...Singerís experience is shared by virtually every journalist on the government beat, from the White House on down. They can recite tales with similar outlines: An agency spokesman ó frequently a political appointee ó rejects the reporterís request for interviews, offers partial or nonresponsive replies, or delays responding at all until after the journalistís deadline has passed.

journalists say the lid has grown tighter under the Obama administration, whose chief executive promised in 2009 to bring ďan unprecedented level of opennessĒ to the federal government.

That's what your defense of Obama has come done to?

Not surprising, I suppose.

Obama promised...The list of things promised and not realized is long, as with most politicians. In their wisdom though, the American voter elected him twice. Not once, twice. Fool me once...
