Wikileaks – Bad News
“WikiLeaks, a whistleblower website that allows people to publish uncensored information anonymously, has suspended operations owing to financial problems.
Its running costs including staff payments are $600,000 (£377,000), but so far this year it has raised just $130,000 (£81,000).
WikiLeaks has established a reputation for publishing information that traditional media cannot.
The website claims to be non-profit and relies on donations.
A statement on its front page says it is funded by “human rights campaigners, investigative journalists, technologists and the general public”. “
Readers will remember their marvellous role in putting out the leaked BNP membership list.
Links to donate are on their front page.
