Understanding the Two Types of Whistleblowers

Jefferson Morley Independent Media Institute
Maybe the specter of a lawless president and the example of an insider legal whistleblower who called him out will prod Congress to start creating more protections for those who want to speak truth to power. We need more of those protections.

Book Review: Daniel Ellsberg's New Nuclear Wakeup Call

Chuck Idelson Portside
The secrets Ellsberg (Pentagon Papers) unfolds are a thousand times more frightful than Stephen King at his best. Except this is no novel. Not “Dr. Strangelove” but “A Hard Rain’s a Gonna Fall.”

Steven Spielberg’s Ode to Journalism in “The Post”

Anthony Lane The New Yorker
Starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep as Ben Bradlee and Katharine Graham, this drama about the Washington Post is squarely aimed at our current moment. The movie, written by Liz Hannah and Josh Singer, sprouts from this rift between the true state of affairs and the alternative facts that are presented to the public. As is common knowledge, it was Ellsberg’s conscience about the rift that led him to steal—or, if you prefer, to liberate—a hulking stash of incriminating documents, which came to be called the Pentagon Papers.
