A screen shot of a web browser shows the wikileaks.ch home page with a portrait of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange next to the out of service wikileaks.com domain, in Lavigny December 4, 2010. WikiLeaks moved its website address to the Swiss http://wikileaks.ch on Friday after two U.S. Internet providers ditched it and Paris tried to ban French servers from hosting its database of leaked information.

    OK, now my burning question is this.....When a Sri Lankan journalist writes bad about the SL government, and once the SL government puts him/her in jail, countries like US and their friends like EU, Australia, Canada, etc give this journalist an award and also asylum in their country. But when a western journalist just publishes articles that he received through someone else, the US government and their friends go on a witch hunt and somehow get all the ISPs to ditch the website and ban, etc..... Is this hypocricy 101 or am I just being too naive ??

    Hello NGOs !! Don't you think its time that you had a demonstration outside (your) US Embassy in support of press freedom? So much so for freedom of expression. Hypocracy they call it.

    That's called democracy!!!

    PRESS FREEDOM .........!!!!!!!!
    unlike in 3rd world countries, as a journalist you are quite safe in expressing your ideas in the 100% democratic gov. in US.
