open the kimono
 v. phr.— «In this situation it’s essential for ABC to inform readers as to the disciplinary action taken. Was the offending reporter fired? Suspended? Given a stern talking to? Was a note put in their file? Maybe. ABC could also take the opportunity to inform readers about its “standards.” We looked but couldn’t find them anywhere on the site. The end result is some sort of unknown disciplinary action based on uncommunicated standards. Open the kimono a bit, please.» —“Those elusive broadcast corrections” by Craig Silverman Regret the Error Mar. 29, 2006. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
