Ron Paul: Whistleblowers Are True American Patriots

Ron Paul has issued a scathing attack at the mainstream media, accusing them of shunning government whistleblowers who he says should be regarded as “true American patriots.”
Amid a political climate that borders on mccarthyism, where politicians and media outlets label anybody who dares to tell the truth as a “danger to society”, Ron Paul wrote an Op-ed for USA Today outlining why he believes whistleblowers play a crucial role in a free and open society:
It’s deeply troubling that so many in the news media and in both political parties attack the efforts of whistle-blowers and those who publish their revelations. These individuals risk it all, not for their own wealth and glory, but to inform us of what is being done to us and in our name.
Their releases are both heroic and pro-American.
