“Journalism is something that someone somewhere doesnt want published. Everything else is advertising.” Lord Northcliffe
I think, this quote above justifies Wikileaks.
However, when it comes to diplomacy, the truth is that it is like playing poker. WikiLeaks is really making things quite complicated for diplomacy, because playing poker with open cards does not make sense, does it? Diplomacy is about friends and enemies, sharing and not sharing information, doing things behind someone, giving promises and at the end of the day being as selfish as one can be. WikiLeaks has managed to seriously challenge the basic ‘values’ of diplomacy.
