Am writing a thesis on Public Trust in WikiLeaks, the Media and the Government and need to know what your opinions are. The online survey is multiple choice and will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Please follow the link:

I took the survey, and it is only about a five minute affair. It was an enjoyable exercise in analysing my opinions and stances, gives good food for thought.

A bit more information from the survey proper:

The purpose of this survey is to measure public opinion and trust in WikiLeaks, the government and the mainstream media. It is anticipated the results will be collated, analysed and published as an Honours Dissertation as a partial fulfillment of a Bachelor of Arts (Hons) degree at Griffith University, Nathan Campus.

The central question investigated in this dissertation will be: ‘Will WikiLeaks publications lead to a more transparent government in the eyes of the public?’ Please keep in mind that questions on the media and government are the media and government from the country you have lived most of your life in (as indicated in Question 3).

Participants of this survey must be over 18 years of age and willing for the results of the survey to be published. You will remain anonymous, as there is no intention of collecting your name or personal details apart from basic demographics such as age, level of education, cultural background and so forth. If you do not feel comfortable answering a question, you may simply leave it blank. You may elect, at any point, to abandon the survey by either closing the online survey portal or destroying the paper copy of the survey.

All the best to Jim in his research!
