Possibly. But, if WL staff/volunteers are being diverted from systems
administration to tasks that inflate Assadnge's reputation/ego/etc, such
as finding and contacting celebs to speak on his behalf, the website
will suffer. I have no direct evidence that's the case here but it's a
likely possibility given their long-term negligence toward promoting
datasets and defending sources. So while I'm guessing, it is an educated
guess that WL is likely diverting resources from maintaining the
website, the leaks, the journalism, and shifting them toward fluffing
Assadnge (and, lately, Jordan Peterson). Manning says something brief
along these lines in her new book, too. That will have consequences. The
antonym of narcissism is effort.
