Matthew Lee, AP JOURNALIST Governments Intimidate Journalists Crackdown on Whistleblowers ..

A crackdown on whistleblowers is also a worrying trend and it sends a signal the government has much to hide, he believes. Lee agrees journalistic influence has weakened recently, as many reporters are dependent on governmental sources for access to information. That’s why they may not be as hard-hitting as they should.
