AbstractExposing government information, secret or otherwise, through leaks to the news media or other channels, goes back to the birth of the United States. Whistleblowers usually act out of a sense of duty to their conscience and to the American public. The reward for their efforts, however, is seldom positive. A whistleblower often risks losing a job, financial ruin, or being labeled a traitor to his or her country.
