Media Use of the Freedom of Information Act.
Fajans, Arthur E.
Government Information Quarterly, v1 n4 p351-64 1984
This examination of the news media use of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) as a source of information focuses on three categories of journalists: non-users; reactive or periodic users; and paper chasers. The use of the FOIA reflects differing views on newsgathering methods, i.e., through people or through documents. (CLB)
