ChangeTracker Update: Big Changes to WhiteHouse.gov on Obama’s 100th Day

(White House Official Photo)Our ever-watchful ChangeTracker tool spied a flurry of activity at whitehouse.gov yesterday – the administration updated more than two dozen web pages. Changes included some sweeping edits and complete rewrites to "The Agenda" area of the site, now renamed as "Issues."

A few specific changes we noticed:

  • The Iraq page was deleted and replaced with a single paragraph on the foreign policy page.
  • Like many issues pages the civil rights page was dramatically cut. 756 words devoted to supporting the LGBT community have been replaced with two sentences.
  • And nearly all issues pages now begin with a mini-progress report detailing what President Obama has done for you.

To see the changes for yourself, check out ChangeTracker. If you notice something interesting, please share! Just comment, email us at suggestions@propublica.org or send a tweet to @ChangeTracker.
