Caught Between the Intercept & Wikileaks

He immediately blocked me after replying

I noticed he updated the original article I enquired about with a new hyperlink that I’d pointed out was missing. But rather than thank me for the help (as has been my experience with other journalists), he blocked me.

Before I could respond he blocked me AGAIN.
I asked him for sources too. Does that make me a “troublemaker”?

So what was the Wikileaks tweet Mackey deemed a “factual error”?

Wikileaks tweeted, “#DNCLeak: Trump may be right about Ted Cruz’s father & JFK kill — Comms head Luis Miranda”, referencing a leaked DNC email.

The Wikileaks tweet is sensationalized but not a “factual error”.
