Neiman Reports devotes its spring issue to “21st Century Muckrakers” which means that many of the articles deal with trying to crack government secrecy or to gather otherwise hard to get government information. Among the dozens of articles, “Nation of Secrets:” author Ted Gup laments that “Secrecy itself gets short shrift” in the press. Secrecy News’ Steven Aftergood writes of efforts to gather classified and other sensitive information for the benefit of the public, and Los Angeles Times reporter Bob Drogin tells of his investigations that unmasked CIA source “Curveball” as a liar.
