To whom it may concern,

I request that I be properly classified as a news media requester. I am a documentary filmmaker who has had films I have authored distributed in over 2000 theaters by Warner Brothers, and I am requesting this information in that editorial capacity.

I have also been employed as a writer by NBC Universal which can be seen on the following iMDB link:


In addition, I have covered areas related to this request on the live streaming morning news program JackAM (twitch.tv/jackam) which has received of 300,000 viewing hours on the streaming platform Twitch. I plan to use my editorial skills to analyze and produce original reporting work in the form of a documentary film.

If you have any questions about my media status, please contact me.

Thank you very much for your time and understanding,

John Vance Robichaux
