US Censored Or Withheld Record Number Government Files


The U.S. government in the last year has censored, withheld, or said it was not able to obtain a record number of documents and information sought by journalists more than at any point in the last decade, according to an Associated Press analysis.

The AP also reports that in the last decade people who requested records under the Freedom of Information Act got censored documents or nothing in 78 percent of the 823,222 requests, marking another record.

The government said it found nothing 180,924 times when responding to requests and cited U.S. laws as a reason not release information another 63,749 times, spending a record $40.6 million in legal fees in defending its action to withhold the records.
