Before taking office, President Obama stated his intent to bring unheralded transparency to his administration in a stark contrast to the secretive years of the Bush White House. Ari Melber, net movement correspondent for The Nation assessed that progress at the "Obama@100: A Progress Report from The Nation" panel discussion in Washington, DC April 22.

While the President has done well honoring public information requests and embracing web and citizen media, access to information by the other two branches remains challenging. Melber was joined by The Nation's Editor and Publisher Katrina vanden Heuvel, Washington, DC Editor Chris Hayes, National Affairs Correspondent William Greider, the Executive Director of the Center for Community Change Deepak Bhargava, Congresswoman Donna Edwards (D-MD) and Congressman Steve Cohen (D-TN).
