What does any dishonest public official fear? Whistleblowers; which is exactly what SecureDrop specializes in. SecureDrop allows you to anonymously upload documents for journalists to use. Guides for journalists and sources show how SecureDrop allows sources to feel secure when giving journalists information, an act that may hurt their careers. The site also allows for donations to maintain the tool. SecureDrop is great because it eliminates the uncomfortable positions sources are put in when revealing information the public needs to know. — Ben Jacobs
