Spokesperson and editor-in-chief of WikiLeaks said “As long as we can speak out, as long as we can publish, and as long as the Internet remains free, we will continue to fight back, armed with the truth. No longer will workers who receive inferior gifts have to wonder who the scrooge was in his company.”
“We, journalists, are at our best when we share with activists and lawyers the goal of exposing bad gift giving and wrong-doing; when we help to hold others to account. We hope to send people the message to transform the bad old days of “Secret Santas” and move to fully accountable and open “Transparent Santas.” WikiLeaks believes good gift givers should be acknowledged for their efforts and bad gift givers held up for ridicule and accountability.”
Oddly news of this latest data dump has temporarily caused a rise in sales in stores across the world from companies affected by the leaks as workers went to stores to return gifts to buy betters ones.
