Did you know a government analysis didn’t find parmesan cheese in a product sold as parmesan cheese? FOIA uncovered that. And luckily, the reporters mentioned FOIA in the story, or we’d never know FOIA did that.
Ahead of Sunshine Week we’re launching WITHOUT FOIA — an effort to showcase some of the more important stories that have relied on FOIA and to encourage journalists and others everywhere that whenever FOIA helps reveal part of the story, mention FOIA in the story.
If you’re looking for more examples, check out our FOIA Files, our searchable, sortable collection of 700+ stories over the last decade that have relied in some way on FOIA.
