    What's New About Wikileaks What's New About Wikileaks Presentation Transcript

    • What’s new about Wikileaks?
      Charlie Beckett
      POLIS, LSE

    • It’s traditional journalism
      It takes a source (leaker) to make a Wikileak
      It has an editor and a newsroom and a brand
      It’s selective – they chose what to release
      It has a motive – to expose abuses
      It needs a platform with an audience
      It can be sued, censored and it needs revenue
      http://futureoftheinternet.org/wikileaks-cable-faq
    • It’s a new challenge to power
    • Its’ a new challenge to power
      “What WikiLeaks is really exposing is the extent to which the western democratic system has been hollowed out.”
      John Naughton
    • It’s a new challenge to power
      That’s why they are attacking it
      It gives evidence for abuse of power
      It protects sources and disseminates beyond normal legal sanctions
      It exposes how power works, not just what it does
      It is ideologically motivated
      It is a challenge to networked power (Castells)
    • It’s a new challenge to journalism
      “It….forces journalists and news organisations to demonstrate to what extent they are now part of an establishment it is their duty to report.”
      Emily Bell
    • It’s a new challenge to journalism
      It is independent
      It is non-profit
      It is ideologically motivated
      It is disruptive of normal media/power relations
      It has a different risk calculation
      It is not accountable to usual media regulation
    • It’s networked data journalism
      It relies on user generated content (the leakers!)
      It is working with mainstream media
      It is putting material online for public to use
      It is supported by the public
      But:
      Is it transparent?
    • Where does it end?
      Transparency as default
      Endless accountability
      Or:
      Privacy premium
      Digital vaults
      Uneven Internet
