Mike Cavender, RTDNA: “We’ve found it necessary to write far too often about the lack of openness in the Obama administration. Now, on the eve of Sunshine Week and an appeal to the U.S. Senate by RTDNA and a coalition of media groups in the Sunshine in Government Initiative to support FOIA reform, comes evidence the administration worked aggressively in 2014 to kill similar improvement measures. The irony is that it took an FOIA request to get the documents that prove it.”
