‘What Is The FCC Hiding?’ As Net Neutrality Deadline Looms, Agency Refuses FOIA Requests For Crucial Records
"Something here is rotten—and it's time for the FCC to come clean. Regrettably, this agency will not do this on its own. So it falls to those who seek to investigate from outside its walls."
