White House claims immunity from FOIA.........WTF!!
[link to www.redstate.com]


It’s trolling them so. Darn. Hard: “The White House is removing a federal regulation that subjects its Office of Administration to the Freedom of Information Act, making official a policy under Presidents Bush and Obama to reject all requests for records to that office… the timing of the move raised eyebrows among transparency advocates, coming as it did on National Freedom of Information Day.” And it’s Sunshine Week! Can’t forget that.

You get the feeling that USA Today is either scratching its head over the timing of it all, or at least trying to look like it’s scratching its head; while the change doesn’t actually make the White House’s emails permanently inaccessible*, the timing is odd. As the article notes, the court decision that this action is based on happened back in 2009, and they’re just getting around to formally noting it now. Then again, from 2009 to, oh, about two or so weeks ago the question was kind of obscure anyway for most people.

The press still asleep at the switch , but hey- if all they're going to do is report the 'if it bleeds, it leads' stuff from the feeds like AP and Reuters then it's fair to say that investigative journalism is dead, no?

FOIA is only for those with nothing to hide.

I agree they make a joke out of FIOA everytime they black out entire paragraphs. But this is blatant on a whole nother level.
