Très interesant. Pouvez-vous me dire le nom du media? Je n'arrive pas à lire sous les sous-titres. Merci

This article, initially published on Mediapart's French pages, results from an agreement signed between Mediapart and WikiLeaks on January 31st, 2011, by which Mediapart became a new media partner for the whistle-blowing site. The partnership respects the independence of each of the two parties, and confirms the principles of freedom of information espoused by both parties. It also confirms the shared principles that respect the confidentiality of sources and the integrity of the information published.

An article describing the circumstances of the agreement, and a Mediapart video interview with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange recorded during the occasion, can be seen by clicking here.

Only a small volume of the more than 250,000 US diplomatic cables in WikiLeaks' possession has been published so far. Mediapart's policy is to spend all appropriate time to properly research the documents it is now provided with under the agreement, and to follow up with the necessary investigations of the information they provide.
