Whistleblowing definition: do you think governments and big companies do not keep any secrets from society? We all have skeletons in our closet that we would very much like to keep under lock. But sometimes secrets are kept at a much higher level, say governmental or organizational.
And while, for the most part, the undisclosed information remains sealed, there have been several moments in modern history, when someone has stepped up and revealed what was going on.
One of the most recent cases of whistleblowing is Edward Snowden’s reveal of “PRISM,” a top-secret mass surveillance program conducted by the U.S. National Security Agency and British GCHQ. Snowden exposed the information to a reporter from “The Guardian” sparkling one of the biggest international scandals, not to mention a major security breach of the NSA. Currently, Snowden is residing in a hotel near an airport in Moscow, waiting for Russian authorities to give him asylum in the country.
Even though Snowden’s leak of information is a significant event of this kind in the modern world, there are a couple of others that should be mentioned. We would like to present you with a list of five more whistleblowers in modern times who brought into light some of the darkest secrets of the U.S.
These cases should clear up the whistleblowing definition quite clearly for you, in a style similar to our coverage of New World Order facts earlier this year.
