Bill Keller on Wikileaks consequences in Tunisia


Matt Frei talks to Bill Keller, Executive Editor of the New York Times, about the organization's relationship with Wikileaks founder Julian Assange and some unintended consequences of the published documents. "Sources often come with their complications and their own agendas," said Keller. "You approach them with a certain amount of caution and keep a safe distance."

"We certainly didn't anticipate that the material we published about the corruption in the leadership of Tunisia would fuel what has turned into quiet a revolution," Keller said.
