Sun takes the mickey out of WikiLeaks cash crisis

This is how the Sun headlined its story today about WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange announcing a "temporary suspension"of publishing by the whistleblowing website while it fights a financial blockade by banks.

The site has been deprived of donations since companies like Visa, Mastercard, Bank of America and PayPal refused to handle payments 11 months ago. Assange claims the "arbitrary and unlawful financial blockade" had wiped out 95 per cent of its revenue.
