massive, pervasive corruption

Sursa anonimă care a dat jurnaliștilor documentele din Panama Papers a scris un articol foarte elocvent și interesant despre situația economică și aspectele etice care l-au determinat să-și riște pielea în felul ăsta. E îngrijorător că a avut de alergat după publicații dispuse să primească datele, în loc să alerge ele după el:

Many news networks are cartoonish parodies of their former selves, individual billionaires appear to have taken up newspaper ownership as a hobby, limiting coverage of serious matters concerning the wealthy, and serious investigative journalists lack funding. The impact is real: in addition to Süddeutsche Zeitung and ICIJ, and despite explicit claims to the contrary, several major media outlets did have editors review documents from the Panama Papers. They chose not to cover them. The sad truth is that among the most prominent and capable media organizations in the world there was not a single one interested in reporting on the story. Even Wikileaks didn’t answer its tip line repeatedly.
