      Assange's Arrest Attacks All Investigative Journalists - Investigative Journalism Center

      The arrest of WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, who was apprehended by the UK police earlier in the day in London, constitutes a blow to the entire field of investigative journalism, the Center for Investigative Journalism said in a statement on Thursday.

      "Whatever your view of its philosophy of radical transparency, Wikileaks is a publisher. Any charges now brought in connection with that material, or any attempt to extradite Mr Assange to the United States for prosecution under the deeply flawed cudgel of the Espionage Act 1917, is an attack on all of us," the statement said.

      The statement added that Assange "deserves the solidarity of the community of investigative journalists."
