War on Whistleblowers

War on Whistleblowers
(a 2013 documentary from producer/director Robert Greenwald and Brave New
Foundation) highlights the stories of four individuals who felt compelled to
disclose federal officials’ grave violations of law during the intense post-9/11
“war on terror” of the George W. Bush administration. It examines the rights of
insiders to expose, the press to publish and the public to know how government is
overstepping its authority.

Leading the post-film discussion is one of the journalists interviewed in the film – Lucy Dalglish, Dean of the College of Journalism at the University of Maryland, College Park. For more information, contact Lucy Duff at .
