Coalition of civil liberties and human rights groups — including @ACLU, @FreedomofPress, @RSF_inter, @EFF, @hrw, and @amnestyusa — again call on Biden admin to drop Assange charges to protect press freedom. news.yahoo.com/civil-libertie…
We’ve described the prosecution as the “most dangerous press freedom issue” in the United States: freedom.press/news/the-most-… Yet despite its rhetoric on the importance of press freedom, the Biden administration continues to pursue the charges.
Proud that @fightfortheftr signed on to this @FreedomofPress letter calling on Biden admin to drop charges against #Assange.

“This is an effort to intimidate a reporter who is doing important reporting and uncovering a newsworthy story.” washingtonpost.com/media/2021/10/…
Reporters (especially data journalists) and sources have long described the shadow cast by the threat of liability under overbroad "hacking" laws. Today's reckless accusations by the governor of Missouri show that the threat can be wielded against even basic computer use.
It's not just bad security for the Governor of Missouri to attack and vilify a journalist who has discovered (and responsibly disclosed!) a vulnerability. It's a press freedom violation that threatens to chill important reporting.

The reporter discovered this flaw in the site’s HTML source code, which is accessible through every major internet browser. Missouri Gov. Parson’s threat illustrates a fundamental misunderstanding of digital security. twitter.com/J_Hancock/stat…
