rapist shitbag.”

Assange was granted political asylum by Ecuador’s London embassy in mid-2012 after facing sexual assault allegations in Sweden. He says the sex was consensual and believes if he leaves the embassy he risks being extradited to the U.S. to face prosecution for WikiLeaks’ 2010 release of classified government documents.
