The King has left the building
Lets compare that to Bill Clinton's ordeal. I mean when Kenneth Starr came out with the report that Mr. Clinton was in the oval office, with the door a bit open, getting "his penis stimulated" by miss Lewinsky, eating a slice of cold pizza, and on the phone with a congressman at 2 AM?!?!? First thing I thought of was what the fuck am I doing with my life? This guy doesnt have time for decent food or sex, just happy with the cold pizza and the fat chick while discussing welfare and labor reforms and I complain about waking up early? I mean it was humbling. The second thought I got was, isnt that taking the transparency thing too far? I mean, since when were the republicans the Taliban? Weren't they the party that favored individualism and privacy? Wasnt Raegen's slogan "get the government off my back?"
Anyway, back to topic. We have two pictures. The first is a pseudo-government that just bans the flow of information, unless it is pre-approved. Even then, it takes a whole morning to confirm the story from sources quoting sources. The second is a free flow of information, to the point that political figures are painfully not interesting, and people's lives are not interrupted by stopping the stream of live updates. I think the second bit is a healthier option.
