Obama administration Refuses info Freddie Mac minutes during Rahm Emanuel's time as a director

This is amazing. Given the financial problems, given issues of corruption, and given the Obama administration's promises of openness, where is the press' outrage over this?

The Obama administration rejected a Tribune request under the Freedom of Information Act to review Freddie Mac board minutes and correspondence during Emanuel’s time as a director. The documents, obtained by Falcon for his investigation, were “commercial information” exempt from disclosure, according to a lawyer for the Federal Housing Finance Agency. . . . . One of Emanuel’s fellow directors at Freddie Mac was Neil Hartigan, the former Illinois attorney general. Hartigan said Emanuel’s primary contribution was explaining to others on the board how to play the levers of power. . . . . .
