To celebrate Sunshine Week (March 16-22), I’ve asked some of the top journalists from around the country to tell me how they use public records in their reporting.
Starting Sunday, reporters from The Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, NBC 4 in Washington and many others will share stories they’ve done in the past year and explain what public records they used. I can’t wait to share their experiences and stories with you.
I hope you’ll join me this week in celebrating open government and freedom of information. These records aren’t just for journalists – they belong to everyone.
