In an ironic twist, Vice-President Biden’s meeting on transparency was closed to the press. The LA Times reported:

In fact, today’s Biden schedule highlight is a meeting with the chief of transparency for economic recovery. But, unfortunately, the transparency meeting is non-transparent, closed to the press.Which makes it — what? — secret openness? Open secrecy?

For all the promises of transparency from both the President and Vice-President on the campaign trail, their record of carrying through with such promises leaves something to be desired.
