Or, you know, not.

Kudos to Carla Marinucci for doing her job, and to the San Francisco Chronicle for sticking up for her, but this needs a whole lot more media attention; after all, other media organizations need to be concerned over whether the White House will punish their reporters for simply doing their jobs, and then lie about it later.

And relatedly, can we finally dispense with the ridiculous notion that the Obama Administration is transparent about anything? Or that it ever intended to be in the first place?
