WikiRebels is a documentary created by Swedish television network SVT that offers a compelling biography of the new media powerhouse WikiLeaks and its passionate founder Julian Assange, as well other active members in the free information movement like Daniel Domscheit-Berg, founder of Openleaks.org. WikiLeaks was established in 2006 as an international media outlet that sought to publish classified and restricted documents from governments around the world in hopes of exposing corruption and injustice to the public. WikiLeaks allows whistle blowers to anonymously submit their information, allowing them to expose corruption without fear of personal consequences. Since its founding, WikiLeaks has been responsible for major scoops than any American media outlet can claim, and the site has drawn a great deal of criticism and legal action for its rebellious attitude towards government and corporate society. WikiRebels is a riveting documentary that sheds some light on the background of this highly secretive news organization.
