Over at ZDNet, David Berlind takes a deeper look at the transparency issue. He notes a posting that included an MP3 audio link of a key interview he did for the story. It's a fine idea.
In an ideal world I'd like to have had access to a full transcript as well, because I a) can read faster than I can listen; and b) I can quote more easily from text than audio. But that's asking a lot, partly because it's not cheap to get transcripts. Maybe someone will create a transcript of the audio file and post it somewhere else.
The Pentagon posts transcripts of major interviews with Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz, and has for some time. For example, there's this one.
But when people do this, they should be consistent. The Pentagon deleted a section in a Washington Post interview, and the Post promptly posted its own transcript containing the missing lines. The Pentagon cost itself some credibility in this case, after gaining it with its prior transparency.
