‘Whistleblower vs Leaker’ What’s the Difference?

Whistleblowing.

It’s a Legally Protected Right – but you don’t see them broadcasting that much do you? They don’t want you to know that – they want you to keep their secrets!

  • Leaker: When used by those in political power, ‘leaker’ is often used to imply one who releases unauthorized information is doing something wrong & possibly criminal.
  • Whistleblower: The disclosing of information by an employee with evidence of a violation of law, rule or regulation; gross mismanagement; gross waste of funds; abuse of authority; a substantial & specific danger to public health or safety; or scientific censorship that would result in these forms of misconduct.”

So – they label you a leaker instead, to smear & slander you. They not only squash your rights, but try to keep you from knowing you even have them! Gaslighting is too often used to fool & confuse the masses. Enough is Enough! It’s imperative one know the difference between the two & what protection is available when they come forward:

Referring to legitimate whistleblowing as leaking gives cover to actions that support the rhetorical implication that such speech is something unlawful rather than protected.”

The Spin:

“The aggressive prosecutions of intelligence whistleblowers by using the rhetoric of “leakersfeeds into the narrative that whistleblowing is a crime, or a threat to national security, even though most leaks of information, & most whistleblowing, have nothing to do with national security or intelligence matters & do not involve classified information.”

 Whistleblowing is NOT a crime. 

Ban the Criminalization of Whistleblowers!

Gaslighting is by far one of the worst things I’ve ever had to go through; & I’ve been through a helluva lot of fucked up shit. Gaslighting is an incredibly dangerous mind control & manipulation tool. One of the happiest days of my life was when I learned of the existence & definition of “Gaslighting.” Seriously – It’s that bad.
