WikiLeaks is a non-profit media organization dedicated to bringing important news and information to the public. They publish material of ethical, political and historical significance while keeping the identity of their sources anonymous. They do this through a web site. I personally think that this is brilliant and one of the best tools and resources to get REAL news.
You can’t believe everything you read in the media so WikiLeaks is a great resource that people can use. This is important to everyone because people have the right to know the difference of what their government is really doing and what they say they are doing. Every citizen has that expected, natural curiosity of what is going on in their country or another country for that matter. You cannot just rely on one source of news these days so it is important that people keep up to date and on top of what the government is really doing, especially with all the censorship of the media.
I think it is great because it exposes the governments which are not doing the right thing and in turn give people a better perspective on how governments are actually being run. They are doing something many people are not, which is telling the truth.
