A panel debate organised by Index on Censorship and Columbia Journalism School that asked:
Has WikiLeaks expanded our view of how news should be shared, or ushered in a new age of dangerous muckraking
Whether governments have a right to keep secrets, or is radical transparency the only way to ensure accountability
The panel included: PJ Crowley, the US state department spokesman, who resigned in March after he described Bradley Manning's treatment as "ridiculous and counterproductive and stupid", Julian Assange's attorney Mark Stephens, investigative journalist and security services expert Andrei Soldatov, Director of the Tow Center for Digital Journalism Emily Bell and Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen, to debate the fallout from WikiLeaks for freedom of speech, national security and the media.
