NY Times editor: Obama White House 'the most secretive' she's ever covered

In an interview with a Middle East-based news agency, the executive editor for the New York Times described the Obama Administrative as "the most secretive" she's encountered in over two decades worth of her being in the newspaper business, as reported by the right-of-center news portal News Busters on Jan. 23, 2014.

Set to air this upcoming Sunday, reporter John Seigenthaler of the Persian Gulf-based al-Jazeera news service (American branch) had quite an illuminating interview with one of the heaviest of hitters of the Fourth Estate as he quizzed the executive editor of The New York Times Jill Abramson.

With critics on the right often hammering The Times as being less than objective at times in their reporting, as well of often leaning to the left, Abramson's professional take of Barack Obama and his Administration has been nothing less than a journalistic bombshell of the thermo-nuclear variety.

Noting that she's worked within the Washington Beltway for 22 years, Abramson related to the Arab-centric network her experiences with the Obama Administration as “the most secretive White House that I have ever been involved in covering."

Not quite done, Abramson detailed her résumé, citing she's covered more than a few Republican presidencies:

I spent 22 years of my career in Washington and covered presidents from President Reagan on up through now, and I was Washington bureau chief of the Times during George W. Bush's first term.

Barack Obama has often and quite loudly declared during various campaign seasons as well as recently as Feb. 14, 2013 during as so-called "Google Hangout," the Chief Executive reiterated:

This is the most transparent administration in history.
