Bailout transparency update from Ellen Miller of Sunlight

Hey, Ellen Miller from the Sunlight Foundation updates us regarding reporting just where our money's going on the Sunlight blog:

ProPublica has been doing an admirable job of providing some transparency for the financial bailout by the federal government, including putting it all in perspective.

Others are keeping an eye on what’s going on. Bloomberg News is demanding that the Federal Reserve comply with congressional demands for transparency in the $2 trillion bailout of the banking system

This is a real opportunity for the Obama team. Make reporting on the bailout a model of the transparent government that they have so strongly advocated. Daily reporting, online in usable data formats would be a good place to start.
