Reporter from El País who has interviewed Julian Assange four times. Joseba Elola was one of the 30 journalists from El País who analyzed the 250,000 cables that arrived at the newspaper in November last year for several weeks, where he remained, together with his colleagues, in a room where secrecy reigned. Elola describes the analysis of the cables and the four interviews he has conducted with Assange as a "journalistic adventure". In the words of Elola, "the contribution of Wikileaks to the history of journalism is unappealable. We have never experienced such a situation. " In addition, it considers that the work of Wikileaks serves as "revulsive" to a mass media that has been carried away by the "compadreo" with the political and economic powers. In fact, for the reporter, this leak is the biggest thing that has happened to journalism in a long time.
