Washington Post: On YouTube, Charges of Security Flaws

From the Washington Post, via Truthout.org:

"Michael De Kort was frustrated. The 41-year-old Lockheed Martin engineer had complained to his bosses. He had told his story to government investigators. He had called congressmen. But when no one seemed to be stepping up to correct what he saw as critical security flaws in a fleet of refurbished Coast Guard patrol boats, De Kort did just about the only thing left he could think of to get action: He made a video and posted it on YouTube.com."

Comment: And this is why citizen media, citizen journalism, whatever you want to call it, is winning.
