Jason Leopold on FOIA Fishing

July 7, 2014

Jason Leopold joins us to discuss how investigative journalists can use The Freedom of Information Act to unearth facts while pissing off all the right people.

Jason Leopold is an investigative reporter covering Guantanamo, counterterrorism, national security, human rights, open government and civil liberties issues. He’s been called a “FOIA Terrorist” by federal employees for his aggressive use of the Freedom of Information Act, which included suing the FBI and forcing the agency to changes its policies. He’s the author of the memoir, News Junkie, and an ebook, From Hopeful to Immigrant to FBI Informant: The Inside Story of the Other Abu Zubaidah.
