Food for thought Brian...

I've heard you call for this before, so grab a dictionary and read up on it at 2AM and then say these words... Oh yeah, it does apply to me too!

Transparency, as used in a social context more generally, implies openness, communication, and accountability.

Transparency is operating in such a way that it is easy for others to see what actions are performed.

Media Transparency is the concept of determining how and why information is conveyed through various means. If the media and the public knows everything that happens in all authorities and county administrations there will be a lot of questions, protests and suggestions coming from media and the public. People who are interested in a certain issue will try to influence the decisions. Transparency creates an everyday participation in the political processes by media and the public. One tool used to increase everyday participation in political processes is Freedom of Information legislation and requests. Modern democracy builds on such participation of the people and media. There are, for anybody who is interested, many ways to influence the decisions at all levels in society.
