WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange says he's being forced into writing an autobiography to keep his organization from going under. New York publishing house Alfred A. Knopf confirmed Monday that it had struck a deal with the 39-year-old Australian to bring out his autobiography. Assange, speaking to the Sunday Times, said the deal would bring in more than $1 million. "I don't want to write this book, but I have to," he said. "I need to defend myself and to keep WikiLeaks afloat."
