Whistleblower Tour, April 8, 2014, Annenberg School, USC, Los Angeles

National security whistleblowers explained the challenges they faced when trying to expose wrongdoing or violations of the law and discussed the critical balance between civil liberties and national security. Speakers included Daniel Ellsberg, the military analyst who leaked the Pentagon Papers, and Edward Snowden’s attorney, Jesselyn Radack. Authors Sancy Tolan and Narda Zacchino participated from the audience. 

“Whistleblowing and Journalism: The Role of Watchdogs in the National Security Era” was a panel of the Annenberg School event, “Patriot or Traitor? Whistleblowing and Journalism in the Age of Government Surveillance,” which was part of the Government Accountability Project’s “American Whistleblower Tour: Essential Voices for Accountability.” (CSPAN video here.)
