Has the Obama Administration Reneged on its Openness Promise?

Despite the promise from +Barack Obama to lead an "era of openness", many journalists and reporters feel it's been quite the opposite, as this article in the +Washington Post highlights.

Many #media  professionals are becoming increasingly frustrated by attempts from +The White House to postpone or ignore interview requests:

Interview requests that are granted are closely monitored, reporters say, with a press “minder” sitting in. Some agencies require reporters to pose their questions by e-mail, a tactic that enables officials to carefully craft and vet their replies.

Tensions between reporters and public information officers — “hacks and flacks” in the vernacular — aren’t new, of course. Reporters have always wanted more information than #government  officials have been willing or able to give.

But journalists say the lid has grown tighter under the #obama  administration, whose chief executive promised in 2009 to bring “an unprecedented level of openness” to the federal government.

Reporters often encounter closed doors when seeking data and interviews from the administration.

Sometimes we let our thoughts of tomorrow take up too much of today. http://oak.ctx.ly/r/2pipg

It turns out that Jupiter may be more than just an enormous ball of gas spinning a few hundred million miles farther out in the solar system.

What happened to the "most transparent administration" promise?
The Obama administration set a new record again for more often than ever censoring government files or outright denying access to them last year under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act, according to a new analysis of federal data by The Associated Press.

We had to go in on a Saturday right around Christmas time 2012. We were visiting family (we live in Connecticut). The Doctor saw us promptly, checked out my 6 month old, gave him an accurate diagnosis and a prescription to resolve the issue. The total time with the Doctor was maybe 15 minutes, and the time at the counter was even less. The only downside was that we had to wait 30 minutes to see the doctor. That wasn't a deal breaker, since it was a Saturday and they were showing a bowl game, and there was only one Doctor. The place was clean, they had (clean) toys, books, and plenty of other items to keep small children (my 4 year old) entertained. The receptionist/nurse was very professional, and was also cheerful when discussing everything including payment options. The price was fantastic for the visit. Hopefully I won't have to go back whenever I visit Utah, but if I had to go visit a Doctor when in town, this is the place I would go to. They have a very budget friendly membership/copay plan, which helped us keep our costs down.
