Wikileaks has sent shockwaves through the diplomatic community worldwide. This panel, presented at the National Conference for Media Reform in Boston on April 8, discusses how the release of these documents has reinvigorated the great journalistic tradition of muckraking. It also raises the fundamental questions about how journalism is done in an age of digital whistleblowers and online leaks.
Panelists: Emily Bell: Tow Center for Digital Journalism; Glenn Greenwald: Salon.com; Greg Mitchell: editor, author and blogger for The Nation; Micah Sifry: Personal Democracy Forum; and Christopher Warren: Media, Entertainment & Arts Alliance. The panel was moderated by Amy Goodman of Democracy Now!
