I have been following wikileaks for a long time now. This website has given journalism a new image. Website launched in 2006 has gained a lot of popularity. Website won a lot of awards as well. Everything funded by people around the world.
More about Wikileaks : WikiLeaks (sometimes Wikileaks) is an international organization that publishes anonymous submissions and leaks of otherwise unavailable documents while preserving the anonymity of sources. Its website, launched in 2006, is run by The Sunshine Press. Within a year of its launch, the site claimed a database that had grown to more than 1.2 million documents.
The organization has described itself as having been founded by Chinese dissidents, as well as journalists, mathematicians, and start-up company technologists from the U.S., Taiwan, Europe, Australia, and South Africa. Newspaper articles and The New Yorker magazine (June 7, 2010) describe Julian Assange, an Australian journalist and Internet activist, as its director.
