Obama to Receive Secret Transparency Award - Then Snubs Meeting

President Barrack Obama was to receive a "Sunshine" award Thursday for transparency in government but two things prevent me from telling you about this story. First, the meeting to present the award for transparency in government was to be.... um... well... closed to the press! What!?
Secondly, the meeting scheduled with five open-government advocacy groups was suddenly canceled. The Miami Herald said the reasons for the cancellation were not entirely... transparent.
The President really says he means well when it comes to transparency and open government, but when it gets down to it... He just doesn't show up and take action to back up his words.
