Pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act, I hereby request the following records:

I am a career journalist with work that has appeared at The Daily Beast among other publications.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.
