"In the days of print-only journalism, source documents were rarely published because of the expense of printing them. The New York Times could publish only excerpts of the Pentagon Papers, because it was some 7,000 pages in length; other publications merely wrote about the revelations contained within the Department of Defense study, rather than actually reproducing portions of it at all. Today, in the era of digital journalism, there is no longer any such thing as space limitations. The modern Times wrote extensively about the revelations provided by Wikileaks, but also provided a web-based archive of particularly interesting cables, in their entirety." ‎- silpol
