by Joel Gunter • June 2, 2011
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has been awarded the Martha Gellhorn prize for Journalism.
The prize is awarded annually to a journalist whose work has “penetrated the established version of events and told and unpalatable truth that exposes establishment propaganda, or ‘official drivel’, as Martha Gellhorn called it.”
Gellhorn, who died in 1998, was a well-known war correspondent and author.
