Bradley Manning's pre-trial hearing: live-blogging, live-tweeting, and live-sketching

Kevin Gosztola is liveblogging the pre-trial hearing of suspected Wikileaks source Bradley Manning at Ft. Meade.

Also in the courtoom, the Guardian's Ed Pilkington, and Arun Rath of Frontline/PRI's The World, both of whom live-tweeted the proceedings today.

Artist Clark Stoeckley (@WikileaksTruck on Twitter) is also present, and is live-sketching. I like his coverage the best.

  1. I need one of them legal aide jobs. Get free clothes to sit in court reading magazines and get paid. Kaboom!

  2. Why are we still using the name “Bradley” for this soldier? It’s quite clear from what we know that she prefers Breeana and female pronouns, and I think it’s only fair that the press refers to her as such.

    1. “From what we know” meaning from confidential communications or from verified public statements to that effect? Manning’s own defense team still seems to be using “Bradley.” We should certainly respect Private Manning’s wishes, but that also means waiting until he/she makes those wishes clear.

  3. These are not sketches…. they look pretty overworked (look at all that charcoal on those military suits… look at that wood texture).
    They look pretty cool BTW… if they were made by a 8 year old kid!

  4. Dear Boing Boing,

    I’m asking you from the bottom of my queer queer heart to at least address, publicly, how you’re going to handle Private Manning’s gender identity in your coverage. I’m honestly confused and a little hurt because I’ve always thought of Boing Boing as an inherently safe space for LGBTQ folks.

    Yours queerly,
    A Concerned Reader
