I participated yesterday in a panel on WikiLeaks and the media at the National Conference for Media Reform in Boston. The entire panel discussion, moderated by Amy Goodman, can be viewed below; my presentation -- focusing on the reaction of the establishment press to WikiLeaks and the reasons why the controversy is so important -- begins at the 54:45 mark, and there is an interesting Q-and-A session that follows. Now that I'm home, regular posting will resume tomorrow or Monday.
