Journalists, advocates and former-whistleblowers Wednesday launched a new platform "to disclose information that citizens need in order to make truly informed decisions in a democracy." ExposeFacts.org, which features a video statement by famed Pentagon Papers leaker Daniel Ellsberg on its homepage, worked with experts to implement SecureDrop. Whistleblowers can utilize the system to securely submit documents and files to the organization's board of journalists. RT's Lindsay France discusses the new project with Norman Solomon, a member of ExposeFacts' editorial board.
