Bernard Keane


Bernard has been Crikey’s correspondent in Canberra since 2008; he writes on politics, media and economics.

He was educated at the University of Sydney, where he studied history. Before joining Crikey he was a public servant, and worked in transport policy and as a speechwriter before moving into communications policy. He is the author of War on the Internet.

Bernard says, ‘WikiLeaks is the most globally famous example of the connectedness that is rewiring our societies and ourselves. The war on WikiLeaks by governments and corporations is a war on an emerging, more democratic, more connected and more informed society by those with the greatest interest in a status quo they control. It’s therefore a war all of us have a stake in.’
