Annals of the Neo-Soviet Crackdown: So Much for Open Government

ITAR-TASS reports:

Beginning from October 18 sessions of the Russian government will no longer be broadcast to journalists live, Chief of the Protocol department of the government press and information service Alexander Zharov said on Thursday. Taking into account the character of information that if often secret the government will find it more convenient and productive to work in a closed regime, Zharov said. Journalists will be able to watch live the prime minister making an opening speech, while ministers who deliver the main reports will meet journalists upon completion of the Cabinet meetings, Zharov said.
Gosh. It really does seem like Mr. Putin has something to hide, doesn't it?
