Read This Now - Disturbing Anonymity Demanded By EPA

CJR has a report up on the EPA's extremely disturbing recent tendency to demand anonymity for senior officials during conference calls, the EPA has gone so far as to refuse to identify the officials while they're answering questions.

As several reporters point out, the EPA could effectively be having horribly unqualified individuals commenting in theses cases (it doesn't appear that they have though). Bottom line is that perhaps more so than any other agency the public deserves transparency from the EPA. This is the agency that oversees and protects the environments in which we live, the very air and water that we breathe and drink.

Cut the crap EPA, you shouldn't have anything to hide, and you should be telling the public whats happening by name.
