I think it's also because he's marketing the Leak brand to mainstream and this was a better hook. He blew his cover good lately on the whole Bradley Manning thing. John Young (Cryptome) Wikileaks was in talks to arrange funding with OSI (George Soros). ABC, Time Magazine and CNN et al love him. Assange is the Pentagon's 'Most Wanted Man in America' but he's making TV appearances. The CIA can catch a 14 year old girl downloading Lady Gaga on BitTorrent but they can't pop by a TV studio they have close connections with and pick up Assange .. ok. Who's buying this crap?
Another angle of this is that all this high profile leaking is a threat to national security so they are giving it play to justify programs like CYBERCOM, Internet Journalism Liscences and the RealID.
Also Wikileaks has reportedly raised close to $1M for Bradley Manning's defence. The Manning camp hasn't seen a dime.
A couple of great shows on this with Jack Blood on Deadline Live recently:
John Young (Cryptome) Talks About Wikileaks
.. also a really good interview with Michael Shaw of http://freedomadvocates.org/ in the second hour on the Agenda 21, Biodiversity and Sustainable Development agenda. I'm working on putting some stuff together with him soon.
Wayne Madsen (Madsen Report) on Wikileaks
What is Wikileaks?
A little more glossed over history, I liked John Young's version better
