I know that in the USA, we have lived the past 8 years in lies upon lies. And I know that everyone is frustrated, we want the truth, we want open policies, we want answers to our questions. As a journalist, I have filed Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. FOIA helps journalists — and the general public — understand where our tax dollars go.
But I wonder what purpose it will serve to expose the guest log to the White House. I understand that we have a right to know, but I also think the President has the right to meet with people in his office without the media being all over it. I haven’t quite decided what I think it better.
In this day and age, the media runs with little news, making small stories blow out of control, and can miss important stories because they are not “sexy” enough. Do we really want to focus on each and every person who comes out of the White House? Don’t we have more important things to worry about?
