In 2011, On the Media and the Government Accountability Project teamed up for a project called "Blow the Whistle," meant to ferret out a Senator that had used a particularly undemocratic device called a "secret hold" to kill an bill that would have protected government whistleblowers. The response was overwhelming, and hundreds of listeners helped us narrow down the Senators that worked together to kill the bill. Since the project ended, the Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act has been reintroduced in congress, but is now in danger once again of being gutted to remove key provisions. In this guest editorial, a trio of government transparency advocates lay out what's at stake with this latest salvo against the Whistleblower Protection Enhancement Act.
