What media should be learning post-Wikileaks

Me today at the Wikileaks rally in Sydney:

The key issue is – what is Wikileaks telling us about the world? What are the documents Wikileaks is releasing saying to us about how our governments behave? And what is says is very, very clear – confirming in some way what many of us might have thought before – governments, our governments who we elect, lie to us all the time. There is a litany of examples – the Middle East, Africa, Asia, Australia – governments say one thing, journalists repeat that lie and Wikileaks says something else. And you would think – and you’d be wrong – that the journalists themselves who write those kind of lies and repeat the government policy over the years and who have been wrong would come out and say mea culpa. That has not happened.
