One of Sweden's best-selling tabloids, Expressen, reported recently that they had discovered a secret research project by Wikileaks. They wrote that the whistleblowing group was investigating Swedish journalists, taking photos of them, and even finding out how much their homes were worth.

This was all supposedly to reveal a media plot against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. Expressen also says that Wikileaks are ready to unleash "smears" against Sweden, if Assange is extradited from the UK.

Now Wikileaks, and Expressen's editor Thomas Mattsson, are writing articles accusing each other of lying.
