WikiLeaks-III/Human Right Award in Australia

Julian Assange, founder of Wikileaks, was awarded the gold medal from the Sydney Peace Foundation on 10 May 2011. Mary Kostakidis, veteran Australian broadcaster, presented the award to Assange; the foundation recognizes his leadership, courage, tenacity in journalism (Digital Journal 11 May 2011). Assange is the fourth person to receive the award following after Dalai Lama (from China), Nelson Mandela (South Africa), and Ikeda Daisaku (Japan).  Washington might not like the award, and the award has had little covered by the Western media. Why?
