This site is run by one person. I’m not aligned with or paid by any media outlet, nonprofit, university, grant-giving entity, or anyone else. I’m just a rogue transparency activist. All money to run this site, dig up important documents, and force transparency comes from you, my readers. (My other income comes from writing and editing books on a freelance basis.)

I’ve obtained and posted previously unseen documents from FBI, Justice Dept, ICE, Border Patrol, intelligence agencies, ATF, NASA, the Drug Czar, the Department of Energy, police departments, internal watchdogs (e.g. Inspectors General), and dozens of other agencies. I broke the news that ICE wants to destroy its documents about deaths and rapes of people being detained in its facilities. I was the first to post Martin Luther King’s full FBI file (16,000+ pages). I successfully pressured the National Archives to be more transparent about its document-destruction process.

At any given moment, I have hundreds of FOIA requests in the works. Help me do this all day, every day…
