The article discusses the information control by the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama. A survey by the publication "Columbia Journalism Review" (CJR) and ProPublica reveals that a third of responding science journalists gave a poor rating on the government's effort for free information flow. Correspondent Carolyn Whetzel says that much of the issues regarding a regulation of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has not been heard by the public due to the media blockade.
