A quick follow-up note to Monday's post, referencing this story about the administration setting a new record for censoring and denying requests for information from the public. You know, "the people" part of the operation.
I don't know about the whole "record-setting" part of the claim. More requests can mean more denials, and other factors can affect whether or not 2014 really was the top year for denying requests. But I do know it's a conversation we were told we wouldn't be having.
