Last week I had the good fortune to shoot the “Anyone Can Whistle: The Essential Role of the Whistleblower in American Society” event at the Paley Center for Media in Manhattan in NYC. The event was co produced by GAP (Government Accountability Project) and Participant Media

It was a great experience having grown up through the 60′s finally getting to meet some of the icons that made that era so important.
Daniel Ellsberg – Henry Kissinger called him “The most dangerous man in America”. The patriarch of modern whistleblowing, his disclosures (the Pentagon Papers) as a Rand Corporation/DoD analyst exposed deceit and concealment involving the governmentâs handling of the Vietnam War.
Frank Serpico – NYPD whistleblower whose story is memorialized by Al Pacino in the film Serpico.
Babak Pasdar – Computer security expert who exposed that a major telecommunication company provided the federal government unfettered access to its customers’ private communications.
Kit Foshee – Meat safety whistleblower who exposed serious problems with ammoniated beef product from a major supplier.
