@havyatt Exactly. Plus a uni email account is not private email, and there’s certainly a public interest argument. But then IANAL.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to havyatt

@havyatt AFAIK there’s no indication from New Matilda on how. They’ve denied hacking, so “a source”. A recipient, or one who was forwarded?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to havyatt

@BXGD Agreed on both counts. But “point of view” is not “opinion” as such. See @jayrosen_nyu’s “view from nowhere” writing.
