Campaign: Making Government Operations More Open

On/off-the-record rule

We propose a new guideline regarding whether a government official should talk to the press on- or off-the-record:

 

Any government official who gives a reporter information that supports the government's position should be considered "on-the-record," i.e. the reporter should be able to source the information to the official.
