On Wednesday night, MSNBC’s 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue featured the recent Mother Jones piece on changes at the White House website. In the segment, I discussed President Barack Obama’s first-day moves to make his administration more transparent and accountable, and I identified the money quote of the day, which was contained in a memo the president issued: “In the face of doubt, openness prevails.”

Because I’ve written about such matters, MSNBC’s David Shuster awarded me the highly coveted “Muckraker of the Day” award. Or is it more like a designation? No cash comes with it, but I was honored to be chosen on such a historic day.
