It is very hard for transparency these days.<quoted text>
All you have to do is to keep trying and establish rules with input specified from the public, and also, ask for transparency like reports, especially on the matters of corruption.
Truth be told there are very few investigative journalist especially with the corporate taking air heads on corporate rightwing media and corporate mainstream media.
Thank GOD for the internet.

The U.S. establishment media in a nutshell
April 5, 2008 / http://tinyurl.com/8xp26v
In the past two weeks, the following events transpired. A Department of Justice memo, authored by John Yoo, was released which authorized torture and presidential lawbreaking. It was revealed that the Bush administration declared the Fourth Amendment of the Bill of Rights to be inapplicable to "domestic military operations" within the U.S. The U.S. Attorney General appears to have fabricated a key event leading to the 9/11 attacks and made patently false statements about surveillance laws and related lawsuits. Barack Obama went bowling in Pennsylvania and had a low score.
Here are the number of times, according to NEXIS, that various topics have been mentioned in the media over the past thirty days:
"Yoo and torture" - 102
"Mukasey and 9/11" -- 73
"Yoo and Fourth Amendment" -- 16
"Obama and bowling" -- 1,043
"Obama and Wright" -- More than 3,000 (too many to be counted)
"Obama and patriotism" - 1,607
"Clinton and Lewinsky" -- 1,079
