Episode Description:

Essential to honest and complete news reporting is having access to facts. Often, government entities do not want you to know the truth. To counter-act that attempt at deception, Maine has its own Freedom of Access to Information Law. It allows anyone to approach any government agency, ask for documentation on just about anything the government has done and that agency must comply or risk a law suit in court. News reporters use this tool all the time. Judy Meyer, of the Lewiston Sun-Journal will tell us just what is covered under the Freedom of Access Law (nearly everything), what some of the few exceptions are and how we, as citizens, can apply the law to gain access to hidden information. Access to information is just as important to grassroots media as it is to the so-called main stream media.
