Transparent whether we like it or not

Poor William Kennard wrote an editorial in the New York Times opposing net neutrality. While he disclosed that he sits on the board of directors at the New York Times he neglected to mention that he also sits on the board of directors of Sprint Nextel Corporation, Hawaiian Telcom and Insight Communications. Naturally a high traffic political blog pick it up and ran with it.

Selective disclosure is just as bad as no disclosure. We need to teach our clients that they have to disclose all relevant facts; because if they don’t their adversaries will.

At the first New Communications Forum Andrew Lark said “We are all walking around without our clothes.” I think that just about sums it up.
