Julian Assange says thank you for winning Walkley Award for Most Outstanding Contribution to Journalism.

I have always seen Julian Assange as a doubled-edged sword. To give him a prize for journalism defies any concept of journalism I have ever had.

Maybe I got it wrong! Maybe not!

However, listening to his little diatribe against our wonderful Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, and the Obama Administration, because that is what is currently governing the USA,,,,well,, I might give him a few brownie points!
