WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange claims to be a journalist, but is he?

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was arrested this week in London for allegedly conspiring to hack into a Pentagon computer network in 2010.

The move comes after the Australian hacker was evicted at an Ecuadorian Embassy in London where he had confined himself for several years. Assange had received diplomatic asylum but was turned over to police who arrested him for allegedly bail-jumping.

Assange has described himself as a journalist, but others have spoken out against this claim saying his conduct over the years put him in a different category.

Julia Wallace, Frank Russell Chair at the Cronkite School, and Joseph Russomanno, an associate professor at the Cronkite School, join us on “Arizona Horizon” to discuss journalism ethics and Assange’s recent arrest.
