To Whom It May Concern:
This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:
All files pertaining to Charles Hirsch Barris, popularly known as Chuck Barris, creator of the "Gong Show" who also claimed to be associated with the CIA. Barris died Tuesday, March 22, 2017, according to Barris' representatives and as reported in the New York Times and many other outlets (https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/22/arts/chuck-barris-dead-gong-show-creator.html).
Please also conduct a search of the Central Records System, including but not limited to the Electronic Surveillance (ELSUR) Indices, the Microphone Surveillance (MISUR) Indices, the Physical Surveillance (FISUR) Indices, and the Technical Surveillance (TESUR) Indices, for both main-file records and cross-reference records.
The requested documents will be processed by a journalist before being made available to the general public. Because this request isn't being made for commercial purposes, I ask that you waive all fees.
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.
Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.
A no responsive documents response.
An acknowledgement letter, stating the request is being processed.
To Whom It May Concern:
I wanted to follow up on the following Freedom of Information request, copied below, and originally submitted on March 22, 2017. Please let me know when I can expect to receive a response, or if further clarification is needed.
Thanks for your help, and let me know if further clarification is needed.
I would like to appeal the determination on my request, as I don't think an adequate search was performed. The response letter indicated that a search was performed of the electronic surveillance index, but I also requested searches of the Microphone Surveillance (MISUR) Indices, the Physical Surveillance (FISUR) Indices, and the Technical Surveillance (TESUR) Indices.
