EFF Releases FAQ to Help Bloggers Investigate the Government

EFF has updated the Legal Guide for Bloggers to include a new section on the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), the federal open government law. The FAQ explains how bloggers can use the FOIA to ask for government records, get processing fees waived, and what to do if an agency denies a request. It also shows online journalists how to take advantage of the FOIA's special treatment for news media requesters.

For more information about EFF's FOIA work, check out the FLAG Project.
