Julian Assange: Don't shoot messenger

De oprichter van Wikileaks - Julian Assange - heeft niet stilgezeten voor hij zelf naar de Britse politie stapte. Hij plaatste een brief in  The Australian.

WikiLeaks coined a new type of journalism: scientific journalism. We work with other media outlets to bring people the news, but also to prove it is true. Scientific journalism allows you to read a news story, then to click online to see the original document it is based on. That way you can judge for yourself: Is the story true? Did the journalist report it accurately?
Democratic societies need a strong media and WikiLeaks is part of that media. The media helps keep government honest. WikiLeaks has revealed some hard truths about the Iraq and Afghan wars, and broken stories about corporate corruption.
