December 30th, 2010 by Andy in Deconstructing The Media, Video

An informative documentary piece on the history of Julian Assange and his organizational creation WikiLeaks. Produced during the summer of 2010 as an episode of Foreign Correspondent by ABC; the Australian Broadcasting Company (unfortunately, it is quite difficult to envision the American ABC from venturing such a production). It highlights WikiLeak’s burgeoning role within the global news and information system. It also features interviews with famed American whistleblower Daniel Ellsberg of Pentagon Papers fame, and highlights its role in the creation of the groundbreaking legislation of IMMI, the Icelandic Modern Media Initiative.
