When Wikileaks released a highly controversial video showing U.S. troops firing on Reuters journalists in Iraq, both the Wikileaks organization and chief Julian Assange entered the spotlight. Assange may have anticipated a favorable interview when he appeared on the Colbert Report on Monday evening. But Stephen Colbert, after a few jokes, turned antagonistic. He accused Assange of "pure editorial" and of manipulating viewers to give a one-sided view of the incident. Colbert is an ally of the military, having visited U.S. troops in Iraq in 2009. Here's the interview as it appeared on the show and the full-length version:
