Yeah, that's nice for the Journalists, but what about the whistle blower? It might help journalists and their publishers stand up more, but they are still going to need those whistleblowers. And whistleblowers can see that their lives will be ruined.
I'm looking at a case where both the government and a powerful industry want to shut down whistle blowers. They don't want to flee the country, thrown into jail or sued to death by industry.
I not only want whistleblowers to be revealing stuff, I'd like them to profit from it! Crazy I know, but we talk about government waste and corruption. What is your reward for exposing it or stopping it? Satisfactions is nice, but you also get lawsuits, and possible arrest.
I'm hoping more people can find out and use qui tam laws so they can not only expose the fraud problems but sue the companies profiting from it.
