No End to the Washington Post’s War on Whistleblowers

“In an article assessing Facebook last month, Washington Post writer Molly Roberts attacked whistleblowers for demonstrating a ‘lack of loyalty’ to their institutions and described their actions as ‘betrayal.’ Roberts argued that it took ‘gumption’ for whistleblowers to decide that they are right and that the leaders above them are wrong. She wrote that these actions ‘look like individualism to some and narcissism to others.’ In fact, the nation needs more whistleblowers, particularly after the corruption of the Trump presidency.” (11/09/21)
