New News: LEAK! Why do people leak, and why should you?
Most important journalism depends, to some extent, on who breaks the rules to give confidential information to journalists. Sometimes they are breaking the law. Can such action ever be justified? What motivates leakers, and should the law protect them? What would happen if no one leaked?
With Suelette Dreyfus, University of Melbourne, Nick McKenzie, the Age investigative team, Peter Bartlett, Minter Ellison and Paul Farrell, Guardian Australia.
