DemocracyNow.org - Alex Gibney's new documentary, "We Steal Secrets" bills itself as "the Story of WikiLeaks," but our guest Jennifer Robinson -- a legal advisor to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange -- claims it misses key facts. "This is a film about WikiLeaks, about the largest leak in history," Robinson says. "It touches on very important issues about journalism, whistleblowing.
