++ Wikileaks founder Julian Assange accused British book publisher Canongate of releasing drafts of a memoir, written by Andrew O’Hagan, without his approval. Although Canongate bought the rights to the memoir from Assange last year, Assange reconsidered and has attempted to back out of the contract. He calls the draft “unfinished and erroneous.” Knopf has canceled plans to distribute the book in the U.S. “The author did not complete his work on the manuscript or deliver a book to us in accordance with our agreement,” said Knopf spokesman Paul Bogaards. Excerpts of the draft can be found in The Independent.

++ Speaking of hacktivism, Anonymous, the mass, online civil disobedience group — and prolific headline-maker — may be getting a book, non-anonymously written by Gregg Housh and Barrett Brown.

    Assange is unAmerican and should go back to Russia if he hates it here so much! I don’t like it!
