News Conference: More about you than about me
Excerpted from this post at News Conference
... Open government and freedom of information — the theme of Sunshine Week — should be more about you, as a citizen, and less about me, a journalist. ... If only this were limited to the FBI. All across the country, day in and day out, some (not all) local, state and federal government officials disregard and violate laws regarding public access. (For examples, visit the SunshineWeek Web site.) Just keep in mind that, when these violations occur, you might be denied — indirectly, through news reports, or directly — information that might be important to you, your family, your business or your neighborhood. It's all about you.
