Still think that the idea of turning this around on the 'whistleblower' is lousy, and it happens so much that it makes the idea of BEING a whistleblower pretty terrible.
I don't want to argue the credibility of your source, but I have a few issues with it. For one, it's an opinion piece/editorial, not a news article. Even the linked "sources" are mostly opinion. Secondly, the points it tries to make are worded very carefully and opaque:

"This claim appears to have been wrong."

"This doesn't mean it's wrong, but it still seems like an exaggeration."

Notice the emphasized words. Phrases like that remind me of Fox News (please excuse the comparison). And lastly, the author seems to take the denials of government officials and companies as fact - which, as we can all agree on I hope, isn't proof at all.
