Disparate treatment of whistleblowers


Whittaker Chambers is condemned to this day on the left, though now all reputable experts consider his charges (long derided as fabrications) as truthful. The Hollywood Ten are still treated as martyrs, those who testified against them as traitors.
Also, while glorifying Felt has any recognition been given to the fact that he must have cooperated with Hoover regarding blackmail, spying on Black Panthers, (possible bugging of Martin Luther King?), apathy regarding civil right movements,  and other infringements on civil liberties during that era?
