  • Greg LeMond (the bicyclist who said Lance Armstrong was a cheater and became a pariah in the sport)
  • Harry Markopolos (the portfolio manager who saw that Bernie Madoff's numbers didn't add up)
  • Ernest Hemingway, who insisted he was being trailed by the FBI (he was)
  • Sinead O'Connor (for a much-talked-about SNL appearance in which she blew the whistle on rampant sexual abuse in the Roman Catholic Church)
  • John Lydon (aka Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols, who tried to alert the world decades ago about alleged sexual predator Jimmy Savile)
See the full list here. (So maybe we should listen to Stephen Hawking on this one?)
