AT&T to transparency-seeking shareholders: shut up and take what you're given

Alan writes, "In a formal response to a motion by shareholders to get a vote requiring AT&T to publish a transparency report the telecom giant has said, essentially, it's none of your business."

The response claims that the decision (not) to publish a transparency report is a matter of normal business operation and so should not be the subject of a shareholder vote. Oh, and anyway they would only disclose what they've given to law enforcement. Cooperation with the three-letter-agencies still wouldn't be in the report. So, nyah!
