WikiLeaks editor Julian Assange addresses the question of how safe confidential sources are in the digital age. "The chance of your source getting run over by a car," he says, "are vastly higher than they are of being caught."
A panel of experts from the press, government, and academia discuss their new and upcoming projects. They discuss different methods of promoting investigative journalism, ranging from building non-profit institutions to converting the country of Iceland into a "free press haven."
The panel features Gavin MacFadyen (The Bureau for Investigative Journalism, UK), Chuck Lewis (American University), Julian Assange (WikiLeaks), Birgitta Jónsdóttir (Member of Parliament, Iceland) and Jon Weber (The Bay Citizen). Lowell Bergman moderates. - Berkeley School of Journalism
