Think FOIA is a Paper Tiger? The New York Times Gives It Some Bite (The New York Times)

Making good use of the Freedom of Information Act can seem like an uphill battle to journalists. The terms of the law can make it easy for federal agencies to redact huge pieces of information or refuse to release documents altogether. However, with the work of media lawyers, news organizations have been able to achieve major victories and set important precedents for free information and government transparency.
