SUNDAY — CNN anchor Chris Cuomo told his viewers a bunch of nonsense in what appears to be an attempt to keep viewers from reading what is on the Wikileaks website.
FROM DAILY CALLER: Cuomo’s claim is faulty on a few counts. While the government might potentially prosecute somebody purely for the act of downloading stolen documents, legal experts are divided on whether such a prosecution would be constitutional. Even if downloading the emails were illegal, that is totally irrelevant in this case, because nobody has to download the WikiLeaks emails in order to read them. They’re all freely available to read on a website anybody can access.
Whatever the legal status of downloading the emails, there is absolutely no restriction on simply reading them, despite what Cuomo implies.
