Congratulation to these forks but I'm wondering how much freedom to they have to do their job without the heavy hands of the govt.? Are the govt. willing to open their books for these journalist? We all know the answers, I want to point out how phony our govt. are. If the truth come out hell will break loose.

That's a good point having access to documents that should be public. But what I'm crossing my fingers for is some investigative journalism, and one day some actor (chinese,palangi or tongan) to walk in with 100k or something and try bribe an official with a hidden camera or something. Or to go back and see what people promised and what they actually done. Idk, something like that. Some are probably doing it now, but I would like to see more of it.
