Wait a minute. The One for Whom We Have Waited said his administration would be much more transparent that others who had gone before. And he got reelected. Doesn’t that count for something?

IMHO they are so secret because so many of the things they do are illegal, unconstitutional, stupid, criminal and incompetent.

Wonder why our 4th Estate is not railing against the censorship they are enduring on the Southern border? Could it be they are anti Latino racists? Just wait until Univision gets the story our MSM were FORBIDDEN to cover. Can hardly wait until until either AL Jezerra or The Blaze scoops them with videos, commentaries, and the images the networks couldn't get. And since when can the government issue a gag order? Why are the cowardly Repukelicans not raising holy hell about the sanctity of the whistle-blower provisions in Federal law? Where are the subpoenas from Issa for border agents, doctors, supervisors and managers that issued the gag orders? Typical tyrannical shenanigans.

I think they mean he needs to be more covert about it. He is blowing their cover.

The American press & TV media are like rabid sports fans when it comes to their team; Obama & the Democrat party.
Are they actually asking for this regime to end politically driven suppression of news and information?
The same thing they (the press) engage in every day.
