Interview With the Man Behind WikiLeaks

An anonymous reader writes “Julian Assange, the man behind WikiLeaks, explains why he feels it is right to encourage the leaking of secret information. He maintains that the more money an organisation spends on trying to conceal information, the more good it is likely to do if leaked. For Assange, leaked intelligence reveals the true state of governments, their human rights abuses, and their activities, it’s what the ‘history of journalism is’. On the media’s role in making information available to the public, Assange maintains that ‘the rest of the world’s media is doing such a bad job that a little group of activists is able to release more of that type of information [classified documents] than the rest of the world press combined.’”
