Media Alliance warns of muzzling of Australian media over Wikileaks

Journalists union The Media, Entertainment & Arts Alliance has come to the defence of anonymous disclosure site WikiLeaks.

In a statement this afternoon, the union accused Amazon, which withdrew hosting services from WikiLeaks, of caving in to hysteria.

It follows the release by Wikileaks – which is led by the Australian Julian Assange – of a huge amount of diplomatic exchanges involving the US.

Federal secretary Chris Warren said: Amazon’s decision is extremely disappointing. We need to take a step back from the hysteria. It is not known whether WikiLeaks has broken any law. It has – via a free media – upheld the public’s right to know — via redwolf.newsvine.com
