NYT sues FCC, says it hid evidence of Russia meddling in net neutrality repealJon Brodkin / Ars Technica - 1 year ago
  • The New York Times has sued the Federal Communications Commission over the agency’s refusal to release records that the Times believes might shed light on Russian interference in the net neutrality repeal proceeding.
  • The Times made a Freedom of Information Act (FoIA) request in June 2017 for FCC server logs related to the system for accepting public comments on FCC Chairman Ajit Pai’s repeal of net neutrality rules.
  • This led to a months-long process in which the Times repeatedly narrowed its public records request in order to overcome the FCC’s various objections.
