I would have to disagree and say that we are still petrified as an org to put things out officially that cast us in less than a glowing light. Even unofficially, in our own journals, tumblrs, etc, I see staff hesitating to really dig into the work and the issues we're having, and going through a lot of self-censorship. I absolutely think Comms has a tough job keeping up with everything we want/need posted, but there's also a fundamental problem of what kind of information is deemed acceptable---either directly or implicitly, as part of the organizational culture---for sharing. Even with all of our work toward greater transparency this year, there are still sacred cows, still topics we shy away from discussing publicly or privately because of the stigma attached to being that person who openly critiqued project X or process Y.
