By Invitation Only Meeting to Associate With Wikileaks

“Because information wants to be free.” The announcement at the Frontline journalists’ club says “following the Frontline Club’s involvement with WikiLeaks we would like to invite our members (only those that are paid-up) to join us  … with the chairman of the board of trustees John Owen … [to] explain the decision-making process behind the Frontline Club’s association with WikiLeaks.” But in the Club’s homepage they say, “all events are open to the public”.  The basic contradiction of the modern age is the small print under “information wants to be free”. It reads “pay to see more”.
