Privatized Government Functions and Freedom of Information: Public Accountability in an Age of Private Governance.
Bunker, Matthew D.; Davis, Charles N.
Journalism and Mass Communication Quarterly, v75 n3 p464-77 Aut 1998
Contributes to legal scholarship and communication scholarship by examining how increased privatization has posed increasing problems for public access to governmental records when a governmental function has been privatized. Analyzes one state's struggle to determine such disclosure. Suggests that courts turn to a "public function" analysis that draws upon the constitutional concept of state action. (SR)
