Rusbridger: Gemeinsam stark

Guardian-Chefredakteur Alan Rusbridger begründet, warum er die Depeschen mit der New York Times geteilt hat – nämlich mit der Annahme, dass die Kooperation vor juristischen Schwierigkeiten schützen würde:

We suspected that, if we went it alone under the framework of laws governing newspapers in this country, we simply wouldn’t be allowed to get away with it. We would be sued or injuncted or prosecuted, or all three. It seemed a good idea to harness the whole exercise to a country with extremely robust media laws rather than risk it all on the quick sands of the British legal system.
