First comes scandal, then cover-up, then--
once in a great while--the whistle-blower.
Overlooked, disputed, disappeared, or dead,
these folks are the unsung heroes of the world,
going up against the giants without much hope
Some of these are based on true events and actual people,
some are speculative (and probably true) accounts
of just a smidgen of the corruption and dispicable nature
of this world.
In the end, it makes for fine, gripping, movie entertainment.
