“2010 revealed a lot of information that politicians, administrators, diplomats and ordinary people would much rather have kept secret,” writes Visão in its annual news round-up entitled, “The year of the end of secrets.” The last 12 months have been marked by such a welter of stories about millionaire salaries, wire taps, WikiLeaks cables, and compromising pictures on Facebook, it is as though “the world has become an enormous keyhole which no one can resist looking through."
