While his heart may be in the right place, he is more than likely beating a dead horse. An even bigger issue he might want to tackle alongside this one, is why the Main Stream Media THEMSELVES are co-conspirators in this secrecy! They are every bit as guilty of keeping the sneakiness and secrecy going by failing to EXPOSE what these criminals are up to!

Had they done their job properly, we would have likely NEVER GONE INTO IRAQ, amongst too many other infractions to even count, rammed though behind the scenes by this completely corrupted gov of ours.

I think it's a nice change of pace to hear the head of AP calling the gov out, but this will likely fall on deaf ears...The press needs to MAKE them more open by uncovering what they are up to...This is called 'reporting'. lol

The Associated Press is one of several angencies that provide news to the rest of the media. It's news outlet. I am amazed that someone from the MSM took this stand and I'm very happy about it. Let's hope he's able to bring about some positive changes in the way news is reported.
