History’s Most Famous Whistleblowers

Many people consider whistleblowers as heroes while others look at them as traitors. The truth of the matter is, no matter what the context of the truths these whistleblowers expose, it is one of the riskiest and bravest actions any person can take. While some whistleblowers went on to be promoted and have high-paying careers, many of them went to jail or were ostracized or even forced to live in anonymity.

If a whistleblower is lucky, history will consider them a hero like a modern day David attempting to bring down a Goliath. But most of the time, they are seen as traitors whose future is bleak and sees a long prison sentence. Here we will look back on some of our history’s most notorious whistleblowers and the different destinies each of them faced because of their courageous acts.
