On Monday, transparency activist Emma Best published the full “confidential legal communication” sent by WikiLeaks to journalists the day prior, which warned them not to repeat any “inaccurate and defamatory claims” about the organization or its founder Julian Assange.

Existence of the 5,000-word email, which lists 140 “defamations” with citations, was first reported on Sunday by Reuters. The transparency organization had explicitly asked reporters not to publish the email sent to them.
