Stance: Roy Greenslade is an advocate for transparency

The principle of transparency should apply to all those in powerful positions, including the media. When journalist Roy Greenslade addressed an international press awards dinner in 2009 and spoke of the importance of journalistic 'transparency', I wonder if he blushed, even a little.

Transparency in the media was something that he wrote about and spoke about many times and he has been described as a 'prominent transparency advocate'.

He backed calls for the New York Times to be more 'transparent' about the experts it cited and endorsed concerns about "the closeness of politicians, media executives and senior journalists".
