Wikileaks: British government suspicious of many journalists

Wikileaks has a complicated story suggesting that the British government regards journalists (and perhaps bloggers) as potential security threats, along with hackers, members of disaffecte groups, and the like. The link is here. The leak comes from the “UK MoD Manual of Security Volumes”, not exactly calling for a book review!

The document goes on to describe particular concerns with links to both China and Russia, in comparison to more often touted concerns about Muslim extremism in Britain.
