The vital work of whistleblowers, and the dangers they face _on Project Censored

Coming up every Tuesday and Saturday at 8 am Pacific * 11 am Eastern * 16:00 GMTProject Censored

This week’s program focuses on whistleblowers — their contributions to society, the retaliation they often endure, and the legal protections they need. Mickey’s guests are three whistleblowers, and a leader from an organization that supports whistleblowers. We learn about the dangers or abuses these three men exposed, and what reforms are needed to defend individuals who take the risks of becoming whistleblowers.

Tom Devine is Legal Director at the nonprofit Government Accountability Project (www.whistleblower.org).
Frank Serpico is a retired NYPD detective who became a household name after exposing widespread corruption within the department. His story was the subject of a 1973 Hollywood movie.
Rick Parks is a nuclear engineer who worked at the damaged Three Mile Island power plant in 1980, and has spoken out about management’s and regulators’ failures to prioritize safety above utility profits.
Robert MacLean was fired from the Transportation Security Administration after criticizing dangerous shortcomings in airline security procedures.
