GigaOm and Yahoo! News report that the New York Times is considering creating a rival to WikiLeaks. According to GigaOm, “the plan is still in its formative stages, but the idea is to create a “kind of EZ Pass lane for leakers,” to make it easier for them to contact the paper and deliver information.” GigaOm also mentions that former WikiLeaks individuals are set to launch OpenLeaks soon as well.

The New Yorker reports similar information about the NYT and OpenLeaks, but focuses on Al-Jazeera launching a new feature on its Web site called the Transparency Unit—the network’s in-house version of WikiLeaks.
