Wikileaks

The NYT refers to Wikileaks in this article as an "antisecrecy organization". I am not sure the debate has been resolved on Wikileaks' objectives though. In the past, the main way it worked was probably to leak everything it had without edition, but the pace at which Wikileaks is adapting makes its categorization quite complicated. What is the solution? Maybe put "would-be journalistic organization". It seems that Wikileaks wants now to be consider as a credible provider of information, so this term seem to be factually correct(in the sense that, as I say, the debate on what differentiates the NYT and Wikileaks has not been settled yet in my opinion.)
