WikiLeaks wins Australian journalism prize

In one of the largest acknowledgements of WikiLeaks as a journalistic organization, an Australian organization, the Walkley Foundation awarded the secret-spilling site for its “outstanding contribution to journalism,” AFP reports:

“WikiLeaks applied new technology to penetrate the inner workings of government to reveal an avalanche of inconvenient truths in a global publishing coup,” the Walkley trustees said in bestowing the award Sunday evening.

“Its revelations, from the way the war on terror was being waged, to diplomatic bastardry, high-level horse-trading and the interference in the domestic affairs of nations, have had an undeniable impact.”
