yet another entry about how Wikileaks could be the next model for journalism/how less "media freedom" in developing countries leads to a worse media. IMHO, media critics tend to stress too much on government intervention on the media in developing countries, they view the corporate, oligopoly model of the media popular in developed countries as less harmful. Even though I truly hope things like Wikileaks will help raise unheard voices like the author wants to say, I agree with Cyrano that this process does not necessarily have to be confined to developing countries. Unfortunately, the view that developed countries have a better media permeates the landscape of journalism training assistance. Media context really needs to be taken at a much deeper level than it is now. The argument that "it takes time to ..." isn't 100% wrong, it's just realistic.
